We were a little bemused by the extremely short (and very out of context) sampling of the Batman: Arkham City trailer that hit the web a few days back, but the genuine article that debuted on the VGAs tonight is truly a sight for Batfans to behold.The trailer sets up the game's wider premise pretty quickly, revealing that longtime Batman tormentor Hugo Strange is effectively toying with the Dark Knight by sending a squad of heavily armed mercenaries after him. Naturally, the team is no match for the Caped Crusader, but the attack is only a warmup as Strange pushes forward with a plan to destroy the hero completely inspired by the knowledge of his "Greatest weakness."
