GET SKINNED UP: New Zealand's Mighty Ape Brings Batman Beyond To Arkham City

More than that thingee dropping on Times Square New Years Eve, pop-cult fan's are waiting with baited breath for the release of Batman: Arkham City - and the best online store in New Zealand is coming to the party, with skins that let you romp through the rock 'em, sock em sequel as Batman Beyond, Batman Animated or Geoff Johns' Batman: Earth One!

While other retailers may offer other skins, MightyApe is personally my favourite online store period. They're so quick, their goods are well packaged and the site kept incredibly up-to-date - so seeing them get this kind of exclusive beats everything else hands down.

Plus not only is there not a bod alive that doesn't want to pit Batman Beyond against the evils of modern day Gotham City, the cost is in New Zealand dollars -so you can probably afford to buy six! (You will flip one this way if you do right?). Visit MightyApe after the jump.

  1. How cool would it be to kick ass while looking like the BTAS Batman? It'd be like playing those old BTAS games,but better. If I had to pick though, I'd pick the Earth-1 outfit, as it looks really, really cool. That's cool that they're putting those skins out there. Will there actually be more?

  2. I just love it when I can play through multiple times in multiple costumes. :) Like in Tomb Raider when you can put on shorter and shorter shorts. I think I'd have trouble choosing between BTAS and the Batman Beyond here. So I'd probably have to do both.

  3. Thanks for the great comments guys!

    Yip Dale - there are also places offering a Frank Millar Dark Knight Returns version as well! I would have liked to see some of the Return of Bruce Wayne Batmen make it too - imagine dealing to Two-Face and his cronies as either the Bat-Pirate or Bat-barbarian!

    I'd be set for Batman Beyond Random! I loved that show so pulling off my own futuristic moves would make me one addicted little camper!

  4. I think I'll be checking into those Dan. I think my first choice will be Freddy Kruger for boy's Mortal Kombat game (which is extremely brutal by the way).

  6. It sounds like the voice actor from the reboot (played Rorshach in Watchmen, his name escapes me at the moment) does his voice in the game. It's very well done, by far the creepiest character in MK to date.

  8. No worries Craig - that's awesome - post away! Glad Freddie still is the stuff of Nightmares in any format... will it lead to his own game?
