It’s been all but confirmed for weeks now in various areas, but Warner Brothers has finally announced Batman: Return to Arkham, a current-gen remastering of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. The two games, both critically acclaimed, are part of the Arkham series, which ended with Batman: Arkham Knight in June of last year.

The collection will include the Game of the Year Editions of both games, which will include all of the downloadable content that they were released with. Tellingly, Batman: Arkham Origins, thought of as the red-headed stepchild of the Arkham Series, is not included.

Both games involved taking on a significant portion of Batman’s rogues gallery in open-world settings, and what Batman didn’t fight, he was able to uncover through the series’s groundbreaking Detective Mode.

Along with finding a large number of collectibles, Batman could also uncover the backstories of many of Gotham City’s vilest criminals, ranging from old favorites like the Joker, Mr. Freeze, Two-Face, and Bane, to less prominent villains like Calendar Man, Deadshot, Firefly, and more.

Not to mention all of the cool gadgets. While Arkham Knight was the only game with a world large enough to justify the use of the Batmobile, players of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City were still able to use a lot of Batman’s toys in order to find their way through the game world. These tools could range from smoke bombs to various types of Batarangs, to the grappling hook.

The Batman: Return to Arkham collection is set to release on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One on July 26th, this year. Or, if you can’t wait but want a less polished, last-gen version of the Batman games, you can always log on to Steam to buy Arkham Asylum and Arkham City there, along with Arkham Origins. Don’t try Knight, though. It probably still isn’t fixed.
