by November 17th, 2017

Award-winning publisher and developer Telltale Games, in partnership with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, today announced that Batman – The Telltale Series is now available on Nintendo Switch across all regions. 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.

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.

Batman – The Telltale Series was praised by fans and critics alike, with The Verge proclaiming it’s “among Telltale’s best work to date” while emphasizing “it’s not just Batman, it’s your Batman.” Game Informer called it “one of the best experiences by Telltale in recent memory, period” while Heavy.com wrote that Telltale “truly knocked it out of the park.” Digital Spy deemed it “the freshest Dark Knight take we’ve seen in years,” which io9 echoed, calling Telltale’s Batman “video games’ best Bruce Wayne ever.”

Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale’s vision of Batman features an award-winning cast of talent, including Troy Baker in the role of Bruce WayneTravis Willingham as Harvey DentErin Yvette as Vicki ValeEnn Reitel as Alfred PennyworthMurphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon, Richard McGonagle as Carmine FalconeJason Spisak as Oswald CobblepotDave Fennoy as Lucius FoxAnthony Ingruber as John Doe, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle.

Batman – The Telltale Series is a standalone product separate from the second season, Batman: The Enemy Within. It is currently available at retailers across North America on a special ‘Season Pass Disc’ for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. The disc includes the first episode of the season, as well as access to download all subsequent episodes through an online connection.
