I was worried I'd never see daylight again. That's seriously a concern I had while playing Batman: Arkham City over the holidays this year. We all love comics (obviously) and we all love video games, so the amazing combination of Batman and brutality that was Arkham City had a lot of us spending quite a bit of time sitting inside with our game consoles. This week I'm happy to bring good news for those of you looking to expand the Arkham City experience and possibly breathe some fresh air at the same time. Batman: Arkham City Lockdown is an app available now exclusively for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. What's that, you ask? Take a look:
"Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment today announced that the Batman: Arkham City Lockdown App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App store. The App brings the Batman: Arkham City franchise, one of the most highly acclaimed and best-selling videogame releases of 2011, to the App Store for the first time featuring stunning graphics and original combat gameplay created exclusively for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
"Developed by NetherRealm Studios, creators of Mortal Kombat, Batman: Arkham City Lockdown features several of Gotham City's most dangerous criminals, including The Joker, Two-Face and Solomon Grundy, as well as i0S-exclusive character Deathstroke, and engages players in one-on-one combat as they seek justice in a variety of Arkham City environments."
So not only does this game give me Deathstroke(!) and Solomon Grundy but also all-new environments and the ability to take it with me wherever I want to go? I'm going to stop typing this All Access right now and download the App. Seriously. I'll see you all next week. Go play Batman: Arkham City Lockdown. Deathstroke!!!
