Okay, maybe not, but they sure can unite to kick some Batman ass. This latest trailer for Rocksteady’s eagerly anticipated Batman: Arkham City game showcases the Dark Knight’s encounter with a suitably creepy looking Penguin, and, in a nifty Goonies homage, a basement-shackled Solomon Grundy. (Who unfortunately doesn’t scream “hey you guys!” a la Sloth). These levels will initially only be available in the $99 Collector’s Edition of the game when it is released on October 18th. The good news is that they will eventually be offered as downloadable content. This way, everybody wins! Well, everyone except the poor bastard underling of the Penguin’s who has to clean up Grundy’s droppings.
