Before the dust settled on the beginning of this year's Video Game Awards on Spike, the first surprise announcement was the revelation that Batman: Arkham Asylum would get a sequel.

 

Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 -- which is what we'll call it until an official title is revealed -- presumably continues where the original critically acclaimed Rocksteady title left off, and was revealed via diabolical plot from Batman's Nemesis The Joker. Attempting to gas those in attendance, Mark Hamill's threatening vocals reverberated throughout the audience revealing a sequel people "didn't expect." After smashing through sales charts and the assumptions that all licensed titles are crap, we expected nothing less. Take that, Joker!

Let me be the first to say too soon.

 

Assuming its a 2010 release (which I think is very likely) I dont honestly see how they can make a great sequel with enough new ideas. I mean even CoD games have a turnaround time of 2 years and they still end up looking like clones of each other.

Something I noticed about the trailer

-The Doors look same as AA 1

-Joker's Face still looks smashed

-Joker on blood dosage

-Why does Harley not speak?

-Maybe they have devided the city into levels

and maybe the last one will take in an amusement park or FUN HOUSE like the "Killing Joke"

+1

 

Why Arkham again? Why not use a different setting and plotline? The Batman franchise has so much potential.

 

Either way, I hope it turns out to be as good if not better than AA.

The trailer suggests that the inmates of the Asylum have moved into or rather broken free into Gotham City. Thats why it says 'Arkham has moved'. Should be very very intresting.

Aint Arkham Asylum 2 a tentative title??

 

Seems like it. Considering the trailer didn't exactly show the title either. In which case it's a good thing. It's like a proper sequel that expands upon the first game.
