It looks like the iPhone is getting its own version of Batman: Arkham City and in it you'll get a chance to beat the other eye out of Slade "Deathstroke" Wilson.

IGN points out that Batman: Arkham City Lockdown popped up on New Zealand's iTunes moments ago, meaning it will likely make an appearance here in the U.S. by tomorrow.


Here's the official description of the game, developed by NetherRealm Studios using the Unreal Engine:

"The inmates have escaped and Batman has his hands full defeating an army of henchmen and some of his most iconic villains. Scour the rooftops and the seedy underbelly of Gotham City through a series of one-on-one battles with the Joker, Two-Face and more, as well as the Batman: Arkham City Lockdown exclusive – Deathstroke. Choose from several Batman skins and power-ups as you punch, kick and combo your way to cleaning up Gotham City."

The images seems to show a tap and swipe brawler with the ability to unlock new powers and items as well as some sweet new for THE BATMAN. The fact that it uses the Unreal Engine, the same one that delivers the graphically impressive Infinity Blade games, means it's pretty going to be pretty fantastic looking.

Can't wait to check this out tomorrow. We'll make sure to write it up once we get our hands on it.
