Like most fans of the Caped Crusader, I’ve been following the development of Batman: Arkham Asylum since its announcement last year. So far, everything about the game has looked promising, from the Paul Dini-scribed plot to Mark Hamill’s excellent work as the voice of the Joker. When I caught this new trailer and a handful of screenshots for the game this morning, it made me pretty excited for the game’s May release date. Hit the jump for the trailer and more screens.
Mark Hamill. Joker. Sold. I know he’s not the only voice from the animated series to make an appearance in this game, but for me he’s the most exciting. Now all I need to see is some footage with Harley Quinn. Come on, if the Joker’s there, she’s got to be there. Hopefully we’ll find out more soon. Like with most games based on franchises I love, I’m going to proceed with cautious optimism, since there’s still a chance this whole thing could go horribly wrong. We’ll have to wait a few more months to find out. In the meantime, you can look at some more screenshots!
