The Dark Knight Rises! …in video games! At E3 2011, one of the most anticipated games of the year is on display, Batman: Arkham City. The new Batman game was announced for the PS3, Xbox360, PC and soon to be Wii 2, now called Nintendo Wii U. You heard it! Batman is back and is roaming around Gotham’s Arkham City this time.

The world of Batman can be a scary one. I mean, sure, it’s cool to read about or watch, via comics and movies. It’s all sorts of colorful and cranky, and we ain’t got nothing against capes! But then you start dealing with maniacal masterminds like the Joker and his goons, and you realize you shouldn’t be playing around. Actually, wait… maybe we should be doing just that! With megahits like Arkham Asylum and now Arkham City, Warner Bros. Interactive and Monolith Productions are hoping to hop the hype train to Gotham City with a brand new multiplayer downloadable game, Gotham City Imposters. The first person shooter (FPS) styled game pits the gamer against Batman imposters and Joker imposters, heading to an Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and/or PC near you later this year.

Batman: Arkham Asylum revolutionized many things; stealth-based games, action games, the super hero genre, etc. It set a grand stage across the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, bringing DC Comics’ Dark Knight into one of the greatest games of this generation. So what does the planned sequel, Batman: Arkham City, have to do? Everything! Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment are working with DC Comics, readying the next chapter for a release October 18th, 2011. In addition to bringing back all the Bat-tastic gameplay from the first title, the voice acting will once feature Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill as Batman and the Joker – the same team that revolutionized Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited. …and for maybe the last time? Check out the trailer, and let us know if you think this should be what all games are like!
