'Batman: Arkham City' ready for strenuous second round
Thursday 08 September 2011
Batman: Arkham City, players will be able to start again, carrying over all of the Dark Knight's gadgets and upgrades from their first run.
Enemies and bosses will be tougher and trickier in this New Game Plus mode, and visual cues that help players time combination attacks will be removed.
That said, having access to Batman's significant stock of tech toys should give the caped crime-buster an advantage.
The inclusion of New Game Plus modes has a long history, dating back to The Legend of Zelda and Chrono Trigger, with the Metal Gear Solid series another early adopter.
More recently, Resident Evil 4 & 5, Super Mario Galaxy, Borderlands, Shadow Complex, Vanquish, and the Uncharted, Mass Effect and Dead Space series are among those to implement it in one form or another.
Even the gruelling Demon's Souls launches players straight into a punishing New Game Plus to further scrutinize any previous player errors.
Batman: Arkham City is set to land on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 the week of October 18.
