The first trailer for Batman – The Telltale Series has been released! After tackling the political intrigues of the Seven Kingdoms with their Game of Thrones episode game, and the zombie survival drama of The Walking Dead, Telltale has set its sights on one of the greatest superheroes ever, Batman.
Their newest episodic game will put players in Bruce Wayne’s suit, as well as the Dark Knight’s cowl and cape, and will feature the voices of Troy Baker as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent, Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale, Enn Reitel as Alfred Pennyworth, Murphy Guyer as Lt. James Gordon, Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.
Just last month, Telltale’s CEO Kevin Bruner said of the upcoming game:
“We've been hard at work at Telltale creating an all-new iteration of the iconic Batman story that puts players in the suit of billionaire Bruce Wayne, just as much as it will put them behind the mask, deciding how to carefully navigate a complex drama, rich with action, crime, corruption, and villainy lurking around every corner of Gotham City. The complex life and fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne has lent itself to becoming a bold evolution of the signature 'Tellltale' role-playing experience, and we couldn't be more excited as we prepare to debut the series to players across the world this summer.”
The first episode, “Realm of Shadows,” will be available for digital download on Aug. 2 for PC/Mac, and iOS/Android devices. The series will then be released in stores on Sept. 13, packaged as a “Season Pass Disc,” which'll include the first of five episodes of the season with access to the following four as soon as they become available to download.
