Last year, the Arkham series of Batman games came to an end with Batman: Arkham Knight. While there's no future installments coming in the series of games (as far as we know at least), Warner Bros. Interactive has announced the next best thing -- a remastered version of the first two games in the trilogy, making their debut for the first time ever on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

The remastered bundled, officially titled Batman: Return to Arkham, has been rumored around the internet for months now, with the first official rumor coming in early April, and continuing since. We've seen leaks, details, retail scans, and much more, but now it has been made official - Return to Arkham will be hitting stores on July 29.

Retailed at $49.99, the bundle will include both the original Arkham Asylum and its sequel Arkham City, newly remastered with "upgraded models, environments, lighting, effects and shaders." The bundle will also include all the DLC featured in both games. The announcement trailer below illustrates some of the graphic enhancements players will see for both Asylum and City.

Not featured in the bundle is the final game in the trilogy, Arkham Knight. Nor is Arkham Origins, a very underrated game not made by Rocksteady. To get a hold of those games, you'll have to pay separately. Still though, the opportunity to have all of Rocksteady's epic trilogy on one console is a golden one.
