E3 2016: ‘Batman – The Telltale Series’ – New Screens, Cast Details, Release Window
Telltale Games have released the first screenshots from the upcoming Batman – The Telltale Series, alongside revealing a star-studded cast of voice acting talent who will help bring Gotham’s favourite characters to life.
The newly revealed screens showcase both Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego Batman, alongside Batman’s on and off again ally, Catwoman. Batman – The Telltale Series is running on a new Telltale engine and it shows, with the beautiful visual style mimicking a comic book come to life.
“We’ve been hard at work at Telltale creating an all-new iteration of the iconic Batman story that puts players in the suit of billionaire Bruce Wayne, just as much as it will put them behind the mask, deciding how to carefully navigate a complex drama, rich with action, crime, corruption, and villainy lurking around every corner of Gotham City,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “The complex life and fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne has lent itself to becoming a bold evolution of the signature ‘Telltale’ role-playing experience, and we couldn’t be more excited as we prepare to debut the series to players across the world this summer.”
Telltale has also revealed a the voice-cast that will be taking the role of iconic DC characters throughout the series. Well-known voice actor Troy Baker will be taking the role of Batman (interestingly he also has previously voiced Joker in Batman Arkham Origins), Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale, Enn Reital as Alfred Pennyworth, Murphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon, Laura Baily as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone, with additional characters and voice actors to be revealed throughout the series.
Batman – The Telltale Series is scheduled to launch digitally “this summer” on PC, Mac home consoles and mobile devices. Batman – The Telltale Series will also release as a special ‘Season Pass Disc’ (in a similar vein to Minecraft: Story Mode) allowing players to download all five subsequent episodes as they release.
