Let me be clear, right off the bat (sorry); we have no idea who leaked this gamut of screenshots supposedly from Batman: Arkham City, the follow-up to Rocksteady’s terrific Arkham Asylum. The screenshots were first spotted on an anonymous Flickr account, where they found their way to NeoGAF and, surprisingly enough, our own Arkham City wiki page. Several hours later, the screenshots were taken down from the anonymous account, replaced with a single picture of The Joker.
The point is, these screenshots were not released through what we would call “official channels.” There is every possibility that these pictures featuring Batman, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, The Joker, and Catwoman are an elaborate fake.
But they’re probably not.
And thank goodness for that, because these screenshots look ill. I’ve posted the whole gallery at the end of the article, but here are the most interesting shots of the bunch, complete with a pithy caption.
What do you folks think? What's your favorite part of these new screens? And what do you think they suggest about the kind of game Batman: Arkham City could be?
