    The following is a video showing Batman Arkham City: Armoured Edition's new features being played on the Wii U's game pad. Some the new features in the being able to ascertain the location of enemies via sonar, touch and drag on the Wii U's touch screen to change Batman's gadgets promptly, and feature called "B.A.T' which allows Batman to grow stronger by performing combos. Batman Arkham City: Armoured Edition is on track for a November 18th release date.

    Mmm, this looks fun! I've been wanting to play both arkham asylum, and arkham city, but never gotten around to it yet. this seems to be the "perfect" version to get for me (whenever I get a wiiU)

    Basically the touch screen acts as an inventory menu. The gyro gameplay looks like it could be good, particularly for point and click games.

    If this works well, and they do this sort of thing for more games then I may think of getting a Wii U.
    Other wise just nope

    Batman still can't walk properly

    These ideas seem cool but they are lame. Just make good exclusive games as it's better that these special features.

    I'm pretty sure this is the same video that was at e3. But in any event it is still a game I'm excited for. It looks like the screen is used well and the core game is great.

    These are neat novelties, but I'm not really sure if it's enough to fully justify the port. I think they would be better off bringing Arkham Asylum over for new players, but that's neither here nor there.

    cool cool cool

    Arkham Asylum isn't needed as the stories in both games are mostly self-contained.

    Not exactly. Considering how a good chunk of the plot points are built off of the events of the first game (Joker's illness, the need for Arkham City in the first place, etc.), I wouldn't say they're so self contained. Plus, AA is a great game in its own right and deserves to be enjoyed by more people.

    Do I think this is the best version of Arkham City? if it includes DLCs, then yes

    Do I think it's worth buying again after already completing the normal version? probably not
