Batman: Arkham Asylum CE Details, Batarang Included
We've been hearing nothing but good things about Batman: Arkham Asylum and if you're a huge Bruce Wayne fan, you may have to pony up the cash come June...
As Kotaku reports, there's going to be a sweet Collectors Edition available on store shelves come June 9, when Arkham Asylum launches. Obviously, this isn't your everyday, run-of-the-mill CE; this bad boy not only includes a DC Custom Encyclopedia and the first round of downloadable content, but also...a 12" Batarang! Yeah, that's right; you'll get your very own Bat-specific weapon, along with the now-requisite Behind the Scenes DVD and official soundtrack. Although GameStop hasn't confirmed all these nifty items just yet, you can always go ahead and pre-order it if you're so inclined. It will retail for $99.99, so in order to be considered a good deal, you have to believe that all the extra goodies are worth at least $40. We figure the hardcore fans might go for it, but it seems a little extravagant for those who merely say, "yeah, the movies were good and I think I'm interested in this game." That's just not gung-ho enough. Chances are, for a hundred bucks, you'd want a full Batman suit, complete with Kevlar breastplate and utility belt, huh?
Well, either way, it sounds like a nifty package. Just don't go throwing that Batarang at the dude who steals a woman's purse...not only will you look quite foolish, but you'll accomplish nothing (even if you miraculously hit him). Just find a cop, m'kay?
