The Dark Knight Mobile Game Is Here

With only a few days before The Dark Knight film makes its debut in the US, Glu Mobile has released a mobile game with the same title. Developed following a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. (the film's distributor), the Dark Knight mobile game is now available in the States and can be acquired from Glu's website.

Glu's new game will allow you to become a mini Batman who fights crime on the streets of Gotham City. Stealth tactics, special weapons (Batarangs included) and combat moves will be used on order to defeat The Joker himself, the most (in)famous criminal of Gotham.

Besides the new game, Glu will also offer The Dark Knight content suite, including 8 animated screensavers, 31 wallpapers, 4 music tones and 14 voicetones, all of which will bring fans closer to Batman and the other characters of the game/movie.

Talking about the Batman mobile game, Jill Braff, senior vice president, global publishing, Glu, said: "We take pride in making great games and are excited to have worked with Warner Bros. to bring this landmark title to the mobile platform. The action-packed mobile game enables players to use dynamic moves and stealth tactics to take out one of the most notorious antagonists in the world – The Joker. We're delighted to bring The Dark Knight mobile game to Batman fans around the world."

Glu game aside, Warner's The Dark Knight movie has also inspired a special edition of a Nokia clamshell. Released (in the US only) by Verizon and named "Nokia 6205 The Dark Knight", the handset comes with a Batman emblem, a Joker playing card and other stuff especially made for Bat-fans.

Until the new Batman film gets to be released (July 18), the new game and the Nokia handset will be the only things to appease the dark adventure hunger that Batman's US fans might feel.
