Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition for the Wii U ships
Launch title for the new console from Nintendo is ready
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have announced that Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition for the Wii U system from Nintendo will begin shipping to North American retailers today.
Developed for Wii U by WB Games Montréal, the game builds upon the action game of 2011 created by Rocksteady Studios and makes its first appearance on any Nintendo platform as a launch title for the new home console that hits stores beginning November 18.
The Armored Edition introduces Battle Armored Tech (B.A.T.) combat mode and new Armored Suits for both Batman and Catwoman. The upgraded battle suits give players the ability to store kinetic energy during combat, allowing them to enter B.A.T. mode. Fans are also introduced to a more seamless experience as they are given convenient access to the Batcomputer, which is made available instantly through the Wii U GamePad touch screen that allows players to select objectives, choose their gadgets, track forensic evidence for important clues, set off explosive gel and more.
Batman: Arkham City is also available for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
