The Joker as playable character exclusive to PS3 version of Batman: Arkham Asylum

Submitted by on Thursday, 23 April 20094 Comments

JokerIf you were quick enough, you may have noticed some posters in Home today advertising the fact that The Joker will be a playable character in Rocksteady’s upcoming Batman: Arkham Asylum game.

And just as people were trying to wrap their heads around the announcement, the ads were gone – leaving people to question if the Killing Joke was on them.

Prepare to keep that maniacal grin on your face as we have confirmation that The Joker will indeed be a playable character in what could be one of the surprise must-haves of the summer.

The heads-up came from our friends over at Destructoid who captured the following ad before it was unceremoniously yanked. Was the information let loose on the unsuspecting public prematurely? It’s quite possible, and it wouldn’t be the first time information of this type popped up in the strangest of places.

Homeites got a surprise visit from a pale murdering clown. No, not Edward from Twilight.

As you can see from the above, the word exclusive appears quite prominently with PS3 fans able to download the character (for free) after the game launches.

Before you get too carried away with the laughing gas, we should highlight that the green-haired sociopath will only be playable inside the Challenge Rooms. If you want a refresher or what these rooms looks like, we’re only too happy to oblige.
