One of the major third party titles launching with the Wii U this holiday season was revealed at Nintendo's E3 press conference this morning, with Rocksteady Studios announcing a tailored version of their acclaimed Batman: Arkham City, subtitled Armored Edition.
Batman: Arkham City is based on DC Comics' core Batman license and is set in Arkham City, 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.
The armored edition name refers to the new "upgraded battle suit" that introduces a new game-mechanic whereby players accumulate energy during combat to use for special attacks and sensing.
