ManaTank Preview: Batman Arkham City

Let us begin with an introduction. Hello everyone, I’m Dan Curtis, Manatank’s resident Batman obsessive. Since childhood I’ve always held a bond with Mr Wayne and co, expanding from playing with the action figures, enjoying the crazy romps of Adam West and Burt Ward to exploring the brilliantly atmospheric hallways of Arkham Asylum in the best Batman game I ever played. Well, thankfully, there’s soon to be a sequel of that game coming out entitled Batman: Arkham City and I, along with a whole host of other Batman obsessives, really can’t wait to get our mitts on it.

Freeze a Jolly Good Fellow

Mr Freeze is the latest villain to be revealed for Batman Arkham City, and now he’s got his own trailer.

A lot more sadistic than the version portrayed by Arnie in flop film Batman and Robin, Victor Fries is shown in a high-tech cryo suit and proclaims that Batman must bring him Nora, Freeze’s long lost love who is frozen in ice, or otherwise Freeze will kill Batman.

The trailer showcases a few cut scenes involving Freeze and Bats, as well as showcases some of Freeze’s combat abilities, which seem to include his trademark ice gun, and also a shield that repels Batman’s efforts to attack.

In short, this looks like yet another excellent villain addition to what is shaping up to be an adversary packed game. Batman Arkham City is to be released this October and – honestly – I can’t wait.
