Batman: Arkham Trilogy

Batman: Arkham Trilogy Arrives On Switch In October

Rocksteady has announced the Batman: Arkham Trilogy comes to Nintendo Switch on Friday, October 13. The port is being handled by Turn Me Up Games, the team behind porting Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 and It Takes Two on Switch.

The bundle includes Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Knight and includes all expansions and content in the package. Sadly though, the cartridge only comes with Arkham Asylum on it. Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Knight will require an online connection to download and install both titles when the Batman: Arkham Trilogy cartridge is inserted into the Switch.

Batman: Arkham Asylum occurs primarily within the walls of Arkham Asylum, Gotham’s infamous psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane. Batman is trapped on the island after the Joker orchestrates a takeover, and he must navigate through the asylum, facing various villains and uncovering the Joker’s sinister plan.

Batman: Arkham City expands the playable area to an open-world environment, as a section of Gotham is walled off and transformed into a massive, chaotic prison city known as Arkham City. Batman must investigate the situation and prevent the chaos orchestrated by various villains, including the Joker, Two-Face, and Hugo Strange.

Batman: Arkham Knight introduces the titular villain who seems to have a deep connection to Batman’s past. The game features an expanded open-world Gotham City, the Batmobile as a playable vehicle, and an emphasis on the consequences of Batman’s actions as he battles Arkham Knight and Scarecrow.

For now, the Arkham Trilogy will help make the wait for Rocksteady Studios Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League in February 2024 a bit easier, right? It was delayed because of the poor reception, so it’s probably delayed for the best.
