First Batman: Arkham Asylum trailer

A moody, teasing introduction to the game's environments

Eidos has released the debut trailer for Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham Asylum, showing off Gotham City's darkest location, the psychiatric hospital of the game's title.

The pouring rain, ominous music, cold environments and creepy laughter certainly set a moody tone, but the trailer doesn't really give away much about the title itself.

It would have been nice to get a few shots of some big characters like the Joker or the Caped Crusader himself, but this is definitely one to keep your eyes out for over the coming months as it gets further reveals.

The game promises to offer a mixture of brawling and puzzle solving, and it's due out next year for PS3, 360 and PC.
