Rocksteady Studios

Rocksteady Studios beat out Infinity Ward (of Modern Warfare 2 fame) for studio of the year at this years Video Game Awards. This upset is likely due to the fact that Rocksteady created a genuinely enjoyable game based on a superhero. A feat so unheard of that they even won a Guinness World Record. So how does a studio keep their momentum at super sonic speed? Release a trailer that shows the Joker laughing above a vanquished Gotham as his thugs roam the streets and maybe even feature a glimpse of the Iceberg Lounge. Its all at Arkhamhasmoved.com.


SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DO NOT READ THE FOLLOWING IF YOU HAVEN'T BEATEN ARKHAM ASYLUM YET!!!!!!!!



At the end of the video game, we saw Titan Joker fall at the hands (or rather hand) of Batman, and his explosive gel. In the new teaser Joker pauses mid-laugh to spit out what appeared to be a tooth, and Harley Quin is still in her makeshift nurse outfit, meaning the events take place right after the first game. Does this mean that Batman will be fighting with an injured right arm? Perhaps we'll be seeing Nightwing or Robin show up to assist him if this is the case. Will the game open with Batman stopping Two-Face's bank robbery? Also, for those who continued watching after the credits, there was no reference to Scarecrow's special ending in which he obtains the last parts of the Titan formula, this will undoubtedly be a major part of the game as well.


From the looks of it Rocksteady and Eidos are ready to deliver yet again and their fans are anxiously waiting.
