New 'Batman: Arkham Asylum' Trailer -- The Poison Ivy Edition

Poison Ivy
By Rick Marshall

We've been raving about "Batman: Arkham Asylum" here on Multiplayer and Splash Page (MTV's comic book and movie blog) for a while now, so we can probably dispense with the normal "Oohs" and "ahhs" that accompany every new glimpse we get of the game. This time around, a new character profile video has hit the 'Net featuring Batman nemesis Poison Ivy, who uses her power over plant life to make trouble for The Dark Knight.

To be honest, if it wasn't for the "Arkham Asylum" gameplay videos and impressive (though limited) demo we've seen thus far, I'd be pretty sure this game was too good to be true. Both the Bane and Harley Quinn trailers looked that good, but I've been burned by pretty cinematics before.

But the Poison Ivy video that hit IGN this week? Well, it's just as pretty as the rest. Check it out:
