The official Wii U box art for Batman: Arkham City has been released featuring the caped crusader looking all cool and kick-butt for Nintendo's upcoming new-generation home console. In addition to releasing the official box art, Warner Bros., has also sent out a brand new Catwoman render to give gamers a small taste of what the fatal feline will look like in the game.
Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition is a basically a retread of Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham City which released last year for home consoles and PC. The Wii U version of the game will include additional combat mechanics, new gadgets, the use of the WiiPad to perform specific in-game actions as well as an all new armored-up Batman to run around Arkham City with. Check it out below.
A lot of gamers have been wondering why the game would even be worth the purchase if they already bought it the first time around for either PC, PS3 or Xbox 360. Well, one answer to that is the use of the Wii's touchscreen for a versatile new way to play the game. If that doesn't really seem like it's worth the warrant of a purchase, there's also the inclusion of ALL of the game's previously released DLC packs jam-packed into a one-time purchase retail package.
You have to admit, paying once for a game and getting all the DLC included (on the disc) probably looks mighty tempting to a lot of gamers. You don't have to worry about disc-locked content or paying full price for the game and then later realizing some vital content is missing or absent or requires an extra $6.99 to access the rest of the game...or the ending.
There's also an additional mode for Arkham City Armored Edition called the B.A.T. Mode or the Battle Armored Tech Mode. I guess this is all being jam packed into the game to try to convince newcomers that it's worth a full retail purchase.
You can look for Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition to launch this holiday season alongside the Wii U. You can check out that Catwoman render below.
