Award-winning publisher and developer Telltale Games, in partnership with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, today launched Batman – The Telltale Series on Nintendo Switch in North America. The full first season is available both digitally and at retail for $39.99 USD. All five episodes come already loaded on the retail cartridge. The game will also become available on Switch in Europe and Australia on November 17.
“This will be Telltale’s first Mature-rated title on the system, so we’re really excited not only to have our game on Switch but also to approach a new audience with a game we’re really proud of,” said Executive Producer Sean O’Connor. “We think our unique take on Batman is a great way to introduce Nintendo fans to Telltale’s style of storytelling. It’s also nice that returning fans will be able to experience the game on a console they can take with them everywhere.”
Batman – The Telltale Series gives players the opportunity to role-play as both Bruce Wayne and Batman in a fresh take on Batman canon. In the series’ opening episode, ‘Realm of Shadows,’ Bruce Wayne is forced to question everything he thought he knew about his identity when he discovers his father was in fact a ruthless crime boss. As both Bruce and Batman, players must negotiate harsh political turmoil and prevent Gotham City from descending into chaos while digging into the truth about the Wayne family’s sordid past.
