Holy Arkham Asylum teaser, Batman!

Many Batman enthusiasts were a bit miffed when it was revealed The Dark Knight might not be getting a proper videogame adaptation after all. Their dismay was somewhat dulled with the announcement of Arkham Asylum, a rather unexpected move for the franchise, but one that is looking better with each passing reveal. In the first true Arkham teaser we are privy to some very creepy-looking environments that we can’t wait to explore. Sporting an aesthetic that might be more at home in a BioShock sequel, the new Batman romp already promises to be an experience not at all typical of the superhero genre. The title is still awaiting a release announcement, and we can’t help but think the evil laugh at the conclusion of the video is really just an Eidos associate enjoying our rabid anticipation.
