Penguin Revealed For Batman: Arkham City July 22, 2011

After announcing it at E3 this year, the game developers for Batman: Arkham City have finally released an official trailer for the game which shows the famous Penguin.

The Penguin is an interesting choice for the game since he has never been so much as a straight out thug villian that Batman could simply beat up, but more of a crime boss in the same vein as Don Corleone, and you get that sense here in the trailer.

Penguin has been previously played by such acting alumni as Burgess Merideth and Danny deVito.  When I was at E3, I was sure I could place this guy’s voice actor when I first heard him speak, but hearing his voice in the trailer, I no longer can recognise the actor playing him.

Unlike the Catwoman gameplay segment I posted up here a while ago, some snippets of the second gameplay sequence I saw at E3 did find its way into this trailer, and it looks just as good here as it did when I saw it back in June.

Also, since we’re revealing villians for Batman: Arkham City here, here’s the announcment trailer for another major villian in Batman’s rogue’s gallery.  He played a major role in the first game, but we never saw his face.  We’ve known for a while that he would be returning in Arkham City, but not what the extent his appearance would be.  Well, now we know.  Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with Edward Nygma, The Riddler.

Batman: Arkham City is coming October 18th, 2011 for PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3
