Telltale Games has just tossed up a brilliant new launch trailer for Batman: The Enemy Within, presenting the first chapter of Season 2 for its compelling Batman: The Telltale Series game series that debuted last summer with five punch-packed episodes.

Here's the official synopsis:

In this latest chapter from the award-winning studio behind Batman – The Telltale Series, both halves of the Dark Knight’s dual identity will be forced into precarious new roles. The Riddler has returned to terrorize Gotham City, but his gruesome puzzles merely foreshadow an even greater crisis. With the arrival of a ruthless federal agent and the return of a still nascent Joker, Batman must navigate uneasy alliances while Bruce Wayne undertakes a perilous series of deceptions.

“Fan feedback has always been a crucial part of our development process, and we’ve heard our fans loud and clear: they want longer episodes with more variety, " explained chief writer James Windeler. "This premiere episode alone clocks in at over two hours in length, and includes more puzzles, more dynamic choices in the middle of the action, and more consequence to each choice as you carefully navigate the character relationships. Throughout all Telltale Games, it can often be difficult to understand how relationships change or are affected until later episodes (or even a second play-through), so we’ve also begun to implement all-new stats screens at the end of each episode that will allow players to see where they stand with their favorite characters like Jim Gordon, Amanda Waller, and so forth.”

First unveiled last month at San Diego Comic-Con, Telltale's five-episode sophomore season strikes on August 8 for Android, iOS, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows. Additional chapters will be available roughly each month.
