An LED-lit Joker’s the centerpiece of this twice-the-retail-price set, which includes a schematics, DLC, and a little bit of Anarky from October’s “Batman: Arkham Origins.”
The set, whose contents will be detailed a bit further below, will be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 at launch (sorry, Wii U and PC owners). If you’re going multiplatform, in terms of bonuses, you might want to look at the PS3 version which not only includes a Blu-ray copy of the “Necessary Evil” documentary but additional “Knightfall” DLC.
The “Knighttfall” DLC, if you’ll recall, features costumes and challenges based on the mid-90’s storyline where Batman’s back was broken and was replaced by mentally unbalanced vigilante Jean Paul Valley AKA Azrael.
