Batman means fucking business. In the just-unveiled box art for Arkham City, our hero is rendered mostly in shades of simple blacks, whites and greys… except for his crime-fighting fists, of course, which are appropriately splattered with bright red blood. Take a look:
If you’ve been paying attention to Batman: Arkham City since the sequel was first announced last year, you’ll recognize this visual motif immediately – similar images have been used on magazine covers and are available as wallpapers on the game’s official website.
What do you think about this box art? I admire the starkness, and can appreciate it from a design point of view, but I would prefer that Arkham City’s cover complemented the original game’s look rather than an issue of Game Informer. These two are going to look sort of strange sitting next to each other, aren’t they?
