The release of Batman: Arkham City is almost upon us and with the date closing in, I’m betting a lot of fans will have already pre-ordered their copy and maybe will have been playing Arkham Asylum to get them in the mood. Marking the fact that the game is about to hit stores, a commercial has finally made its way online and it’s a hilarious one which features Batman wannabes.
In the build-up to Arkham City’s release, Rocksteady Studios has been extremely generous in sharing details about the game that fans have been dying to know. These have included introducing characters one at a time, details about the DLC packs and even allowing leaked gameplay footage. The game will release in just under a week’s time and now we are able to take a first look at the advert for it.
It stars two grown male gaming friends on the phone to each other arguing who, out of the two, is most like Batman whilst playing the game. It reminded me a lot of the ‘you know how I know you’re gay?’ scene in the movie 40 Year Old Virgin, in the way that the two of them are just constantly going at each other, trying to outdo one another and makes for some comical viewing. There is also one part in particular that is sure to have viewers in stitches; it might even remind you of yourself.
Hopefully I haven’t given too much away as we have embedded the video for the commercial below so you can see for yourself how funny it is. With the game due out next Tuesday, are you satisfied with the details that have been revealed about Arkham City so far? Do you think there will be anymore revelations from now until then?
