Arkham City has New Game +

Batman won’t be hanging up the costume once Arkham City is over and neither should you put down the controller, as Rocksteady have announced a New Game + mode for the upcoming action title, Joystiq reports.

While the Dark Knight will retain all his XP and gadgets for the second go around, enemies and boss fights are promised to be harder, and the world will be modified to mix things up a bit. Fights will no longer come with the aid of a counter icon, meaning you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for incoming attacks to stop, much like in Arkham Asylum‘s hardest difficulty.

Yet another reason to look forward to the game’s release on October 18 in the US and October 21 in the EU, then.
