The Dark Knight is coming … to Telltale Games. That’s right, faithful Bat-fans, a new episodic series based on the Batman franchise will soon hit us – POW! THWAK! GUH! – with the reveal of Batman: A Telltale Games Series.
Apparently, the company plans to unveil the new series tonight as one of the closing events of the SXSW festival, saying that it will explore Batman’s struggle with “the duality of his own identity, and the struggle of responsibility in saving a city overcome with corruption and villainy.”
Telltale recently gave wegothiscovered.com an idea of what the new Batman game will be like, and insisted that it will be unlike any Batman game yet.
“Our Batman series is looking fantastic. I think it might become one of the best things we’ve ever done. I can’t go into much detail, but the Batman team is amazing and they are really on top of it. It’s not like any other Batman game out there. This game really explores all aspects of Batman, not just the the ‘fighting in the suit’ side of him. There’s a lot of subplots to explore and some really amazing choices that have a big impact on the story being told. I really think it might be the peak of the mountain for us so far.”
Expect the Batman: A Telltale Games Series reveal tonight at 4:30PM PST / 7:30PM EST. If you happen to be in the Austin, Texas area, it will take place at the Austin Convention Center, 531 E 4th St., Ballroom C.
