Sexy new Batman: Arkham City screens show knuckle-popping and a potential bat-face-plant

What's that you say? I am so perceptive it hurts? Well, after a compliment like that I'd be a solid gold bastard if I didn't give you some.

Well, what do we have here then? Why,a selection offine imagery depicting the Batman amid some good-natured hijinx about town, variously beating down goons with a new, hand-crushing melee move, showing off some tightrope antics, and plain old just having a whale of a time with some good old-fashioned swooping and leaping. Oh Batman, you are a card.

Just one worry. That headfirst plummet move is going to require careful aim or a seriously reinforced faceplace in that cowl. Otherwise his secret identity is going to bleeding obvious, Bruce Wayne being the only other man in Gotham with a two-dimensional fizzog.

So, only one question remains. Are you excited about Arkham City? Or are you trouser-troublingly excited?

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
