Blue Goggles Films has put together a bit of a love letter/holiday gift to the makers and fans of Batman: Arkham City with “A Very Arkham City Christmas,” a holiday tale that’s set in the universe of the popular game.
In the short film, writer/director Ben Moody shows us a story in which we see two of The Penguin’s henchman who try to share a Christmas moment with each other after they’ve escaped from a beatdown from The Bat, or so they think. Things don’t go quite as well as they planned, however. In Arkham City, you can never escape The Dark Knight.
This video is hilarious and a lot of fun, so make sure to check out the full embedded short film here below.
The idea of putting a face on the faceless henchmen of this game is hilarious to me, and I would absolutely love to see some sort of web series based on these two characters going from one gang to another. It’s something that I think would be a lot of fun to see, and I hope Blue Goggles recognizes this and decides to make more.
But if you’d like to see some other non-Arkham City but still video game-themed videos from this team, make sure to check out their YouTube Channel.
