Concerned that the inclusion of superheroes might reduce the traditional MK diet of gore, gore and, for you sir, an extra side order of gore? Don’t be. Beheadings and dismemberings are out – after all, who wants to hack Superman’s head off? (Don’t answer that, Lex) But! There’s still plenty of blood spurting from Midways eight Mortal Kombat game. Perhaps the best example of this is the Joker’s fatality, available once you have pounded your foe enough to earn the famous ‘finish him’ prompt.
Developers of Batman games often forget that, above all, the Caped Crusader is a detective. To reflect this, Arkham will see you investigating the asylum and using forensics tools to track down the Joker. Think Condemned 2. You’ll be able to use batarangs in combat (controlled from the first person) and access a mini batcave filled with high-tech goodies.
