Fanboys rejoice! Two of the most memorable voices from Batman: The Animated series have been confirmed as taking part as voices for the upcoming Batman title, Batman: Arkham Asylum. Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy were announced by Eidos and Warner Bros. today. Hamill will reprise his Joker role, while Conroy takes on the Dark Knight.

Batman fans around the world will be excited to learn that Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame and leading television and stage actor Kevin Conroy will lend their voices to the Batman: Arkham Asylum videogame, co-published by Eidos, Inc. and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Known as the voice of BATMAN and BRUCE WAYNE for over fifteen years in various animated films and television series, Kevin Conroy will repeat his role as the CAPED CRUSADER, while Mark Hamill, who is also a veteran of many animated Batman properties, will again star as The Joker in the upcoming action-adventure title.

Featuring an original story penned exclusively for the game by famous Batman author, Batman: The Animated Series writer and five-time Emmy award winner, Paul Dini, Batman: Arkham Asylum, developed by Rocksteady Studios, will launch worldwide on Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 and Windows PC in the Summer of 2009. With intensely realistic graphics and a gothic, moody and extraordinarily detailed setting, Batman: Arkham Asylum offers diverse gameplay options to push the envelope for all action, adventure and superhero games in the future. Batman: Arkham Asylum exposes players to a unique, dark and atmospheric adventure taking them to the depths of the ARKHAM ASYLUM.

Everything about this title so far appears to be right on track.

Wise choices.

I need to see some video of Hamill recording Joker lines. You'd think it wouldn't work, but it really does.

This is excellent news.

Could 09 be the year of amazing licensed games? This and Ghostbusters make a strong argument for it.

This might seal the deal for me. Those two will always be Joker and Batman in my eyes (or ears, as it were).

I can't agree more. Both of them are amazing.

*Standing ovation from me*

I think it's hilarious how game developers, and movie directors and producers for that matter, oftentimes want to make things more complicated for themelves than necessary.

This game seems to be sidestepping all those potential problems and one step at a time is climbing the latter to success.

And it's not just the fanboys who will appreciate this. Everyone knows a bad batman and bad joker when they hear one. Why gamble?

Great news. They both are the best voices in my opinion for those characters regardless. As long as the game play is good, this will be a buy for me.

I tried to like it, but got bored quickly. But I really enjoyed Lego Star Wars.
