Yet another leak for Rocksteady Studios’ and Warner Bros. Interactive’s Batman: Return to Arkham HD Collection crops up, revealing the game’s box art.
A brand new leak for the Batman: Return to Arkham HD Collection has hit the Web, as an unspecified Italian gaming magazine has now confirmed its box art, which depicts the rumored compendium’s inclusion of both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. Not only does the leak show that the first two titles in Rocksteady Studios’ triptych for the Dark Knight are in the anthology, but also the images reveal that the Batman: Return to Arkham HD Collection is most definitely being released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
This most recent disclosure basically syncs up with the majority of the revelations for the remastered collection that have made their way online. For one, the leak from GameStop Italy corresponds with the Italian magazine’s assertion that the all of first two games’ DLC will be included. Not to mention, the release date of “10 Giugno” (June 10) for the Batman: Return to Arkham HD Collection matches the details from a GameStop employee’s photo showing the exact same launch date.
There is, however, one previously revealed detail for the Batman: Return to Arkham HD Collection that doesn’t jibe with the most recent leak from the Italian magazine. In the leak that started the remaster rumor, which had Warner Bros. Interactive showing fans several options for the collection’s cover and asking which one would be their favorite, the latest look at what is perhaps the official box art was never a choice to begin with. At any rate, fans can get a gander at Batman: Return to Arkham HD Collection‘s presumptive box art below.
Although games getting remade and remastered are all the rage these days—Sony’s The Last of Us Remastered for PlayStation 4 sold well enough that it warranted an updated version of God of War 3, for instance—some fans aren’t too keen to see Rocksteady’s Batman titles get the treatment. As a matter of fact, one Game Rant writer believes the Arkham remasters would be unnecessary.
In any event, with so many pieces of evidence piling up to prove that Rocksteady and Warner Bros. Interactive are moving forward with next-gen versions of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, it’s incredibly likely that the remasters will come to pass. All we can do at this point is sit tight and wait for developers to make the official announcement.
What do you think about the most recent leak for the Batman: Return to Arkham HD Collection? With all of the leaks for the remastered titles coming out, why do you believe Rocksteady and Warner Bros. have yet to confirm or deny the anthology’s existence? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Should the leaks be accurate, then the Batman: Return to Arkham HD Collection is set to release on June 10, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
