Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have announced that the followup to Batman: Arkham Asylum now has an official name – Batman: Arkham City. The game will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in the Autumn of 2011.

Developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.

Well, now I only need to get an Xbox, and buy and play Batman: Arkham Asylum, within the year. No problem!

    Get the PS3 version instead. All the stuff the 360 version has, PLUS the ability to play as the Joker.

      Truth. The PS3 version had more content. (which makes me thing that Xbox is going to try extra hard to have more content this time around.)

        PC. Even more content, earlier releases and you don’t have to pay for the updates.

    Batman AA was the best mainstream comicbook hero videogame ever made. I sincerely can’t wait for the sequel. Is Paul Dini confirmed as writer yet?

      I don’t know, the Batman game for the 8-bit Nintendo was pretty damn awesome, well the first 3 levels and then I’d get stuck and throw my controller away in disgust. But you know what I mean.
