Batman: Arkham Collection Listed Again By Retailer
Dark Knight strikes again.
Batman: Return to Arkham has been listed by the Italian arm of video game retailer GameStop. The listing states the title will feature the first two game's in Rocksteady's series, along with all DLC for both.
Although neither developer Rocksteady nor publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have officially announced a Batman: Arkham Collection, this is the third instance of it being listed by a retailer, giving further credibility to its existence.
On April 18, a GameStop employee leaked images of an unannounced "Batman HD Collection." The collection was also mentioned prior to this, on March 23. These also stated the package would include the first two games with all the DLC.
The first two Batman Arkham games gained near-unanimous praise from critics. GameSpot's Arkham Asylum review said:"everything about this game--the impressive visuals, stirring soundtrack, superb voice acting, fiendish puzzles, hard-hitting combat--feels like it has been lovingly crafted by a development team that's both knowledgeable and passionate about the source material."
Arkham City was also rated highly: "From the speedy exhilaration of soaring high above the streets to the atmospheric thrill of discovering long-forgotten secrets in the tunnels below Gotham, this is an unforgettable adventure that will keep you coming back to the cape and cowl long after you've seen the credits roll."
The latest Batman console game was Batman: Arkham Knight, which came out in June 2015 and has reportedly sold 5 million copies. It was also developed by Rocksteady, and is apparently the last Batman game the UK studio plans to make for the foreseeable future.
