Batman: Arkham Origins screens confirm Joker and Anarky

New voice actors for main characters confirmed

Warner has released a new set of screenshots for Batman: Arkham Origins, confirming the appearance of Joker and Anarky in WB Montreal's upcoming prequel.

GamesRadar reports that the game ditches some classic Batman voices, losing Mark Hamill (formerly Joker) and Kevin Conroy (formerly Batman) in favour of some new blood with "mixed results".

Strangely, however, Conroy seemingly confirmed he'll be voice Batman in the game during a panel at Dalls Comic Con. However, it may be that he is instead voicing a different, unrevealed, character.

Origin's Batman will reportedly be voiced by Roger Craig Smith, known for playing Ezio in Assassin's Creed 2 and Sonic in the hedgehog's recent outings.

Troy Baker, who played BioShock Infinite's Booker DeWitt and the default hero in Saints Row: The Third, has taken on the Joker role previously held by Hamill.

Earlier today, Warner released a five-minute Batman: Arkham Origins trailer.

The publisher has confirmed a Batman: Arkham Origins release date of October 25 for Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. A spin-off title, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, has also been announced for 3DS and Vita.

The third game in the Arkham series will reportedly be the first to contain a multiplayer mode.
