Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 Named “Arkham City”

Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 has an official title: Batman: Arkham City, as hinted at in the trailer that aired during Spike TV’s Videogame Awards.

The revelation comes from the upcoming cover story on Game Informer, which spoils:

“Developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security ‘home’ for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds.”

“Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.”

One of the intriguing aspects is the Game Informer cover showing off Catwoman, who seems to be paired with the Dark Knight. Could she be a playable co-op player? There had been little info about the game since it was announced.
