Mark Hamill did a great job of voicing The Joker in Batman: Arkham Asylum, and the ex-Skywalker is set to reprise his role in the sequel, Arkham City. While browsing Rock, Paper, Shotgun this morning, I noticed that the villan features heavily in a new trailer for the game that looks pretty swanky.
We learned last week that Arkham City has been delayed on the PC. The game was originally supposed to come out on October 18, but that date now only applies to console versions. PC gamers will have to wait until sometime in November to don the Dark Knight's cowl.
Arkham Asylum was a bit of a surprise hit for developer Rocksteady, whose previous game, Urban Chaos: Riot Response received Metacritic scores in the low 70s. Arkham Asylum garnered a Metacritic score of 91 out of 100, and having played the game, I tend to agree. After Rage and Battlefield 3, I think I'm looking forward to Arkham City more than any other PC game due out this holiday season.
