New Rocksteady game could be coming next year
Posted on 5 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U | 0 comments
Last year, there had been speculation stemming from a Variety report about a Rocksteady-made, Silver Age-based Batman game. There are now questions as to whether the article was referring to Arhkam Origins or something else entirely, but it does indeed seem that that studio is cooking up a new Batman project in any case.
Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, previously said he was working on a Batman game – and it wasn’t Origins.
As far as when the title will launch, it may release as early as next year. Kotaku has picked up on job postings for an unnamed British developer matching text of Rocksteady career openings, which says the company’s new project “has been tipped to be one of the most successful games of 2014.”

Remember how Zelda: Skyward Sword’s main theme played backwards actually turned out to be Zelda’s Lullaby? It would appear that Nintendo has implemented something similar for a track in Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. One of the game’s musical pieces, if played in reverse, seems to be the Hyrule Castle theme from A Link to the Past.
Check out the video above to hear the song played in both directions. You can also listen to A Link to the Past’s Hyrule Castle theme here.

2DS sales have risen 64 percent week-on-week in the UK. The boost, in part, is due to a price cut initiated by retailers. Argos, Amazon and Tesco, and others have been offering the 2DS for just under £100. The 2DS alone was the best-selling console in the UK last week, and that’s without counting 3DS/3DS XL sales.
