These guys always produce great stories based on iconic franchises.
Now, we can look forward to Batman: A Telltale Games Series , which is scheduled to debut this summer.
As announced at the team's SXSW panel over the weekend (and as reported by GameSpot ), the series will let fans play as Batman and Bruce Wayne, and you'll even be able to choose between the two. Said CEO Kevin Bruner:
"But how cool would it be if you chose to say 'I want to do as much as Bruce as I possibly can be, and we do think that's something we're going to offer people. We expect people to try to play a Batman game with as little Batman as possible."
The story arc will be entirely original and won't be tied to any existing narrative. The Caped Crusader followers can also expect to see characters like Vicki Vale, Alfred Pennyworth, Jim Gordon and Renee Montoya. They didn't talk about villains but we'll definitely see "more than one," which of course is good news.
The series will span five episodes and will utilize a brand new engine. Telltale plans to adopt a very "cinematic approach similar to an R-rated movie" and they've compared it to another of the studio's award-winning series, The Wolf Among Us . Finished Bruner:
"Both technologically and creatively, I think there's a lot of really cool things going into Batman."
