Batman - The Telltale Series begins on August 2, Telltale Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have announced. The first episode, titled "Realm of Shadows", will hit the usual Telltale platforms (PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, iOS, and Android) and introduce players to an all-new interpretation of Bruce Wayne and the Dark Knight. If that's not enough to get you shrieking "na-na-na-na-na BATMAAAAN", give this first-ever in-game footage a try.
It definitely has that telltale, er, Telltale visual style, but this is easily the most polished-looking and action-packed project from the adventuresome studio yet. Troy Baker (Joel from The Last of Us and Sam from Uncharted 4) demonstrates some nice vocal duality between Bruce and the Bat there, and your ears do not deceive you - that is Richard McGonagle, the voice of Uncharted's Sully, as mob boss Carmine Falcone. Now if Nolan North could just do a surprise continuation of his Arkham role and show up as The Penguin in episode 2...
We've already tried the first 30 minutes of Batman but that won't make the wait until August 2 any easier. Until then, Telltale has released a new set of screenshots to pore over showing the Batcave, Catwoman, a couple of gadgets, and a whole bunch of dead thugs and guards.
