Batman: Arkham City collector's edition detailed

360 News | Extra cash for more Bat. UPDATE: Picture and PAL details released.
A special version of Batman: Arkham City has just popped up on a couple of American websites, giving us a few clues about what to expect when Bruce Wayne creeps out of the shadows this October. It's important to note that when Arkham Asylum was released, there were variations between the NTSC and PAL collector's editions, so don't be surprised if Australia gets something slightly different.

UPDATE: The PAL version contents have now been announced, via Press Release.

Priced at AU$149.95, inside you'll find the following:

  • Premium Kotobukiya produced Statue
  • Early access to Digital add-on content: Iceberg Lounge Challenge Map and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns skin
  • Collectible Art Book
  • Bonus DC Universe animated original movie, Batman: Gotham Knight
  • Four collectible cards
  • Batman: Arkham City album including original songs by hit artists (available via digital redemption)
Pictures have now surfaced, so check the contents out below. Batman: Arkham City will be released on 19 October 2011 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Need pictures before I'll commit but I am interested in a collectors edition for this game. I'm still spewing that I didn't get the CE for Arkham Asylum.

The Batarang in the CE of Arkham Asylum was terrible. Here's hoping the statue is better.

Damn, i know it was unrealistic, since i'm probably the only person asking for it, but a USB powered batsignal would have been awesome. You might just use it once, but after that it could sit on your shelf like any statue/figure/replica.
I got burned with the Arkham Asylum collectors edition. Pre-ordered shortly after it was released, the Bat-Arrange was a piece of crud, the diary/artbook was flimy and looked nothing like the one advertised (i think it was different in the US release, might have been whats mentioned in the article) and the case for the game doesn't really sit well on the shelf and didn't have anywhere for the manual.

Statue looks real nice. Linked because it's larger than 1000 pixels wide/high -.-

Also, Kotobukiya is one of the premium Japanese figure/statue makers, so quality won't really be an issue in my opinion.

Wow, looks pretty cool. I'll admit I was a little disappointed that the Australian version of AA ended up getting a little bit ripped off compared to the American edition, like having an actual cover slip for the game case, getting rid of the leather binding for the journal etc. Hopefully its a bit better this time.

The only thing that really sucks with this edition is the game disk seems to be tucked in the cover of the artbook, meaning that it wont sit well on the shelf and the potential for having the disc scratched in transit is high.
The Gotham Knight film seems to be packed separately and the soundtrack is DLC, so that is the only explanation for the disk in the artbook. I do hope I'm wrong though.

That Dark Knight Returns skin looks really neat. I always liked that design, ridiculous though it may be.

Nothing else here really interests me, though. It's weird that they'd include Gotham Knight, since it's tied to the Nolan-universe. It does have Kevin Conroy voicing Batman, but you'd think a few old TAS episodes would be a better match. They do that on the Blu Rays for the new DC Animated Originals, at least the Bat-related ones.

Just speculation, but the back panel - behind the statue - looks like the right size to hold a game case. Maybe the actual game isn't shown in the image?

Again, just my thoughts.
