Some Batman: Arkham City's Concept Art Released!

Many of us have played Batman: Arkham Asylum.  It is hands-down the BEST Batman game ever created.  In order to keep a well-loved franchise growing, Warner is going to need to step it up to the next level to make an even better game.  From the concept art and gameplay, this seems extremely promising!

In a recent interview, the concept artist discussed the route they wanted to go with Batman's sidekick, Robin.

"Our vision of Robin is the one of a troubled young individual that is calm and introverted a times but dangerous and aggressive if provoked." says Kan Mutfic on the Rocksteady forums. "The shaved head is inspired by cage fighters, because we thought that Robin might be doing that in his spare time to keep him on his toes."

WOAH! A cage fighter Robin.  Whatever happened to the Boy Wonder?  He's a lot grittier now, and by this alone we can see that this game is shaping up to be a Game of the Year contender for 2011.

How about the rest of the game? Take a look at the concept art released by Warner below, and even a gameplay video.  Brace for epic.
