New Joker Video From 'Batman: Arkham Asylum' Hits The 'Net

The Joker in Batman: Arkham AsylumE3, the annual mecca of all things gaming, is happening right now on the West Coast, but for those of us who couldn't make the trek, there's one piece of news to already hit the 'Net that should be of interest to comics fans.

While we've seen bunches of video from the "Batman: Arkham Asylum" game already -- everything from Harley Quinn and Bane to Poison Ivy and our own MTV-exclusive gameplay video -- we now have our first glimpse of the Joker as a playable character in the game. The announcement that players will be able to use the Joker character in certain portions of the game as a Playstation-exclusive feature hit the online scene this weekend, along with a video on GameTrailers.com that shows you exactly what becoming the Joker will entail.


"Batman: Arkham Asylum" is scheduled to hit shelves near the end of summer.

What do you think of the new video? Think it captures the spirit of the Joker?
