About Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu:
A revolutionary new era in Batman history begins with the introduction of the new character, Sin Tzu. Beyond madness, beyond evil, Sin Tzu is an enemy unlike Batman has ever battled. He is a master in the deadly art of war, driven by a single desire: to conquer. Scouring the world in search of only the worthiest adversaries, Sin Tzu has descended upon Gotham City and marshaled the infamous villains Bane, Clayface and Scarecrow into a superior fighting force against the Caped Crusader. In turn, Batman has called upon his allies Robin, Nightwing and Batgirl to stem the tide of this new rising evil.
Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu will be in shipped to retail in October on all next-generation platforms.
