The Night is Always Darkest Just Before I Take Out Another Thug

Eidos, developer of the recently-announced Batman: Arkham Asylum game, just released some new screenshots to the public. What we know already is that the game will focus strongly on Batman's combat abilities and allow you to pull neat tricks like distracting enemies with their own companions' screams of terror. Anyway, one of the new screens has me particularly interested...

If you look above, you'll see the The Dark Knight suspended above his prey. I am hoping that this screen is from actual gameplay. Allowing players to lie in wait for enemies by hanging upside-down would be a very nice treat in 2009 when the game releases. Here's hoping...

If you haven't seen it yet, hit the jump for the game's teaser trailer and screenshot galleries.

Check out a slew of screenshots here and here, courtesy of Kotaku.
