Watch Adam West Batman Get His Hands Dirty In Batman: Arkham Origins

By Ishaan . September 24, 2013 . 9:58am

As previously reported, Batman: Arkham Origins will get two exclusive costumes at launch on PlayStation 3—the Adam West Batman outfit from the 1960s TV show and the costume featured in the Knightfall saga in the comics from the ‘90s. A new trailer shows both costumes in action, and you can watch it below:



Just when these costumes will be made available for other platforms hasn’t been announced yet. Batman: Arkham Origins will be released for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U on October 25th.

    What, no word bubbles that appear when you attack enemies as Adam West Batman? That would’ve been awesome.

    • British_Otaku

      I would have been sold if they just had the sound effects… It’s not Adam West Batman with all of the little details like that.

    • TheGioG

      Nobody messes with Adam We…

    • kylehyde

      Also no batman dancing twist

  • Alberto Maytorena

    You know this is a badass game when they made the campy costume look intimidating.

  • Sergio Briceño

    Knightfall Batman looks like Emperor Zurg. Just saying…

    • kylehyde

      Actually is based on Batman-Azrael (Jean-Paul Valley) which appeared years before the first toy story movie

  • Deebo#Take What I Like

    I want Batman suit from Batman Beyond

  • XiaomuArisu

    “Superstar Adam West?!?”
    “Where? Hah,its me!”

  • British_Otaku

    I will probably get it on the PS3 or Wii U anyway, but I think characters are much more decisive factor than a few skins which they can throw out with ease and don’t add to the experience directly. The Joker was great fun in Asylum, if only we had more missions or even a short campaign from his perspective set before going to Arkham… >_>

    • Aisha Lee

      Don’t they have Deathstroke as a playable character in Origins? That and they’ll probably have a few more down the road too.

      • British_Otaku

        I meant as a console exclusive to offer an incentive for people to buy it on one platform over another. Sure, it’s great that they have Deathstroke on all platforms getting Origins (awful preorder bonus policy or not) and that multiplayer has some fresh ideas.

        I’m focused on how few people who own a PS3 + some other system which they may plug in or use more will see a few skins as a reason to get the PS3 version when we could be getting more.

  • zferolie

    This needed more classic music and Adam West Lines.

    “Some day’s you just can’t get rid of a bomb”

  • Gotta be honest. If they decided to make the next Batman game based on the show, I’d be the first in line to get that.

  • Godmars

    Pity they didn’t get West to do some voice work.

  • makubexnas

    I’m totally sold if they include Adam West Batman theme song.

    Nanananananananana Batman!!

  • Hey! Adam West is still arond! Why not get him to do a little voice acting just for the costume?

  • Göran Isacson

    Man… so I wasn’t around for the Knightfall storyline, why does Batman look like a GI Joe action figure? Also, I am sad to hear that they didn’t get Adam West to do some voice clips… or heck, even include a bunch of BIFF POW WONG sound-effect bubbles. Or just plain sounds. The rest of the game could’ve been superserious, just include the sound effects. Though I guess that would’ve been a bit too much over budget, or something like that…

    Also “Asrael does not protect”? Who is Azrael?

    • DCBlackbird

      I was hoping for the same thing. I was even hoping for the hand on the hip bat claw pose.

      • Göran Isacson

        Alas, I guess we will just have to settle with everything BUT Batmans costume being super grim. A game with large colorful bubbles to clash with all the dark, dreary environments would’ve been SO ace, thouhg.

  • Holy Battusi~!

  • DCBlackbird

    Ahhh…. The 66 costume was so silly it became cool, the 90’s costume is so cool it’s silly….

  • DCBlackbird

    I hope they bring back egghead :D

  • Lucky Dan

    I’m getting tired of these “Exclusives” I’m just probably gonna buy an original copy when its cheap and get the :”game of the year” edition that happens with every god damn WESTERN RELEASE GAME in a years time with all the content.

  • katamari damacy

    If only Adam West batman had voiceover from Adam West and SFX sound bubbles. He’s done it before for family guy.
    Batman is dreary enough, they need light-hearted 60’s batman mode, that retells the entire story as if it was an episode of the original series. That i’d immediately pre-order for.
    We should petition for Adam West voice over DLC.

  • monkey king

    This better be a timed exclusive, I want that azrael costume so badly.
