Batman: Arkham Asylum follow-up revealed at VGAs

And the Spike Video Game Awards show started off with the promised bang — in the initial seconds, a follow-up to Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum was unveiled. Nice, right?

Here’s the scene: a massive present was rolled onto the main stage while large men equipped with smoke machines plodded through the walkways, puffing gas throughout the room. As members of the crowd acted like they came to the wrong awards show, Mark Hammil’s Joker spoke, teasing a sequel before a trailer made it a reality.

The teaser didn’t do much more than reveal a location — it appears this Batman follow-up will be based in some sort of carnival atmosphere. The words “Arkham Asylum has moved” appeared the end of the short  tease before revealing that there’s a Web site you can go to get more (cryptic) information.
