Telltale have revealed the first screens from their upcoming take on the world of Batman, and it’s looking oh so Telltale. The game will revolve around the exploits of both Batman and Bruce Wayne, and will attempt to capture the character as a whole as opposed to just the guy in the suit who punches things a lot. Telltale describes it in their press release:
“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,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “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.”
Featuring voiceover wunderkind Troy Baker as both Bats and Bruce, check out the rest of the voice cast and the characters we can expect to see in the game here:
“Telltale’s vision of Batman will feature an award-winning cast of talent, including Troy Baker in the role of Bruce Wayne, 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, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle. Additional cast and characters will be revealed as the season progresses.”
Batman – The Telltale Series is scheduled for release later this year.
