Between Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City and Batman: The Brave and the Bold - The Video Game and other titles, the Caped Crusader hasn't been suffering from a lack of game releases over the past few years. As critically acclaimed and successful as most of these titles have been, a lot of players may not have even noticed when there wasn't a video game tie-in for The Dark Knight ala EA's Batman Begins release in 2005. It appears The Dark Knight Rises won't share a similarly game-less fate, though, with IGN releasing a new teaser trailer for Gameloft's upcoming mobile game for iOS and Android devices and Google Play. From the looks of things, the title will contain its share of brawling with generic thugs (complete with headbutts!). Fellow costumed peeps Catwoman and Bane aren't seen in the teaser, although its ominous language, "When Gotham is threatened and people live in fear, only one hope remains," suggests that the mean masked fellow will be on hand. Aside from mentioning a vague "summer 2012" release, it's unclear when the game will drop, though release around The Dark Knight Rises's July 20 opening date seems prudent.
