What’s in a name Bats?

Well last Decem­ber it was announced that Bat­man: Arkham Asy­lum was get­ting a sequel. You could have seen this com­ing from a mile away, as the game was com­mer­cial­ly and crit­icly a suc­cess. Well on July 8th Super­an­nu­a­tion dis­cov­ered that Warn­er Broth­ers had reg­is­tered 15 new domain names for the game giv­ing us an insight to what the sequels sub­ti­tle may be, here is the list.

Not only do some of these look like sub­ti­tles but some also look to be giv­ing clues about the games main plot line. Stopmayorsharp.com looks inter­est­ing since Sharp was the war­den of Arkham and hope­ing to run for may­or in the first title. Good news is, it was con­firmed that Mark Hamill will be return­ing as the clown prince of crime and and can see Kevin Con­roy com­ing back as the dark knight. There has been spec­u­la­tion on the cast of vil­lans this time around and fin­gers are point­ing towards Two Face, and Mr. freeze, just for starters. When more about the game comes down the pipeline you will hear about it as soon as I do. Until then what are some of your picks for the game? Ash­es of Gotham and Rise of Arkham are my picks. If you haven’t seen the trail­er yet that was shown off at Spike T.V.‘s VGAs hit the link.

    Could be worse. They could be mak­ing 10 dif­fer­ent Super­man games. Or more Iron Man.

    Based off the pos­si­ble sub­ti­tles, it sounds like the plot might be sim­i­lar to “No Mans Land”.

    Bat­man is a clas­sic and has been around for such a long time that it reach­es so many peo­ple who want to see what is next. When you have a strong name on a prod­uct like Bat­man, you will be prof­itable! I think that no mat­ter what is up next for Bat­man, it will be a suc­cess. Strong brand names sell!

    I got­ta agree look at star wars… you put any title out and attach star wars to it and it’s almost an instant suc­cess because peo­ple want to see a con­tin­u­a­tion of the sto­ry.
