167w ago - Today SCEE's James Gallagher has shared an interview with Dax Ginn on Batman: Arkham City for the PS3 entertainment system from Gamescom 2011.

To quote: I remember the day my copy of Arkham Asylum arrived at the office because I hadn't followed the game's development too closely and, when I took it home just to check out what my colleagues had been raving about, I finished it that same weekend.

Compeered by Dax Ginn, marketing game manager at Rocksteady Studios, two members of the dev team played through identical challenge maps on different TVs - one as Batman and one as Catwoman - in a face-off as a small group of journalists watched the stereoscopic 3D beatdown.

Afterwards, I caught up with Dax to discuss the gamescom build of Arkham City and their approach to character development with this sequel.

What do you have to show us in this build of Arkham City?

The Ninja Gaiden series has always been a renowned controller clencher and the third instalment in the series, coming to PS3 next year, includes PlayStation Move support. Here's the latest trailer:

We can have completely unique elements throughout the world without costing us performance."
