Rocksteady's 2009 title Batman: Arkham Asylum did a lot for the comic book franchise. It proved Batman could star in a great game, although he's had brushes with this in the past; it showed us that there were other people in the world that were geeky enough to care about all of Batman's "rogues gallery," even the goofy ones; and it messed The Joker up real bad.
Need evidence for the last one? Warner Bros. Interactive has done just that with a small collection of fresh screens for the sequel, Batman: Arkham City.
Batman's latest adventure launches later this year for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Joker's dermatologist appointments are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
