Batman: Return of the Joker (known in Japan as Dynamite Batman) is a 2D action platformer developed and published by SunSoft for the Nintendo Entertainment System on December 20, 1991. Sequel to the NES version of Batman: The Video Game, players regain control of Batman as he travels through the underworld of Gotham City to stop the plans of The Joker.
Unlike the previous game, which allowed players to switch between different weapons and gadgets, the game features only one single gun that Batman can collect powerups (similar to Contra) for.
The game was remade for the Genesis in 1992, titled Batman: Revenge of the Joker (developed by Ringler). A different game (with the same name as the original) was released for the Game Boy also in 1992 (developed by SunSoft).
