Eidos Interactive Ltd, creator of
some of the world’s leading videogame properties, today announced the three

is striving to make the return to the show floor unforgettable.”

Featuring the world-renowned
characters of DC Comics, Batman: Arkham Asylum, developed by Rocksteady Studios,
will be playable on The PLAYSTATION 3, offering show visitors a journey into the
depths of Gotham City’s psychiatric asylum for the criminally insane as Batman
faces his greatest challenge yet. Visitors will have the chance to experience a
selection of the game’s extensive FreeFlow Combat and Invisible Predator
Challenge Maps. Also playable for the first time will be one of the eight maps
that will allow fans to play as The Joker, a character that is playable
exclusively in the PLAYSTATION 3 Challenge Maps that will be made available as a
free download for owners of the game through PlayStation Network. Rated “T” for
Teen, Batman: Arkham Asylum will be co-published in North America by Eidos, Inc.
and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for the Xbox 360, Games for Windows,

throughout Europe August 28.

Mini Ninjas, from IO Interactive,
will take you on a journey to feudal Japan where you’ll join Hiro, Futo, and the
rest of the ninja clan on their biggest ninja adventure ever, as they embark on
an epic and electrifying quest to restore harmony to a world on the brink of
chaos. Rated “E10+” for Everyone 10 and older, Mini Ninjas will be playable on

adventure of insane, adrenaline-fuelled stunts and action. Using the grapple and
parachute combo, Just Cause 2 has no vertical limit and takes to the air like no
other game. Just Cause 2 will be behind closed doors and strictly by appointment
