After numerous leaks and a mountain of solid evidence, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has finally confirmed the much-anticipated remaster of both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, Batman: Return to Arkham.

As previously thought, Batman: Return to Arkham packages both of Rocksteady Studios’ first Batman titles, complete with all the DLC and updates.

In addition, Return to Arkham will also feature an overhaul to its graphics system used in both titles, moving away from Unreal Engine 3 to the drastically improved Unreal Engine 4. The collection is being handled by Virtuos, a developer that specialises in co-development and ports; leaving Rocksteady to continue uninterrupted on their next big project.

The confirmation comes alongside an announcement trailer, showcasing the game’s brand-spanking new graphics.

Batman: Return to Arkham will release a little later than its expected, arriving on July 29th 2016 for both PS4 and Xbox One. There’s currently no word on a PC release.
