Now we know the official name for the upcoming interactive Batman game. According to Job J Stauffer, Head of Creative Communications at Telltale, the game will be called BATMAN: The Telltale Series. Not an original name but it does somewhat follow the Telltale standard of game naming. We are really excited to play this title and Telltale confirmed that they will demo the game at E3 between June 14 – 16.
By next week, we should have more information about its content, release date and possibly a gameplay video. Telltale plans to reveal ”Wayne Manor” at E3’s convention which already got us hyped. Expected release date is this summer but a precise date will be announced soon. In the game, Bruce’s actions will have consequences on Batman & vice versa. This will leave the player in a dilemma when making tough decisions.
Moreover, there will be situations presented where you choose to approach them as Batman or Bruce, and each approach results in a different consequence. Interestingly, the game will take place in current times rather than in the existing ones found in the Batman comics, films, or games. This is a pure Batman experience and will focus on the main character only, rather than on his associates, such as Robin. Of course, we do expect to see major characters such as Alfred Pennyworth, James Gordon, and recurring characters, but Bruce & Batman will be the center of your decision making process.
Bruce will have personal relationships in the game and there will be iconic villains as well, but the villains will be introduced at a later time. Telltale is also working on a non-photorealistic interpretation of the Batman universe to deliver a seamless living comic book art direction with the latest technology available. This is being performed under the guidance of legendary artists such as Jim Lee, Greg Capullo and Neal Adams. According to reports, the game will be released at an M (Mature 17+) rating.
