Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition shown for Wii U

Today at Nintendo's E3 2012 press briefing, Warner Bros Interactive and Rocksteady showed off the new edition of Batman: Arkham City, subtitled "Armored Edition." It features the touch screen for gadgets, along with armored Batman and Catwoman suits exclusive to the Wii U version. WB Games Montreal is developing the port.

The new armor isn't just to look pretty, though. Instead, Batman's new armor stores up kinetic energy and is then used as a power-up to deal more damage in "BAT mode." The gameplay video also showed the Batarang being steered with the controller, and placing explosives with the smaller screen appearing in Detective Vision.
