The Dark Knight returns to consoles next fall

Today we have word that Batman: Arkham City will hit consoles in fall 2011. Judging from the cover shots of September's issue of GameInformer, a bloodied Batman poses with the game's new character, Catwoman.

One of our picks for 2009 game of the year was undoubtedly Batman: Arkham Asylum . Satisfying gameplay, a near-perfect fighting system, references to almost all the characters in the Batman universe, and a fantastic cast easily made it the best Batman game ever made.

While we knew to expect a sequel to the new franchise, we were a bit letdown to watch E3 2010 come and go with no official announcement of when we could see the Dark Knight back in action.

Today we have word that Batman: Arkham City will hit Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in the fall of 2011. Judging from the cover shots of September's issue of GameInformer, the sequel looks like a grittier take on the franchise as a bloodied Batman poses with the game's new character, a uniquely envisioned Catwoman.
