You really should watch this Batman: Arkham Asylum trailer

Before now, I was somewhat interested in Batman: Arkham Asylum, but after watching the above video, I’m pretty excited. This new trailer details the game’s story, and also shows off a bit of gameplay, presenting Batman both as a stealthy predator and a psycho-pounding pugilist. It all looks rather special.

Obviously, cleverly edited videos can make anything look good, but this video has gone a long way towards making Arkham Asylum a far bigger blip on my radar. It looks like the people behind this venture are really putting some heart into it, which is more than can be said for nearly all licensed games. 

I am down with the clown.
