Telltale Games, the studio behind the critically acclaimed Walking Dead series of adventure games has just announced their newest license: Batman!
In a game that will be coming to home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile platforms, Telltale will be producing an episodic adventure starring the Caped Crusader that was revealed at tonight’s Game Awards in Los Angeles:
“At Telltale, we’ve been honored to bring our unique approach to interactive storytelling to some of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll soon be exploring what it means to be Batman in an all-new series starting next year,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “This iteration of Batman will give fans a first-hand opportunity to dive deeper into the complex life and mind of Bruce Wayne, the duality of his own identity, and the struggle of responsibility in saving a city overcome with corruption and villainy.”
The new game has yet to be titled, but it’s an exciting addition to the already rich lineup from the game developer that also includes Game of Thrones, Tales from the Borderlands, Minecraft, and (my personal favorite) The Wolf Among Us, based off the DC/Vertigo Fables series.
I grew up loving adventure games like King’s Quest and Quest for Glory, so this is two flavors that taste pretty great together in my eyes.
