With an original script by Emmy Award-winning "Batman" writer Paul Dini, the game brings the universe of DC Comics’ detective to life with stunning graphics.

"In 'Batman: Arkham Asylum' Eidos and Warner Bros. are building a true action adventure game experience worthy of gamers and fans," said Phil Rogers, CEO of Eidos Interactive.

"Players become 'Batman', like he has never been seen before in a video game, as he fights through intense circumstances in Arkham Asylum utilizing his intuitive detective skills and aggressive melee attacks."

"'Batman: Arkham Asylum' offers players the chance to battle Gotham’s worst villains with Batman’s physical and psychological strength in a graphically distinct and story-driven game," said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

"We look forward to working with Eidos on expanding DC Comics’ world-renowned character 'Batman' in the game space with a noticeably different feature set in an incredibly dark interactive environment."
