Rumored Batman: Return to Arkham Collection Gets Rating Listing for HD Rerelease

on April 19, 2016 7:28 AM

From the first installment with Batman: Arkham Asylum in 2009, the Arkham series has received near unanimous acclaim as some of the best comic book video games (or action games in general) ever produced, and now for those that want to relive their night in either Arkham Asylum or Arkham City, an HD rerelease of both titles seems to be on the horizon.

New reports have revealed Batman: Return to Arkham, an HD collection containing newly-remastered versions of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, along with each of the game’s DLCs and add-ons.

However, the collection seems to exclude 2013’s Batman: Arkham Origins, a prequel to the trilogy of games by Rocksteady Studios that was not developed by the original studio, and instead developed by Warner Bros. Montreal.

Initial news on the collection came from a leak through Eurogamer, where a GameStop employee had initially sent photos and information on the collection to the outlet, revealing its contents, a release date of June 10th, 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One, and that pre-orders would begin starting April 19th, 2016.

However, more firm evidence on the collection’s release comes from the European ratings board PEGI, which provided a listing for the collection’s release of Batman: Return to Arkham – Arkham Asylum.

While no official confirmation has come from either Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment or Rocksteady Studios just yet about the collection’s release, stay tuned for more information as news develops.
