E3 2012: Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition Swoops Onto Wii U

Posted by Mike Mason

Back in bat

Batman will be swooping onto Wii U in expanded form in Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition.

This is no quick port: Wii U GamePad will be used to access Detective Mode to scan the room, or mess around with The Bat's extensive tool belt. The Batarang can be remote controlled with the GamePad's gyroscopes. You can also hold the controller up to walls to plant several explosives before setting them off one at a time with the touch screen.

Will you be returning to Arkham City with a Wii U GamePad by your side?

I'm liking how the GamePad will be used in Arkham City. By the looks of it, it makes the player really feel like he is in control of Batman's utility belt.

I was just going to buy this GOTY on the PS3. Then I decided to wait. Then the rest of the WiiU content sucked so I probably won't be buying a WiiU for awhile so I'll get this and AC3 on PS3.
And no I'm not just trolling, my kids and i were really looking forward to WiiU, but i am so underwhelemd right now, no rush.

I tried playing this on PS3 and didn't like it much. I liked the first one better, BUT I have to say the features with the controller make me wanna gives this version a try.
So far, this game, ninja gaiden 3, and new super mario bros u are day one purchase for me.

A lot of these features were on the PS3 version, like sixaxis remote batarang and selective gel explosions, they just made them more prominent in this WiiU version.

But hey new shiny catwoman :o

I watched my friend play this for PS3 though I haven't given it a try. I'm loving the updates for Wii U... I think this may be an insta-buy for me. Wow, didn't expect to say that so early into the Wii U's life...

Wasn't a fan of the first demo-wise. 3D Brawlers + Stealth gameplay doesn't exactly fly with me. I'm better off snaging Batman: The Brave & the Bold for the Wii and Batman for the NES. :p

If anything i'm intrigued by the Gamepad screen innovations....I might give this a try. but I'm leaning towards a no.

I just finished this on PS3 like a week ago. Afraid I'll probably leave this one be.

This reminded me that I need to download the DLC on the PS3 version.

This looks fun. I wonder if it will have all the previous dlc included too. I've still to get the first one on PS3. Maybe by the time I do, and finish it, I'll decide between this version or the PS3 version. I'm thinking this version...
