While we don’t know much about the upcoming Batman game from Telltale games, we do know that it will simply be called, “Batman – The Telltale Series.” It was also revealed by Telltale’s Head of Creative Communications, Job J. Stauffer that it would be released this summer.
The game will focus on Bruce and Batman – leaving out Bat characters like Robin, Nightwing, etc. However, fans can expect certain series staples such as Alfred Pennyworth, Vicki Vale, James Gordon, and Renee Montoya. The villains of the game have not been announced and it looks like Telltale is attempting to keep that part of the story a surprise for as long as possible.
The game will very different from previous Batman video games. Telltale has created a non-photorealistic interpretation of the Bat-universe, enhancing engine and technology to deliver a more seamless living comic book art direction. Taking inspiration from the works of over 75 years of artists such as Jim Lee, Greg Capullo, and Neal Adams.
Like some other Telltale series, “Batman – The Telltale Series” is rated M (Mature 17+) rating, and the cinematic approach will feel more akin to an R-rated film.
