Forums - Gaming Discussion - Batman Arkham sequel could be 50s prequel

Tagged games:

New, highly stylized title is being developed as a prequel that revolves around Batman's first meeting with the Joker. It's based on the Silver Age of DC's comicbooks from the 1950s when the Caped Crusader teamed with other heroes like Superman and founded the Justice League of America.

Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill voiced Batman and the Joker, respectively, in the previous games. Hamill has already said he won't be back to play the villain in the next game.

This would be pretty cool. It would show that they are ready to change things unlike Sony Santa Monica.

If it follows the same Metroid feel of the last game (open-closed world + upgrades) then I'm all over it!

I can't even begin to think what funny camp things could be added with Silver-age batman, bat-baby anyone?



Sounds crap.

Batman Arkham Asylum did as well, and became one of the best of this generation



Arkham Asylum never sounded crap. Ever.

Ascension is the 6th(?) GoW and looks just like every other GoW.

if you just go by appearence yes. They are trying quite a few new things with the game from what we have seen already. This isn't even being 'creative' ..they are just using a different already existing comic book line.

It deserves tons more games. They would have to do this because in Arkham city they had so many characters it seemed like there would be nothing left to do. I say batman with marvel beating the crap out of spiderman.

 

Oh wait this is about God of War, Sony Santa Monica works on tons of projects. It will suck tough if GOW is the same I might skip it. Beat-em-ups get old fast.
