Arguably one of the most ambitious remasters announced this generation so far have been the Batman: Arkham remasters- announced as Batman: Return to Arkham, the remasters redo Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City in Unreal Engine 4, and then package them together neatly into one bundle.
It’s a good collection, and the chance to play two excellent games again would have been greatly appreciated- but the problem was that Return to Arkham had been abruptly delayed earlier this year, with no new release date given. Warner Bros. insisted that the delay was because developer Virtuous needed more time to polish their work and deliver a polished Batman experience, but the abrupt nature, and the lack of any new release window, made people wonder if we were ever actually going to see the collection again.
Well, we are. It’s launching in just over a month. And we have a new comparison trailer showing us just how extensively the games have been redone for you to see below, too. It’s just a pity that they forewent the inclusion of Arkham Origins still.
