We have our first look at Telltale’s Batman coming in just before E3 this year. The verdict so far now that we see something tangible? Awesome! It looks and feels just as they describe it, “a living and breathing comic book.”
“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. 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.”
The cast list so far is partial but is a well-rounded cast for this series:
Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale’s vision of Batman will feature an award-winning cast of talent, including Troy Baker in the role of Bruce Wayne,Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent,Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale,Enn Reitel as Alfred Pennyworth,Murphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon,Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone, andLaura Bailey as Selina Kyle. We’ll be able to reveal additional cast and characters as the season progresses.
My question is why we aren’t getting Kevin Conroy to reprise his role as Batman, as much as we love Troy Baker, between him and Nolan North, we aren’t seeing other actors fulfill these major roles. We’ll see how this plays out though, as Troy’s version of the Joker was near perfect.
