A Demo For The Hotly Anticipated Batman: Arkham Asylum Will Be Unleashed This Week.

Strangely it won't come as a part of the usual Thursday update, presumably to keep all things fair between the various platforms the game is being released on (the XBOX 360's online marketplace gets updated on Wednesday opposed to the PSN's Thursday).

The demo will deal with the opening portion of the game where Batman and Commissioner Gordon attempt to return the Joker to Arkham Asylum. The demo sounds like it's shaping up to be a well thought out teaser for the full game and we respect Eidos' principles of a releasing a demo way before release (hey, these things can backfire).

The full game lands on August 25th in the US and 28th in Europe.
