Pretty much everyone that played the first Batman: Arkham Asylum game really dug it.  It's pretty much a no-brainer that a sequel has to be made.  At the beginning of the 2009 Spike VGAs, a teaser trailer was shown for the sequel.
 
You'll notice that the Joker appears a little under the weather.  That can't be a good sign.  I know when I get sick, I'm a little cranky.  Try to imagine a cranky Joker...
 
A release date or the platforms it'll be on hasn't been announced.  I think it's a good move not to have a firm release date since the first game had some delays.  I say it's better to have delays and end up with a better game.  There is a website that currently doesn't have much information, www.ArkhamHasMoved.com.
 
 
 
   
 
(Yes, I'm aware NightFang posted this trailer in his blog. I wanted to make sure it was seen in the news).  Did you play the first game?  Who would you like to see pop up in the sequel? 
 
Update: I'm "borrowing" this video from GiantBomb to play it on our player.

I haven't even gotten to beat the first one yet... for x-mas I'm getting it with a PS3, so I'll play it, then soon I can play the sequel! Who knew? Procrastination DOES work! :D

Never finished the first one, why did my older bro have to take his PS3 back, WHYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#7 Posted by Grendel (574 posts) - - Show Bio

Firefly (Among many other characters) needs to make an appearance. And whoever did the Riddler voice was awesome, give him an actual role.

#8 Posted by RedK (2541 posts) - - Show Bio

Yea i agree with Grendel the Riddler should have a role in this one

#9 Posted by Omega Ray Jay (8306 posts) - - Show Bio

Jesus, i still need to pick up the first one

@Grendel:
Second that. 
I like firefly,i also want to see Mr.freeze and Two face. Isent the reason why joker is sick was that in the last fight in the game joker injected himself with an experemental serum that Bane use and several other inmates

Very cool!  Joker on a drip??

I have been curious for a while how they were going to do a sequel to this game. Mainly, because of the setting. I don't think you could do Arkham twice. Yes, there is all of Gotham City, but how could they do that and still give you the feeling of isolation? It appears like they are moving it to Gotham.

#16 Posted by Citizen 14 (1223 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes!
I loved the first one, 
Cannot wait!

#17 Posted by crazed_h3ro (1006 posts) - - Show Bio

Gotham is joker's new playground  ^_^
#18 Posted by Sparda (15795 posts) - - Show Bio

Really hyped for the sequel, I must say. I played the first one to death (beat it on Normal with 100% and then did it again on Hard, and I played the DLC) so I'll definitely be picking this up right away when it drops.

#19 Posted by jedd (73 posts) - - Show Bio

wonder if poison ivy will be back. hopefully she teams up with harley and maybe also catwoman
#20 Posted by Harvester427 (22 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm pretty sure Two Face is going to make an appearance. The poster of Uncle Sam on the web page has been Two Face-ized.

yes i loved the first one

all of those Uncle Sam looking posters had Two Face on them...
#23 Posted by Sparda (15795 posts) - - Show Bio

No Man's Land is the feel I'm getting, with gang wars going off left and right between the Arkham Inmates. Also:
 
Uncle Sam poster = Two Face?
Iceberg Lounge = Penguin
Sionis sign = Black Mask?
 
and Ra's Al Ghul's missing corpse from the first game really makes me hope he's in this one.

I hope it's not going to be MGS for retards.
 
..Again.

Considering how MGS has an extremely small focus (if any) on hand-to-hand combat, that statement is a very strange one to me. I mean, I could see where you were taking that if AA was all stealth all the time, but it wasn't.

I'm glad that they are making a second one, loved the first one, I just wonder is people will like the fact that it's the same villain? But from what it looks like, we may have an even bigger playground to glide around in and beat the crap out of those who stalk the night...in other words, this looks good.

I hope Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) appears.
 
The first game is awesome so I can't wait for this.
 
Now that I think about it the thug being thrown out of the building may have been because of Batman.

Boring trailer. It looked good though. Didn't take them long to come up with a sequel.

I was thinking that last part of your statment as well...which worries me a little about how the game will actually turn out.

Well, ever since Arkham Asylum's sequel was being discussed, I hoped it would be based on No Man's Land. It would justify isolating the area while the story and setting would justify free roam across Gotham

You probable will, I just saw a sign that said "Sionis", as in Roman Sionis, the Black Mask!

MUA2 is my only game on my Ps3 it is on weird connection  and i am getting a ethernet cable tomorrow and i am getting the first game and  then this

#37 Posted by Red Rum (390 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd also like to see new skills and tools/weapons. Or the ability to explore Gotham City. Or maybe a fight against Clayface and/or Mr. Freeze.

#38 Posted by FoxxFireArt (3612 posts) - - Show Bio
@Croaker: I was partly hoping that it would be set in Wayne Manor. Perhaps there is ahuge party and Wayne Manor and a bunch of villains burst in to take everyone hostage. It could of been an interesting concept to work in a risk of his identity being revealed.

#44 Posted by Rocketeer (16 posts) - - Show Bio

Sionis definitely means Black Mask (Roman Sionis) will be in the game. Should rock.

#45 Posted by goldenkey (3033 posts) - - Show Bio

you know this just pissed me off so much.  Hoping that I win my fantasy football league so then I can go and buy a PS3.  I have a friend that says I can use his GTA 4, Batman and about 3 other games he's done with so Im psyched. 

#46 Posted by havco (91 posts) - - Show Bio

You guys think that Batman probably be getting some back up in Gotham City you know like: Batgirl, Nightwing or heck Blue Bettle. not saying that batman can't handle all of them, am just saying be kind of cool having some back up.    

#47 Posted by Grendel (574 posts) - - Show Bio
@Deviant:  I would hope so, but there was also early signs of Two-face being in the original and he wasn't. It may just be a throwaway reference.
#48 Posted by Deadlol (69 posts) - - Show Bio

I am curious to see how they're gonna pull this one off with no real Arkham Asylum and eighty year-old Joker. I also noticed "Sionis" on the wall in the trailer and the "Two-Face-ized" Uncle Sam. Two-Face and Black Mask would be great villains for this one. Hopefully we may get to actually fight Killer Croc, either way I'm very excited for this game.  

#49 Posted by Emperor Gonzo Noir (19148 posts) - - Show Bio

man after the sh!t pounding he took last time he looks more like TDK Joker
#50 Posted by wadey wilson (52 posts) - - Show Bio

OMFG!!! I think that the only bad thing about the first one was the number of supervillains, but now... I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just hope that the riddles, and mark hamill and kevin conroy, and the super awesome gamplay return
