‘Batman: Arkham Asylum’ Studio Interested In A Bane Spinoff?
As if “Batman: Arkham Asylum” wasn’t enough of a masterpiece on its own, Rocksteady’s studio director Sefton Hill is already daydreaming about a possible spinoff video game focused on – brace yourself – Bane.
“I think one of the things about working on Batman is that you really get to see how good all the villains are,” Hill told Video Gamer last week. “I really think there’s scope to take some of those villains, even some of the not-so-famous ones like Bane, who has a phenomenal backstory, and really work on turning that into something original and fresh.
“That’s kinda something [that would be] less popular, but something that could be really interesting and exciting,” he added. “That could be crazy.”
Crazy indeed. Can you imagine a game that thrusts the player into the driver’s seat alongside Bane with the express purpose of seeking out Bruce Wayne and breaking his back into pieces? It’s not a game that I’d immediately think to create, but it’s certainly one I would play in a heartbeat – and as Warner Bros. just announced the formation of a Montreal video game studio with DC Comics in mind, a “Bane” game might not be too far from reality.[Source: Video Gamer via Kotaku]
