Aside from a teaser trailer last year and plenty of musings regarding the game's cast of characters, not much has been heard about the sequel to the popular Batman: Arkham Asylum title.

However, Warner Bros and DC Entertainment today officially named the sequel, which is now formally known as Batman: Arkham City.

As the title and the trailer last year suggests, the crazies and super-villains of Gotham City have spilled out onto the streets and have made it their new home.
Set inside the fortified walls of the city, Arkham City is set to deliver a brand-new story, a new all-star cast of classic characters and devious villains as well as new enhanced gameplay features that look to "deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight."

The Rocksteady developed title is scheduled for a fall 2011 release.

Good let them take their time with this title that will ensure it is as good if not better than the first one.

Remember they delayed the first one until the fall and it was a 9.9 out of 10 in my humble opinion.

I trust the developers will make it worth the wait.

I kinda like that title. It takes place in Gotham City and it's a sequel to Arkham Asylum.

I like the "Arkham City" title. I don't like the long wait for the game, though. Still, if it helps them get it right, more power to them.

If this game is even half as good as the original I'll still buy it.

As long as they keep what made the last game, this game will be great.

Very good point #7. Most people have forgotten that the first one was delayed a couple of months. It was definitely worth it. Batman: Arkham Asylum deserved the GOTY award it received last year.

I can't wait until fall 2011. The first was too good to wait so much.

Arkham Asylum was one of my fav games of all time. I hope Arkham City turns out the same way.

Yet to play the first game but I really want to. Who cares if they take their time. Splinter Cell Conviction was held back four years or something and that was perfect!

@23 could have done without the black and white though

Anyway, I like the name Arkham City. Although, I am not happy about the release date, but I understand the reason behind it.

Kinda off target here, but how epic was the hallway scene in Arkham Asylum? Where it changes to the past? I wanted to make love to that video game right there. Oh yeah, ARKHAM CITY!! Can't wait.

When i hear the words "Arkham City" I think of an infamous like city...where there are different districts that you can take back by completing missions. I dout they'll have a karma system though. CANT WAIT
