Harley Quinn is a tough-talking dame who is fast on the trigger, and she and Bat-enemy the Joker share a mad love. In this new clip from Telltale Games’ Batman: The Enemy Within, the Joker finally introduces Batman to the woman who stole his villainous heart.

The exciting part about Telltale Games’ version of the Dark Knight is you get to play as both Batman AND his alter-ego Bruce (or is it the other way around?) and get to see how Bruce/Bats interacts with these rogues.

Telltale Games’ offers story-driven point-and-click adventures of properties like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. And to further its story-driven theme, Telltales’ games are released in seasons and episodes. Season 2, The Enemy Within, is currently underway.

This clip gives us a taste of what we enjoy about Telltale’s work: fabulous dialog and games that develop character. At one point, when the Joker says he’s in love, one of Bruce’s potential responses is, “With me?” Watch what happens.

Also, this game tweaks the dynamics of their relationship. Rather than the historic role of Harley being smitten with a frankly abusive Joker, here, the Joker is smitten with Harley. And she’s very much the driver in the Joker's clown car.

We’re looking forward to seeing more of Harley on October 3, when the next episode is released.
