Official: Batman: Arkham Asylum goes 3D

Game of the Year edition out this month on consoles and PC

Square Enix has confirmed to CVG that the Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition will release in Europe - complete with 3D options - on March 26.

The new edition will include six extra challenge maps on disc plus "an innovative new technology" which offers console players a 'play-in-3D' option compatible with all standard and HDTV sets.

The 'TriOviz 3D' support will be included in both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, says Square, along with a pair of 3D glasses.

"By leveraging the depth-of-field while maintaining the original gameplay and colour integrity, TriOviz 3D creates a far more immersive gaming experience, allowing console players to dive deeper into the gothic world of Arkham Asylum," it says.


As for the new challenge maps, they'll have players "face-off against Arkham Asylum's toughest inmates in some of the iconic environs from the game such as the infamous Crime Alley and the insane Scarecrow Nightmare."

The Game of the Year edition will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and Game for Windows.
