Holy sequel Batman!

We’re already quivering in anticipation for the latest bat-video game title - Batman: Arkham City - so much so that every five minutes we’re looking outside our office window for the bat sign that tells us there is new info on the game coming. Just now our bat-phone gave a decisive chime to let us know that Rocksteady have been talking about the hotly anticipated bat-sequel. So, here are a selection of quotes that should get your bat-juices flowing.

‘Gamers who played Batman: Arkham Asylum will know how dedicated we are as a studio to injecting an incredible amount of detail into every environment we build,’ said Sefton Hill to Official PlayStation Magazine. ‘It is this attention to detail that gives our games the deep and intense atmosphere that so many players have found so compelling, and so we have had to seriously scale up our art team in order to bring the same level of detail to Arkham City, which is about 4-5 times bigger than Arkham Asylum.

‘Looking at the raw amount of animations in this sequel, Batman's moves have doubled in number and we also wanted to create an authentic sense of continuity from the end of Batman: Arkham Asylum, so the player will begin Batman: Arkham City with many of the same core gadgets that they unlocked in the first game.

‘Batman's cutting-edge technology is a significant part of the game, so gamers can expect to see a range of totally new gadgets, as well as evolved new features built into those tools that they already enjoyed in Batman: Arkham Asylum.’
