The highly anticipated third and final chapter in developer Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham trilogy is now only nine days away from release, and in order to celebrate, WB Games and DC Entertainment have released a new video showing a lot of unexpected people going hands-on with the game.
The video sees the likes of Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”), Wiz Khalifa, Blake Anderson (“Workaholics”), Minka Kelly (“Friday Night Lights”), Kumail Nanjiani (“The X-Files Files”), Breckin Meyer (“Robot Chicken”), Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”), iJustine, Troy Baker (The Last of Us) and Kevin Conroy (the Batman himself) all go hands-on with the upcoming game, and the result is very entertaining. See the video below.
Batman: Arkham Knight is the resolution of the story that began in 2009’s Batman: Arkham Asylum, and continued in 2011’s Batman: Arkham City. The Scarecrow (voiced by John Noble) has returned to Gotham to take his revenge on Batman, and has assembled a gauntlet of some of his most fearsome enemies in an attempt to put him down once and for all. All of this is accentuated by the presence of the Arkham Knight, a paramilitary leader of a massive army in Gotham that answers to the Scarecrow, and whose identity is unknown to Batman and his allies. Batman’s not alone in his fight, though, as allies like Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman all assist him at different points, and this game is notable for introducing the iconic Batmobile into the mechanics of the series.
The game will be released on June 23rd — coincidentally the 26th anniversary of the release of Tim Burton’s original Batman film in 1989 — on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. For more on Arkham Knight, including a full review of the game within a week of its release, keep it locked on GeekNation.
