A press release has been revealed for the newest upcoming DC Comics direct-to-video release, Batman: Assault on Arkham.

This movie, which is based on the Arkham video game saga, takes place between Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum will be released for sale on Blu-ray and DVD on August 12th.

"Gotham is in great danger when the government assembles a group of villains — code named the Suicide Squad — and forces them to break into Arkham Asylum to retrieve top secret information stolen by the Riddler. Things take a turn for the worse when one of the Squad members (Harley Quinn) frees the Joker, who is intent on blowing up Arkham Asylum and Gotham City. Batman must use his super hero wits and strength to thwart the wicked plans of the Joker and the Suicide Squad."

Batman: Assault on Arkham features the voices of Kevin Conroy (Batman), Troy Baker (Joker), Matthew Gray Gubler (Riddler), Neal McDonough (Deadshot), CCH Pounder (Amanda Waller), Greg Ellis (Captain Boomerang) and Giancarlo Esposito (Black Spider).

Special features on the blu-ray include:

Arkham Analyzed: The Secrets Behind the Asylum – This is the documentary that traces the strange, demonic history of the location where horror is mixed with the extremities of the criminally insane. A place where Batman must keep his watchful gaze, to insure that what goes in does not come out .... ever.

The Joker's Queen: Harley Quinn - If The Joker were to have a girlfriend, what would she be like? This featurette covers the story of the deviancy and often provocative side to The Joker’s greatest ally, Harley Quinn.
