Eidos and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment led off May with news that Batman: Arkham Asylum needed a bit more time in the development ward. Instead of its anticipated June release, Arkham Asylum would remain remanded until "the end of summer 2009," with additional development time targeted toward ensuring "the highest quality for gamers," according to the publisher.
Today, Eidos attached an exact date to Batman: Arkham Asylum, saying the Rocksteady Studios-developed action adventure will arrive for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on August 25 in North America. Batman: Arkham Asylum's European release will occur three days later on August 28.
Cowritten by Paul Dini, producer of TV's Batman: The Animated Series, the game begins when the Joker breaks out of jail and escapes to Arkham. There, he orchestrates a plan to kill Batman and wreak havoc on Gotham City with the help of myriad accomplices. As an added incentive, PS3 gamers will be able to play as Gotham City's quintessential madman in the game's challenge map modes.
