Return to Arkham City in the New Armored Edition for the Wii U

Posted on June 5, 2012 AT 05:10pm

Step into the dark knight’s shoes like never before! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment announced Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition is to be released on the Nintendo Wii U. Developed by Warner Bros. Games Montréal, Armored Edition will deliver the same impactful story and gameplay of the award-winning blockbuster created by Rocksteady Studios, now with a few new gameplay features made possible with the Wii U and its gamepad.

Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition will contain all of the already available content of Batman: Arkham City, including all its downloadable content while introducing even more. The new Battle Armored Tech (B.A.T.) Mode and the new Armored Suits for both Batman and Catwoman will add a new dimension to the gameplay that players will have to consider as they engage the thugs of Arkham in combat.  The upgraded battle suits give the players an additional power-up by allowing them to build kinetic energy during combat that when activated, causes players to enter the B.A.T. mode and dole out more damage than previously possible.

Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition harnesses the power of the Wii U system and the Wii U GamePad with features that allow fans to further immerse themselves in the role of Batman like never before,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.  “WB Games Montréal evolved the incredible hit game by Rocksteady into a truly unique experience on Wii U.”

The Wii U’s gamepad will provide instant access to the wrist-mounted Batcomputer throughout the game, allowing players to use the touch screen to seamlessly select objectives, choose their gadget, track forensic evidence, upgrade their gear, detonate explosive gel, and more, all while remaining immersed in the action. Additionally, all gadgets have been reimagined to utilize the power of the gamepad, offering an unprecedented level of accuracy when using the Batarang and scanning for clues.

Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition is scheduled for release holiday 2012.
