    I thought that also. Unless they have 2 teams and one is working on TMNT and one is going to work on this new Batman. Thats just speculation and haven't heard any more about TMNT since it foirst surfaced some months ago.

    That sounds awesome. I guess now I have to see the digital comics to see how the AC saga ends.

    While I'm not going to complain -- another Batman/Rocksteady game is something to always be grateful for -- but I really hope this "prequel" concept isn't being done solely to keep you-know-who around as the main antagonist. I really want to see the story move forward from Arkham City dealing with Batman's psychological fallout, how the criminals of Gotham continue to scramble for dominance, the Hush storyline, Azrael, etc.

    I think -- or hope, at least -- that the game should be set post-Arkham City, but if they really want to incorporate a prequel storyline, then utilize flashback moments for Batman. For anyone that hasn't played the game, I'll just write below:

    So if this new Batman game will be dealing with the Joker again, will he be voiced by a different actor as Mark Hamill said that he isn't voicing the Joker anymore? Can't really imagine anyone else but Hamill voicing the Joker.

    I'm hoping for some more innovation. I don't have a problem with sequels and prequels so long as they can keep the series fresh. Arkham City accomplished this, but the bar will have to be raised again if they want to succeed.

    Freeflow combat and Batman-stealth only stays fresh for oh so long...

    Jack Stop being a buzz-kill Of course you are right, but I am sure Rocksteady knows this as well. I am sure something will be done to keep the game fresh and feeling new.

    I read that they were to include some JLA characters in this game, which is all very well, but it will pretty much undo the entire 'Batman works alone' thing that the Arkham series has built up *except for tiny bits from Alfred, Robin and Catwoman*. They are only including these characters 'cause WB has 'em by the balls and is telling them to, which kind of takes away from Rocksteady's visions don't you think? If they are being forced to include characters that they probably wouldn't have if they had been given free roam of the universe, they might not put as much love into it...

    I'm one of the few that have not bought into these two games yet... but perhaps I need to here soon. The prequel idea sounds great imho, and if they're working on a TMNT game.... COWABUNGA!

    I'm hoping this isn't the case. Personally I preferred if they continued the Arkham universe and throughout the game have flashbacks that involve the Joker rather than just have a whole game that revolved around their first encounter.

    They're suppose to include other characters from the original Justice League in the game as well. This is a time when Batman first started to work alongside other heroes like Superman and the Justice League was formed with the original seven members.

    They plan on releasing the game sometime in 2013 I read and a Justice League movie is suppose to come out sometime in 2014 which is why they're going with this move. Regardless though, Rocksteady knows what they're doing and the game should turn out to be awesome.
