Arkham City Game Images

Guess what leaked onto the interwebz?

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and claim that Batman: Arkham Asylum was probably the greatest video game adaptation of a comic book I have ever seen- and I credit that to the fact that the game developers hired people that actually care about the characters, and Batman, to script the game. Hiring long time Batman writer Paul Dini to write Batman: Arkham Asylum was the perfect move- it's no wonder that the game was such a success. So it wasn't much of a surprise when it was announced that Dini would be working on the script of the game's sequel, Batman: Arkham City. Since that announcement, fans of the first game have been on the edge of their seats itching to catch glimpses of Batman's upcoming adventure. Well, if you've been wishing for a look at what the sequel will look like, then you're definitely in luck. The screen captures of Batman: Arkham City 2   were found on an anonymous Flickr account and were picked up by NeoGAF before spreading like wildfire throughout the interwebs- and they look AMAZING. We get an awesome look at Two-Face and Catwoman, and see that Detective Mode will return- I love detective mode! The big question is, will we finally be able to drive the Batmobile in the second game? See the awesomeness below.

I'm hoping this will out do the first; 
I like the addition of bullet trajectory in detective mode.

Saw this on Giantbomb this morning ;P 
 
Looks pretty legit though. If they turn out to be fake, I think the guy who faked them deserves an award, LOL

Everything looks fantastic. 
 
My only concern is them rushing this to get this game out there and have the game turn out very poor.

Harley Quinn's change of outfit from S&M nurse to more familiar 'jester girl' feels more fitting for the urban environments in the game. Catwoman looks amazing, reminds me of the Adam Hughes design specifically. Two face looks gruesome and reminiscent of the 90's Batman: TAS design. 
 
Glad to see Batman's outfit has barely changed. Only difference seems to be the gauntlet / glove design seems modified. Otherwise they've kept the best designed Batman costume I think I've ever seen. 
 
Now here's to hoping they don't cock it all up!

Dude I NEEDZ this game! Looks cooler than I could of hoped for. Now i really wonder if it will include any of the 4 Robins in some from. They were not even mentioned in passing during the first game, even though Barbara (as Oracle) was in constant contact with Bruce the whole time. So what this Batman universe has a Batgirl but no Robin/Nightwing/Red Robin ect. And i know everyone is absolutely dying to find out if there is a Batwoman lol.

@DanP: Robin is mentioned in the first game. Although it's not stated which Robin it is.

Well, the game isn't coming out until next year. They haven't nailed down anything more specific than that, but given how the first game sold like mad, my guess would be holiday season.  
 
Either way, they're building on top of what they already had done, and they seem to be taking enough time on it so I think the game will be pretty damn good.

Everyone looks awesome...particularly Harley and Catwoman. I never actually played the first game for a long period of time and it's a favorite anyways.

Two things I dream would happen: 
 
1) Please include Batgirl or some other bat female like the Huntress 
 
2) Please just update Batman's costume without the black outer panty brief

@Primmaster64: It might be Jason Todd (as Robin), this would definitely get us fans going, the timeframe in the games allows it to be him, remember Babs was crippled before J-T's death. 
 
It's a possibility with Red Hood being what it is today.

I'm sounding like an ass today, leaving out Batgirl, she could be the dark-horse.

I knew it was going to look good but these are even better than I was expecting and it even looks like Catwoman could help the Dark Knight.
