We now know what day we’ll be able to play the sequel to the best Superhero game ever made. Square Enix has announced that Batman: Arkham City will hit stores on October 18th. We know it was due in the fall, but having a set date now makes the wait a little easier.
Arkham City is the sequel to Arkham Asylum, which was by far the best Batman game ever and easily one of the best comic book-based games of all time. The sequel is now set in the city of Gotham where Arkham’s inhabitants are running wild. In addition to returning characters such as The Joker (which will be the final time Mark Hamill plays him), the sequel will feature Two Face, Catwoman, Hugo Strange, and most likely Mr. Freeze.
As with the original, it’ll release on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
