New(ish) Batman: Arkham City screens show kickass weapon takedowns and Hugo Strange

We loved Batman’s ass-kicking, slow-mo takedowns in Arkham Asylum. Hell, we just plain adored the whole fighting system. So the good news is, combat looks like it will be even more amazitron in Arkham City, with new screens revealing Bats nailing multiple enemies at once. Oh, and totally using a ripped-off door to deal out some spandex-sponsored justice.


Above: Who needs a Batarang when you've got the modern wonder of a metal door?


Above: Batman disarms a no gooder with his subtle wit and charm


Above: Triple takedowns, you say? Hells yes, we say


Above: This shot was released last week. So we're late, but we just had to give props to the evil beard

    cant wait to administer some justice with doors. also, i like how they rendered some more diverse enemies this time around. Shirtless and shirt covered were some limited options

    I love the one where he uses a door to take the guy down.

    What's next? Quintuple takedowns? Two kicks, two punches, and a headbutt simultaneously. Or Sextuple takedowns, two punches two kicks a headbutt and... umm... butt?

    Is it just me or does Hugo Strange look younger than in the last trailer? Door takedowns FTW
