Taking place years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum, the prequel tale called “Batgirl: A Matter of Family” sees Barbara trying to save her dad Commissioner James Gordon, who gets kidnapped by none other than The Clown Prince of Crime himself, The Joker. Together with his mad love interest Harley Quinn as well as his own henchmen, Mr. J has held Gordon hostage at Seagate Amusement Park, and declares that the Commissioner will die if Batman attempts to save him. With no other course of action to take, Batgirl teams up with Robin to take on Joker and his goons to free her dad and end the clown’s diabolical scheme.

Developed by WB Games Montreal, here’s the official trailer for the DLC prequel story.
