Telltale has been promising for several days now that the reveal of their latest episodic series, Batman
, would be arriving soon. The Batsignal has been lit, apparently, because the game's debut screenshots have arrived. Batman - The Telltale Series
will debut this summer both digitally and, like Minecraft: Story Mode
, on disc, which will act as a sort of physical season pass, granting players each of the five new episodes as they become available.
Telltale's CEO Kevin Bruner is clearly excited:
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 'Telltale' 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 company is working once again with some of the biggest names in video game VO, some of whom are also seasoned Telltale alums.
- Troy Baker as Bruce Wayne/Batman
- Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent
- Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale
- Enn Reitel as Alfred Pennyworth
- Murphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon
- Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone
- Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle
With the voice cast announced, a few details can be inferred. We get a peek at the rogues gallery coming to this brand new story of the Dark Knight. Secondly, based on Lieutenant
Gordon's rank, we can assume this is a somewhat younger Batman. More Big Bads kind of feel inevitable, too, don't they? Batman - The Telltale Series
is set to premiere this summer "on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices".
