Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition is a conversion of Batman: Arkham City for the Wii U platform. Next to the base game it incorporates all the DLC previously featured in Batman: Arkham City - Game of the Year Edition:Exclusive to this version is the addition of the Battle Armored Tech (B.A.T.) mode. It includes upgrades suits for both Batman and Catwoman providing an additional power-up to build up kinetic energy during combat. When full, a B.A.T. mode can be entered with a heightened sense of the enemy locations and more damage can be dealt. It is activated by pressing the left and right analogue sticks simultaneously. The upgraded suits and the mode are introduced through a video embedded in the story.

The GamePad can be used to display the mini-map with objectives and waypoints. It also displays full character bios. Unique to this edition is the sonar radar used to scan the surroundings for enemies. Further touch screen use includes quick taps to access upgrades and to organize a custom gadget load out. When the batarang is thrown, the GamePad screen follows its course and the player can alter the direction by tilting the device. The Investigation mode has been tuned through the GamePad. The screen is calibrated to the TV and then the camera can be moved around in any direction to scan the environment by moving the device. When using the cryptographic sequencer it is displayed in full on the GamePad screen as a touch-based mini-game.
