First Batman: The Telltale Series trailer teases dense, Wayne-centric plot

The World Premiere trailer for Telltale’s upcoming Batman adventure released overnight. The trailer provides a glimpse of how the five-episode series will tackle one of comics’ most beloved and iconic characters when it arrives early next month. Hit the jump to see it for yourself.

The trailer features Alfred Pennyworth (Enn Reitel, Metal Gear Solid 4, Skyrim) begging Bruce Wayne (Troy Baker, Uncharted 4, The Last of Us) not to lose himself within the Batsuit. Meanwhile, Harvey Dent (Travis Willingham, Batman: Bad BloodStreet Fighter VFull Metal Alchemist) has entered Gotham’s mayoral race on a positive note, but Vicki Vale (Erin Yvette, The Wolf Among Us, Oxenfree) thinks he might have ties to the Falcone crime family headed by Carmine Falcone (Richard McGonagle, Uncharted 4, Rules of Engagement). Batman will need to work with Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Murphy Guyer, Red Dead Redemption) to put a stop to Gotham’s latest crime epidemic, while tangling with Catwoman (Laura Bailey, Uncharted 4, literally everything else you love) who is using the confusion to loot everything in sight.

The game’s voice cast, as you can see, is a collection of some of gaming industry’s greatest talents. While T-Bakes is one of the most dazzling talents in the industry, we’re also no strangers to Laura and Travis, and you can check out our love letter to their web series Critical Role right here.

The game’s first episode, “Realm of Shadows”, is set to drop digitally on August 2 on just about every platform there is. For those who prefer to pick up the disc, you’ll be able to do so at your nearest retailer on September 16. The disc version will function as a Season Pass, containing the first episode and access to the remaining four as they become available.

We’ll be seeing more of Batman: The Telltale Series at San Diego Comic-Con this week, including live gameplay, so keep your eyes peeled.

One last thing, we can’t get enough of that Batman: The Animated Series-inspired logo. Our hopes for this one are high indeed.
