We have official confirmation of the fact - Batman: Arkham City, one of the most eagerly awaited games of the year, will arrive in India on the very day of its release. According to a press release, the game will be available for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC platforms in India on October 21, 2011, the day it is scheduled for its global launch. Needless to say, we are absolutely delighted. In case you knew not, Batman: Arkham City comes from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, and is the sequel to the highly-acclaimed Batman: Arkham Asylum videogame and features the superhero they call the Dark Knight - the Batman. He will be up against Gotham City's worst as usual and this time we are assured of much better graphics (the ones in Arkham City were good enough, mind!) and a game world that is five times bigger than that seen in Arkham City. We cannot wait to get our capes on.
We bet a lot of people who complain about products taking their own time to reach Indian shores will just love to hear this - Team Biondi and Rockstar Game's highly anticipated and acclaimed cops and criminals game, L.A. Noire, is now available in India, within a few days of its international launch. The game, which in best Rockstar Games tradition (hey, these are the same gents and ladies who gave us the famous - and notorious - GTA series) has been attracting a fair bit of attention for its gritty storyline, gameplay and of course, presentation, is now available in Indian stores for both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 for Rs 2499. Needless to say, we are already in line for our copy. Is it as rave-worthy as people claim? Watch this space for our review, folks. As of now, we are just happy to see the game make it to Indian shores (and stores) so quickly.
