In only a couple of weeks, the next installment of the Batman Arkham series will hit stores and we can’t wait. Well NYCC hosted a great panel for the game and it featured Eric Holmes (Creative Director for WB Games Montreal), Erin Piepergerdes (Producer for NetherRealm Studios), Troy Baker (voice actor of The Joker), and Roger Craig Smith (voice actor of Batman). Troy Baker even did his awesome Joker voice and spewed lines from The Killing Joke! The fifth assassin was announced during the panel as well, Electrocutioner, who will be voiced by Steve Blum (Cowboy Bebop). Three more to go! Check out his intro trailer below!
Also be on the look out for a mobile game coming soon from WB Games Montreal will be teaming up once again with NetherRealm Studios, who gave us Injustice: Gods Among Us, to bring the game to the iOS platform sometime later this year!
