In the age of remasters, the industry has set to give newcoming players a second chance to experience the classics that possibly only returning players would have played through. Last year, prior to Arkham Knight’s launch, many were baffled by the fact thata remaster of its predecessors hadn’t released before the impending release of the trilogy’s finale, but just over a year later players are finally able to experience Arkham Asylum and Arkham City on current-generation consoles.
For newcoming players, I’ll provide a brief summary of both games before we move on. In Batman: Arkham Asylum, it initially seems like another day on the job as Batman takes the Joker to Arkham Asylum after foiling yet another of his plans. However, as the two arrive it seems the Joker has orchestrated his most deliberate escape plan yet, which has Batman fight through the Asylum all night as he is confronted by the Joker and some of his greatest foes.
In Batman: Arkham City, the game has changed significantly. Set in the much larger open world of Arkham City, a large super-prison built in the heart of Gotham, Hugo Strange has set plans in motion to take care of Batman once and for all. Aided by allies such as Catwoman, Batman must foil Strange’s plans before it’s too late, though not everything is quite what it seems.
