Batman: Arkham City coming next Fall!!

These Game Informer covers are godly!!

Batman Solo

Batman and Catwoman

Looks like Catwoman is confirmed for the game!

Joystiq.com is reporting a Fall 2011 release date for Playstation 3, Xbox360, and PC.

Skitch Commentary: I am hoping the second one maintains the greatness of the first one. A few things I am really hoping to see:

Variety of playable characters! Give me at least a Nightwing, Robin or Oracle level!

No Free roam! Or at least, no more Free Roam than the original. I don’t want this to be Batman: GTA. I love the claustrophobic nature of the first one. Have different areas you travel to via Batmobile or Batwing.

No more dumb Bane: Knightfall is one of my favorite comic stories, and I was really hoping the sequel would be more like that and not another Joker story. But, if Joker needs to be the bad guy, can we at least get the clever Bane. I loved that about him when he first showed up, that he was Bruce’s equal in physical and mental prowess.
