Batman: Return to Arkham Reveals the Collection's Graphical Upgrades

Batman: Return to Arkham Reveals the Collection's Graphical Upgrades

...Because what can you trust more than official promotional materials?

If you somehow missed Batman's return to form in 2009's Arkham Asylum and 2011's Arkham city, you're in luck: Starting today, you can now buy the Return to Arkham Collection, which includes both games in one slightly enhanced package. (Arkham Origins can sit and spin, I guess.)

While some have complained that the general "brightening" of both games has dampened their gloomy atmospheres, you can see Return to Arkham's changes for yourself via a video released by the official Batman Arkham YouTube channel.

As it stands, $49.99 seems a little expensive for a rerelease of two old-ish games that could probably be had for a third of that cost elsewhere, but the lack of backwards compatibility in our new consoles makes this a less feasible option. (Unless you're using Steam, where both titles regularly go on sale for $4.99-$9.99.) In any case, if you've got a hankering to collect scores of Riddler trophies, now you can do it all over again, but with slightly better production values.
