If you can't get enough "Batman: Arkham City," Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios are serving up some butt-kicking combat on your iOS device. Out now on the iTunes App Store, "Batman: Arkham City Lockdown" doesn't look like an exact port of this year's hit game, but more like a fighting game set in the titular prison-city.
According to today's press release, the game is based on the "Arkham" franchise (obviously), but the focus appears to be "one-on-one" combat. I haven't had a chance to play the game yet, but given NetherRealm's pedigree ("Mortal Kombat"), I'm optimistic that the game might actually play well. Well, if it can get past the touch-screen hurdle.
"We here at NetherRealm Studios are huge fans of 'Batman: Arkham City,' and we were very excited to develop 'Batman: Arkham City Lockdown' to extend the franchise experience to iPad, iPhone and iPod touch," said NetherRealm's creative director, Ed Boon. "The app delivers a different take on Batman gameplay in which players must combat against some of the fan favorite villains in Arkham City."
"Lockdown" features boss fights with major villains like Two-Face, The Joker, and Solomon Grundy. You'll also have a chance to duke it out with Deathstroke, who didn't appear in "Arkham City."
I have absolutely no idea at this point if the game's any good, but it's available for $5.99 on the App Store right now. That price point places it into the "Infinity Blade" level of iOS games, so here's hoping it's worth the cost of admission.
