Rocksteady Studios is already hard at work on the sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum (I hope to hell they don’t just call it “Batman: Arkham Asylum 2”). But thanks to a listing unearthed by a Joystiq tipster from the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) -- yeah, I don’t get it either; I thought PEGI would be assuming game rating duties in the UK -- it looks like a Game of the Year edition of Arkham Asylum is on the way. And why not? It was certainly a nominee for Destructoid’s Game of the Year 2009.

GOTY versions tend to collect previously released extra content into one simple, regular- or low-priced package, and while the BBFC listing mentions nothing specific, Joystiq speculates that an Arkham Asylum GOTY edition would include:

But if this GOTY edition sells for $59.99, it sure wouldn’t be a very good deal, since only one of those pieces of content (“Crime Alley”) technically cost money. (On the other hand, consider something like the Fallout 3 GOTY Edition, which included a full $50 worth of DLC on the $60 disc). We’ll have to wait to hear back from Warner Bros. and Eidos to find out what the deal is. In any case, if the price is right, is this something you might be interested in?

[Update: How could I forget? Commenter ‘z0mbiew0lf’ mentions The Joker, who was, of course, playable in the Challenge Maps exclusively on the PlayStation 3. The GOTY Edition could include that, too! -Samit]

Fight against a giant Scarecrow in Arkham Knight's exclusive PS4 DLC

Scarecrow's reveal during the Sony E3 2014 press conference was a highlight. Woke me right up, it did. Batman: Arkham Knight was yet another one of those games to (annoyingly) have system-exclusive content -- in this specific...more

Mega64 gives Batman a much-needed makeover

What do you do when you explore all available paths with a character, and end up with nowhere to go? You reboot it, of course! Is that the position that Batman's in? Mega64 thinks so. It took the unsolicited initiative and reinvented the Caped Crusader. Except now he has a raincoat instead of a cape. Also, he's a Puerto Rican guy now.more

Microsoft Store lists Batman: Arkham Knight for February

[Update: It seems that they've changed the date listing to read "Not announced" since this morning. Tease.]  We found out that Batman: Arkham Knight was delayed right before E3, and last week we learned that the wait mig...more
