New Batman: Arkham Knight Bundle Offers Morrison, McKean Graphic Novel
Rocksteady Studios' upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight is just a little over a month away from release, but that didn't stop Warner Bros. from announcing a new bundle for the trilogy finale.
According to a new Amazon listing, Batman: Arkham Knight will be offered in a package deal that includes the game, a first appearance skin, and a new 25th anniversary edition hardcover of Grant Morrison and Dave McKean's Batman: Arkham Asylum graphic novel. The standard game will retail for $59.99, but this bundle will be available for $69.99. The book itself retails for around $25, so that's a pretty good deal for one of the most out there and memorable original Batman graphic novels of the past 25 years.
The first appearance skin included features the classic purple gloves, along with the huge belt and diminutive bat symbol. As far as skins go, I can either take them or leave them unless they are Knightfall Batman. That costume just looks so ridiculous in the world of Rocksteady's Arkham series, it's hard not to love it.
The previous collector's editions of Batman: Arkham Knight, including the Batmobile edition, have long sold out at retail, so this "last minute" bundle is a nice gesture for fans who may have missed out on one of the more elaborate editions of the game. Of course, it will also help Warner Bros. Interactive and DC Comics make a little bit more money, too. Still, it's nice to see comics being given away with the video game for once.
Batman: Arkham Knight will be available on June 23 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
