Telltale Games reveal the first screens and cast details for Batman – The Telltale Series.
Firstly, the comic book look is lovely. Telltale’s engine maybe getting on a bit but, in screens at least, this looks like a good, no nonsense take on the Dark Knight.
The game features an impressive array of voice 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. Further characters and casting details will be announced as the season progresses.
Kevin Bruner, CEO of Telltale Games, called on the Batphone to say this:
“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.”
Batman – The Telltale Series will release digitally on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices this summer. It will also be available on consoles as a special ‘Season Pass Disc’ which will be available at retailers and will grant access to the five episode season as it becomes available for download.
Those attending E3 this week will also get a chance for an early hands on. To the games expo, Robin.
