A teaser trailer has been released for the upcoming Batman game, entitled "Batman: Arkham Asylum, which will be published by Eidos. Apparently, Eidos has rights to the Batman comics, while EA has the rights to the movies.
The game will be set exclusively in and around Arkham Asylum, which has been taken over by the Joker. The asylum will be a contained, persistent location, making the game feel more like Riddick or BioShock than other more recent, more open-world superhero titles. The Joker's not alone, either: Batman will also be up against the Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Penguin, Harley Quinn, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy and more.
"Batman: Arkham Asylum" is set for release sometime in 2009, and will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Trailer features very little in-game graphics. What does the gameplay look like? Even Duke Nukem Forever has a better trailer. Batman vid games never do well, save Lego Batman. Anyway, looks like it uses the Doom 3 engine.
