If you're one of CA's New Zealand readers, you may already be playing the new Batman: Arkham City spinoff, Batman: Arkham City Lockdown on your iOS device of choice. For the rest of us, IGN's got new images and details about NetherRealm Studios' new single-player fighter that pits the Caped Crusader against Deathstroke, Two-Face, Solomon Grundy, Joker and more. Just like in Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Arkham City Lockdown will give players a chance to don multiple Batman skins and update Bats' gear. The game's combat style isn't super clear, but IGN thinks it may compare to the Infinity Blade franchise. There's no official word on when the game will pop up for sale in the United States or other countries, but it's suspected to appear on iTunes in the very near future (as soon as tonight or tomorrow). New Zealand players are currently paying $8.29 NZ, which converts to roughly $6-7 USD, though pricing may vary quite a bit.From the Apple app-store description (for New Zealand users):

The inmates have escaped and Batman has his hands full defeating an army of henchmen and some of his most iconic villains. Scour the rooftops and the seedy underbelly of Gotham City through a series of one-on-one battles with the Joker, Two-Face and more, as well as the Batman: Arkham City Lockdown exclusive – Deathstroke. Choose from several Batman skins and power-ups as you punch, kick and combo your way to cleaning up Gotham City.
