First details of Telltale's episodic Batman game to be revealed on March 18

If you want to be among the first to learn details about Telltale's upcoming episodic game featuring Batman, mark March 18 on your calendar. The developer will open up with the first concrete information on the game as part of a SXSW Festival panel that will be streamed on Twitch starting at 5:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Telltale's blog post hints that the game will deal with "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." Kotaku Australia got a few more hints from Telltale's CEO Kevin Bruner:

"Our Batman series is looking fantastic. I think it might become one of the best things we've ever done. I can't go into much detail, but the Batman team is amazing and they are really on top of it. It's not like any other Batman game out there. This game really explores all aspects of Batman, not just the the "fighting in the suit" side of him. There's a lot of subplots to explore and some really amazing choices that have a big impact on the story being told. I really think it might be the peak of the mountain for us so far."

Telltale just started a new three-part episodic series, The Walking Dead: Michonne, and has an unannounced project based on the Marvel Comics universe still in the works, along with a second "season" of its Game of Thrones series.

  • Not a huge Telltale fan..... 
  • Telltale makes great games story-wise. Looking forward to it !
  • Boooooo! Where the hell is The Walking Dead season 3 and The Wolf Among Us season 2!?
  • While I disagree on the boooo part, I agree on the rest. Where is the walking dead 3 and The Wolf Among Us sequel?
  • This will be awesome. I love the Telltale games, especially The Walking Dead.
  • Looking forward to this. I can appreciate that there's a lot of Batman fighting games, but TellTale historically gives us something a bit more interesting. I hope that trend continues.  Loved Sam & Max and Back to the Future from them (barring some wonky controls at times) and hoping for more story with the Batman game.
  • I have mixed feelings. While I loved The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, I can't imagine seeing Batmans story in a typical telltale-ish way. Sure the Batman universe has a deep and dark story which would be awesome to be told especially from the master of storytelling. But there are some stories shouldn't be told the way telltale do. Nevertheless I will give it a try and am looking forward to it.
  • Obviously not on the Windows Phone platform unfortunately. I would've thought ever since the Minecraft Story Mode that Telltale would start putting their games on WP Posted via the Windows Central Beta App for my Lumia 950 XL
