Batman: Arkham Origins: New screenshots, info, and The Joker returns (or appears for the first time)!
Following up on the impressive 5 minute long debut trailer, WB Games and WB Games Montreal have released a couple of new screenshots for their upcoming new prequel in the Batman Arkham video game series - Batman: Arkham Origins! Highlighting these of course is the very first look at The Joker, as he appears in the game!
Of course, the last time people saw The Clown Prince of Crime was at the 2011 video game smash hit Batman: Arkham City, where the character apparently met his demise after a final titanic battle with the Caped Crusader. His appearance in Arkham Origins isn't surprising given it's a prequel, but he'll be voiced by a different man - namely Troy Baker, since the "Voice of Joker" from Batman: The Animated Series and the previous two Arkham Games, legendary Star Wars actor Mark Hamill, has stated that he isn't returning for the role. It's also been confirmed that Kevin Conroy won't be voicing Batman... Rather it'll be Roger Craig Smith of Sonic The Hedgehog and Assassin's Creed Ezio Auditore fame. Instead, Conroy will be back for a mysterious role... Which we'll find out sooner what it is or later.
In the meantime, check out more worth screenshots via Batman-News, and that AWESOME trailer if you haven't yet!
Batman: Arkham Origins is slated for release in the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U on October 25th!
