Clowns are scary and anybody who says they aren't is hiding childhood fears in a very tightly sealed box, deep down in their bellies. Just ask Batman. He's forever fending off painted up foes in clown get up.
If these images are anything to go by then the caped crusader has the same problem on his hands in new game Batman: Arkham City.
Warner Bros have released this new batch of shots from the sequel to the BAFTA award-winning Batman: Arkham Asylum. Developed by Rocksteady Studios and set inside the heavily fortified walls of a district in the heart of Gotham City, Batman: Arkham City sends players into the new maximum security zone for all of Gotham City’s not so nice clowns and killers. Best of luck with that, then.
The game will be available next year.
