20130520-batmanao-004Bat-fans have a lot to be excited about this week. First off, Kevin Conroy started dropping hints of his role in another Arkham based game, though he will not be in Batman: Arkham Origins. Then, this glorious CG trailer dropped showing Bats kicking all kinds of arse.

While CG trailers are hardly anything to get over-hyped about, as gamers have had their hearts broken before, *cough cough* Killzone, the look and tone is in keeping with original franchise developer Rocksteady’s vision and I have to admit, I’m pretty amped about Batman: Arkham Origins.

I was really hoping for a look at Joker’s origins as Red Hood. We’ll have to wait and see

Batman was a huge fan of Assassin’s Creed and played it every change he could

I’ll reserve judgement until I see gameplay or get a hands-on, likely to be in the next few weeks with E3 just around the corner. Until then, this trailer and the above accompanying screens will keep me going, and salivating.
