Batman: Arkham Origins, the prequel to the superhero games that sent a well aimed batarang up the genre's backside and made it enjoyable again, has released a launch trailer to make the remaining two days (well, it's basically one day now) a complete and utter nightmare for those who've pre-ordered.

As you can see, Black Mask looks like a pretty serious fella. But then, when you're up against a man who dresses up like a flying rodent and scours the city streets after dark looking for trouble, you probably have to up your game as a career criminal.

Batman: Arkham Origins is available on Friday for PS3, Xbox, Wii U and PC. The 3DS/Vita title, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate will also be released on the same day. Friday is going to be expensive.
