(PCM) Two years after the release of the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham City, we finally get a chance to return to Gotham and take control of the Caped Crusader once again in Batman: Arkham Origins. This third installment of the popular franchise is actually a prequel, taking place roughly 5 years before the events in Batman: Arkham Asylum.
The game centers around a young and cocky Bruce Wayne who is still new to the vigilante lifestyle, and is meeting many of Gotham’s infamous villains for the first time. Although there might not be a significant change in gameplay controls or graphics, this is the first game in the franchise that does not include Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman, or Mark Hamill as the Joker. Check out what Roger Craig Smith (the new voice of Batman) and Troy Baker (voice of The Joker) have to say about voicing these iconic characters at New York Comic-Con 2013.
