Batman: Arkham City Dev Diary Goes into the Recording Booth with Mr J

Batman: Arkham City's Game of the Year Edition grapplehooks its way into stores across the world soon, so to mark the occasion Warner Bros has released this video of the voice cast doing their thing in the booth.

The highlight, of course, is seeing Mark Hamill in action recording audio for Joker. He twists and turns his body and kinda becomes Mr. J in a brilliantly physical performance. They even rewrote chunks of the dialogue to fit his version of the character. Which is pretty badass.

Check out the trailer below. Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition comes to Europe on September 7th and North America on May 29th.

Awesome. I grew up with The Animated Series but this is the first time I've actually seen Mark Hamill doing the voice-over - until now I just couldn't picture it in my mind, it sounds nothing like him!

I definitely agree with the line 'it's the difference between making a good game and a great game' The game was pretty much perfect to me, and a lot of that came down to the voices, sounds and music. I've never really been into batman too much (didn't know of many of the villains before playing) but the Joker was done excellently and is now easily one of my favorite villains, such a complex character and voiced perfectly.

It was really cool seeing him actually act out the lines alongside the scene in the video above!

Anyone looking to find Hamill's best performance as the Joker should check out Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker.

Totally agree. Also, playing through the game with the Batman Beyond Skin makes it like a whole new game for me.
