Batman: Return to Arkham announced, out on July 26

55 second read


Which Batman game is the best? If you mentioned the Sunsoft game based on the 1989 Batman film for the NES, you wouldn’t be far off. And then there’s Rocksteady’s Arkham series. Before Batman: Arkham Asylum rolled around, games featuring the caped crusader rarely ever deviated from presenting one facet of the dark knight. You either got to solve some mysteries, be a shadow in the night or punch crime. But all three at the same time? Keep dreaming.

And then Batman: Arkham Asylum arrived. It was glorious stuff, that finally gave the Batman the game that he deserved on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 console generation. And now it’s headed to current generation consoles. Get ready to enter the madhouse again, as Warner Bros. Interactive has officially announced (at long bloody last) Batman: Return to Arkham.

The remaster is out on July 26, and will include every bit of DLC that came with both games. Pity Batman: Arkham Origins isn’t included.

    Wait… So Return to Arkham isn’t a new game? It’s a remaster? Odd title….

    Arkham Asylum is every bit as good as when it was first released (until that last boss fight). Agreed on Batman for the NES Darryn but the first Batman game I ever fell in love with was on C64.

    I’m keen to see how much they’ve remastered Asylum. That game was rather meh looking.

      It was fun. I would play it right now, on my Xbox One, if they made it backwards compatible.

      Yes,all the better to play it with remastered graphics and stuff.

    That might be worth a future purchase, is awesome.

    But, by both games, you mean Arkham meh City as well? Too open, did not give the fun factor that the first gave.
