The Riddler and The Penguin may get increased stage-time in Batman: Arkham City, but the latest trailer for Rocksteady's upcoming game is all about our old friend The Joker. Looking quite a bit the worse for wear after his misadventures in Arkham Asylum, the J-Man sounds like he's enacting another big, complicated plan to ensnare the Bat. Big surprise, that.

Also featured: a healthy dose of Harley Quinn's accent, some giant goon named "Mr. Hammer," and some fairly serious-looking lava and explosions.

Batman: "There's nothing wrong with you."

Joker: "Nice of you to say, but you of all people should know, there's plenty wrong with me."
