Star Wars star Mark Hamill and stage and screen actor Kevin Conroy will reprise their roles as Joker and Batman from Batman: The Animated Series in a new video game that explores the depths of Gotham’s evil.

Published by Eidos Interactive and developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham Asylum boasts an original story featuring iconic DC Comics characters such as Batman, The Joker and Killer Croc.

The Dark Knight has no choice but to enter into what can only be an ambush. Arkham Asylum features brutal combat, giant boss battles and deadly experiments within the notorious island prison.

Conroy has been known as the voice of Batman and Bruce Wayne for more than fifteen years in various animated films and television series. Mark Hamill, who is also a veteran of many animated Batman properties, has flourished in voice-over work following his Star Wars fame.

Featuring an original story penned exclusively for the game by famous Batman author, Batman: The Animated Series writer and five-time Emmy award winner Paul Dini, Batman: Arkham Asylum, will launch worldwide on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC in summer 2009.
