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.
