wb games montrealStep into the action like never before! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have announced Batman: Arkham City™ Armored Edition for the Wii U™ system from Nintendo. Developed by WB Games Montréal, the game delivers the same impactful story and gameplay of the award-winning blockbuster created by Rocksteady Studios, now with enhanced gameplay features made possible with the Wii U and the new controller.  The game is scheduled for release holiday 2012.

Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition contains all of the content from Batman: Arkham City, including all available downloadable content, and introduces Battle Armored Tech (B.A.T.) Mode and the new Armored Suit for both Batman and Catwoman.  Fans can become the Dark Knight like never before with the upgraded battle suit that gives players an additional power-up by allowing them to build kinetic energy during combat.  When activated, players enter B.A.T. mode and dole out more damage than previously possible.

“Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition harnesses the power of the Wii U and the new controller with features that allow fans to further immerse themselves in the role of Batman like never before,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.  “WB Games Montréal has created a truly unique experience that sets itself apart from other games in the category.”

“We’re excited to unveil all the new gameplay features that we’ve been able to put into Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition because of the Wii U and the new controller,” said Reid Schneider, Vice President and Executive Producer, WB Games Montréal. “Players now have the power of the Batcomputer and gadgets in the palm of their hands and can enjoy the game without ever leaving the action on the screen.”

The Wii U new controller provides instant access to the wrist-mounted Batcomputer throughout the game, allowing players to use the touch screen to seamlessly select objectives, choose their gadget, track evidence, upgrade their gear, set and detonate bombs, and more, all without exiting the game. Additionally, all gadgets have been reimagined to utilize the power of the new controller, offering an unprecedented level of accuracy when using the Batarang and scanning for clues.

Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players flying through the expansive Arkham City – five times larger than the game world in Batman: Arkham Asylum – the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Featuring an incredible Rogues Gallery of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals including Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Mr. Freeze and many others, the game allows players to genuinely experience what it feels like to be The Dark Knight delivering justice on the streets of Gotham City.
