Yesterday, Rocksteady released their latest trailer, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” for Batman: Arkham Knight. The trailer features the one and only The Voice, Frank Sinatra, as he croons one of his most famous songs. However, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” takes on a twisted meaning as the trailer starts off with The Joker’s cremation. The Joker’s sadistic smile goes up in flames, but not before you think his eyes are going to pop open. Sinatra’s tunes are abruptly turned off and Officer Owens begins an ominous narration, “This is how the Batman dies.”
The second half of the trailer transitions from a cut scene into what appears to be actual game play. The player takes control of Officer Owens as he stops in at a local Gotham diner. Upon responding to a seemingly harmless request to ask one of the diner’s customers to stop smoking, all hell breaks loose. Chaos takes over the diner as what can only be described as zombies invade the diner.
Batman: Arkham Knight will be available on PlayStation 4, XBox One and PC next Tuesday, June 23rd.
