Batman Arkham City Armored Edition announced for Wii U

At last year's Nintendo press conference, it was announced that huge third party titles like Batman Arkham City would come to Wii U. This year Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment gave a few more details on the Wii U Specific features. Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition will have full support of the Wii U GamePad, taking advantage of the touchscreen and motion controls.

The Armored Edition will have a few gameplay expansions. A new B.A.T. mode increases Batman's damage and abilities as he builds a rage-type meter as he successfully connects combos. The inventory will be accessible through the GamePad's touchscreen which can also be used in gameplay functions like setting off Batman's explosive gel. Remote control Batarangs can also be guided using the motion sensors of the controller.

    I LOVED Arkham City, but I don't think some new features are enough to justify another $60 purchase.

    Why pay 60 dollars to replay a game that exists? add a few new features and BAM! Money. C.....o.......d..... (looks around back and forth) o.o

    I've been planning on getting Arkham Asylum this week. If I like it this may be the sequel version I'll be buying.

    Just saw Geoff get Reggie all pissed over this game. "No!!! It is NOT the same Batman game!!!"

    A rage meter for Batman? That's so wrong. Batman is the super hero without superpowers. Giving him a rage meter is like giving him a super power. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of being Batman?

    From what I gathered, it's some sort of technology built into his suit that stores kinetic energy and releases it at a time of his choosing. It's just another technology that Batman invented, not really a superpower per se.
