Is Batman teaming up with the Joker in the next game?
This video makes it look like the Dark Knight is getting a helping hand from the Joker in the latest adventure from Rocksteady. You can even do team moves where the Joke gives Batman a boost or Batman hurls Joker towards an inmate for a take down.
There's no official news on this yet, and this trailer was from a French site, so who knows.
I'm speculating that this is a whole different game mode, similar to the challenge mode in the first game, where you can co-op through it. I doubt this will happen in the main story. What do you think? Will we see other team-ups in this mode?

Looks like you'll be able to use Catwoman at least part of the time in this game. Co-op anyone? -UPDATED- official source for trailer.
Note: This video isn't up on the official youtube page yet, so here's some jimmy ass rip of the gamespot version. Enjoy it while it's up. I'll post the official if Rocksteady/Warner ever get around to updating their youtube page.
Robin will be playable in the challenge maps if you pre-order from Best Buy.
The rumors are true, sort of... Robin will only be playable in the challenge maps, but he will have his own unique style and equipment. No word on what, if anything, will be available from other retailers such as Amazon or Gamestop.
From Best Buy's website:
While supplies last, pre-order the game for an exclusive downloadable Robin character. Robin is a fully playable character in the new and improved challenge mode in Batman: Arkham City. The Tim Drake Robin pack is available exclusively to fans who pre-order the game from Best Buy on Xbox 360, PC and PS3. Robin comes complete with his own unique gadgets and special moves, and will be playable in all challenge maps in the game, as well as two additional challenge maps that are included with the pack: Black Mask Hideout and Freight Train Escape. The pack will also contain a bonus Red Robin character skin.
So there it is... Another pre-order bonus... Anyone getting this from Best Buy just because of Robin?
Looks like somebody from the first game is back, and wants their revenge.
What do you guys think? Are you hyped for this game? Let us know in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy.

I'm so excited for this game already, these videos don't really do much for me anymore. Less then a month away, Jimmy!

Gameinformer reveals their April cover, and we finally know what Rocksteady's been up to for the last couple of years.
Another Arkham game? Yup. But this time Rocksteady's back... also, drivable Batmobile. Oh, and did I mention, no last gen support... PC, PS4, and Xbox One only.
Check out the cover art:
In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever.
Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady's uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.
Be The Batman.
And another surprise... It's due out this year. There's a trailer up too... it's just CG, no actual game play. It does show the roster of villians and the Batmobile though, and pre-order bonus of playing as Harley Quinn (in the challange maps).

Don't expect too much gameplay in your gameplay videos these days...
Cool video, would've liked to see some acutal gameplay in a video with "gameplay" in the title though.
