Holy silver age wackiness Batman! While the two Arkham games may have re-established the Dark Knight as a force to be reckoned with in gaming, they also happened to tell one complete story, closing the curtain on one memorable experience. But seeing as how they’ve made a ton of cash as well, it’s clear that the night isn’t over yet for the caped crusader, as Warner Bros Interactive has tapped Rocksteady to once again get cracking on a sequel of sorts.
According to Variety, Rocksteady will be taking the Batman back to a more optimistic, and somewhat goofier, age. Using the classic issues from the fifties and sixties era as inspiration, they’ll be tackling a prequel that pits the Batman against the Joker for the very first time.
Reports about the Batman racing to help give Aquaman a glass of water in one mission, after the aquatic avenger stays on land for almost a solid hour, are unverified at this point.
Still, considering the darker tone of the previous game, maybe a ray of more absurd and colourful light could give the Dark Knight a breath of fresh air, should the rumour turn out to be true.
