If last year’s Arkham Knight made you wish you could jump back into Rocksteady’s first two Batman games on a current-gen console, you just might be in luck.
According to a report by Eurogamer, it appears both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City will be getting the remastered treatment. Better yet, both will be available together in the Arkham HD Collection, set to go on sale for pre-order tomorrow, April 19, for PS4 and Xbox One. Including all the DLC for both games, the collection will then release June 10. The leak comes courtesy of a GameStop employee who took pictures of the listing.
Both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City released last generation, on PS3 and Xbox 360, making the ‘HD Collection’ moniker a little suspect. But if the collection is real, it’s interesting that it only includes Rocksteady’s entries in the series. WB Montreal’s Arkham Origins is absent.
Released in 2009, Arkham Asylum sees Batman travel to the notorious mental institution, transporting the Joker. After a mass escape however, everything falls into chaos. Following a similar trend of locking Batman in a prison with all of his greatest villains, Arkham City was released in 2011. With part of Gothom walled off as a massive maximum-security prison, Batman finds himself thrown inside.
