Reports are suggesting "Batman: Return to Arkham" could be the newest "Batman" game to watch out for. The title reportedly appeared in a PEGI listing shortly after a "Batman Arkham HD Collection" "leaked."
Eurogamer was the first to spot "Batman: Return to Arkham - Arkham Asylum" as being listed on the Pan European Game Information website. PEGI, Europe's rating board, apparently rated the game for Sony's PlayStation 4 and has a release date of April 19.
April 19 is also the date when pre-orders for the "Batman Arkham HD Collection" begins, according to an email sent by a GameStop employee to Eurogamer. The "leak" came by way of pictures sent by said employee to the publication.
Based on the image provided to Eurogamer, "Batman Arkham HD Collection" will include two games, one being "Batman: Return to Arkham - Arkham Asylum" and the other one being "Batman: Return to Arkham - Arkham City." It will also contain all downloadable content from the two titles.
Apparently, the two titles are remastered and updated versions for current-generation consoles. "Batman: Arkham Asylum" and "Batman: Arkham City," released in 2009 and 2011 respectively, were created by Rocksteady Studios. "Batman: Arkham Origins," a title developed by Warner Bros.' Montreal studio and released in 2013, isn't included in the new anthology. However, neither is "Batman: Arkham Knight," last year's offering from Rocksteady.
"Batman Arkham HD Collection" is said to become available on both the PS4 and Xbox One on June 10. The collection and the two games it contains have not been officially announced though, so readers should take this information with a grain of salt.
IGN believes the PEGI listing has all but confirmed the existence of the "Batman Arkham HD Collection." And With "Batman: Return to Arkham - Arkham Asylum" already rated, Eurogamer expects "Batman: Return to Arkham - Arkham City" will follow suit.
