The Dark Knight was, without doubt, a blockbuster in every sense of the word. Its video game counterpart unfortunately didn’t fare quite as well. The Pandemic Brisbane developed video game adaptation of Chris Nolan’s action masterpiece has been shelved, with the studio itself now defunct.

Thankfully, fans of ol’ pointy ears have something else to look forward to; And holy hole in a donut, does it look good, Batman!

More screens and trailer after the jump!

Batman: Arkham Asylum is based firmly on the comic book source, as opposed to other media adaptations. The game will take place primarily in and around the aforementioned Arkham Asylum, and is said to include RPG elements. Interestingly, It’ll also feature investigations of a CSI-inspired nature. The last Batman game I really enjoyed was Sunsoft’s Batman for the NES, but this looks to usurp that as my favourite outing as the Masked Manhunter.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    This game looks like it’s shaping up to be legen…(wait for it)….dary.
    Here’s hoping the gameplay & story will match the visual quality.
