Editor's website (Genesis):
    Precious metals are mysteriously missing from Gotham City mines. One of these metals has a highly toxic composition which is used to build explosives for missiles. Gotham City police have exhausted their resources and frantically call to Batman for help. He knows this scheme can only be the insane working of one criminal mastermind... The Joker seeks revenge! Batman must follow the trail leading to the location of the Joker's secret hideaway before it's too late. It won't be easy though. The Caped Crusader must use his new arsenal of weapons to foil The Joker's evil henchmen and rely on his acrobatic strength to overcome the obstacles that block his way. Gotham City is relying on you to stop the revenge of The Joker!

Back of Box - NES (US):

    THE JOKER IS BACK. AND HE'S THE ONLY ONE SMILING.

    The seedy underworld is crawling with criminals. Even worse –THE JOKER is back on top of 'em all! Law and order means nothing...Until now.

    Because BATMAN is here –and the action is hotter than ever! Ear-crunching sound effects. Pulse quickening music. Graphics that are as hot as 16-bit.

    And this time, BATMAN hits fast and hard. Flying, leaping, and sliding to attack! And striking at the heart of THE JOKER.

    The CAPED CRUSADER™ has a totally new arsenal at his command: Batarang™, Crossbow, Sonic Neutralizer. He's even got a superfueled jetpack. And even more powerful weapons at the touch of a button.

    BATMAN has got to use all of his power. Because this world is a very dark place, and you never know where THE JOKER is hiding!
