Classic Villians Return to Arkham Asylum 2

December 14, 2009Written by Dan Massi


There have been plenty of new game announcements brought by the Spike Video Game Awards. Probably the biggest game announcement was Batman: Arkham Asylum 2, which was showcased during the show’s opening. Many of the viewers noticed the sickly Joker at the end of the trailer with the devious Harley Quinn, but did they notice the other villain reveals?

Following a tweet by Geoff Keighley asking who else has seen the other villains revealed in the debut trailer, an author from the website went on a search for the 4 possible villain reveals for Batman: Arkham Asylum 2. Of course, The Joker and Harley Quinn were shown at the end of the trailers, but what were the others? It seems only three of the villains were found at the time of this writing.


The first picture would most likely make a person scream, “Mr. Freeze!”, though that is not the case. Iceberg is actually the name of a lounge owned by The Penguin, named the Iceberg Lounge.


The second picture shows a sign with the name of “Sionis”. The Batman villain The Black Mask, has the real name of Roman Sionis.


Many anticipated gamers probably went to the ArkhamHasMoved website last night following the Arkham Asylum 2 trailer. If you did in fact visit, you may have seen the image above. Obviously the villain show here is Two-Face, who is flipping a coin and holding a gun. Two-Face was mentioned in the first Arkham Asylum title, yet made no physical appearance.

What other villains do you want in the sequel? Post your comments below!
