Gotham's gone mad in new Arkham City trailer

12.13.2010

I'm not going to bring you all the trailers from Spike's VGAs this weekend, but I will show you another one besides Guillermo Del Toro's inSANE that I think you'll find worthwhile.

It's the first full length spot for Arkham City, the sequel to Arkham Asylum, which was one of the best games of last year.

Yes, it's kind of cheating to showcase cutscene heavy footage like this, but wow, I'm not usually impressed by animation very much these days, but the realism here is pretty incredible.

Check it out below, and find out who the main baddie will be this time around.

Extra Tidbit: Someday those will be in-game graphics. Someday.

holy shit.. I dont Play video games anymore other then Madden, But this shit makes me want to buy a PS3

I doubt it, but im still hoping Nolans people can design a Batman suit that has this look.. Ive Been wanting to see a live action Batman suit with Dark Grey body armor with Black Cowl, Cape, insignia, Gloves & Boots.. its such a great look..

P.S. BATMAN, Greatest Of All Time

I can't wait to bash more thugs with the perfect fighting system made for Batman. Whoever invented the Freeflow fighting system has my undying gratitude.

DUDE...

...please make more cut scenes and string them together for 2 hours and call it a movie-- this was the best tone and look for a realistic Batman that I have seen yet. Sorry Nolan-- I do like your movies, but this trailer is right on the mark. The level of realism and expression was also very impressive. I can actually see how a digital film could possibly replace actors watching this thing... other films using digital actors could take a lesson or two from this. Im looking at you, Tron. The

The lighting-- the design... If you "dont" make a movie, it really would feel like a loss. At any rate, even though we havent seen any gameplay fotage yet, Im definitely buying this game when it comes out. The first one was top notch so Im confident that the new one will be good stuff.

Got to agree this is an accurate interpretation.

I'm sick of Burton's Universe, I'm sick of Nolan's universe or vision or whatever you want to call it. And I'm definitely sick of Schumachers universe. This is how a Batman film should look. And this is how batman should act,sound,look, and fight. You can tell the people behind the games actually love the source material and aren't simply trying to do their own thing and label it Batman.
This game is going to be awesome and doesn't Hugo sound like Christopher Lee?

This is what gotham city should look like. Nolans Batman killed the gothic touch of the city. I hope the next will be his last so we can bring back the comic style.

If this was a Star Wars video game trailer, there would have been 30 posts simply saying "Better than prequels" .. Always nice to see that we all agree Nolan is doing it right.

I would love if they did a direct-to-dvd Batman movie like this! But anyway, the game looks amazing.

The rumors about Strange in TDKR

Those rumors were planted to create buzz about Hugo Strange and boost sales of Arkham City. Seriously, think about how much Batman fans have been talking up Hugo Strange in the past month...You can't buy that type of publicity for a video game, but they figured out a way to get people talking about it and hyped about the character. Very clever.

I was really hoping that this was the storyline for TDKR, but oh well. Though, this game looks BADASS!

Hmmm

Awesome first game, awesome trailer. This is the last time (according to Mark Hamil himself) that he will voice The Joker.

It makes sense that TDKR may include Hugo Strange. This is Warner Bros. way of getting him out there before the film comes out. Just a possibility.

EPIC

This trailer is SO epic. The first game was amazing. It is interesting to see that Hugo Strange is the main villain as has been rumored for TDKR. Let me be the first to suggest that they need to do a full length feature using this animation!!! I would happily pay to see THAT in 3-D!!

I often wonder why they don't make shorts or films like this. The cinematic opening for the DCUO game is unbelievable.

Although the DCU original animated movies and shorts have been pretty cool.

So...

All the rumors we've been hearing about TDKR were really for Arkham City? It's fine either way, just curious?

Epic

I don't use that word too often, but it certainly seems to apply in this case.
