Telltale Games take on the Batman Universe was supposed to get its due at E3 this week, but they just couldn't wait to share some new screens and a look at the voice cast who will be taking part.
In a blog post on the Telltale site, the game is being created to look like a "living breathing comic book." Among the voice artists tasked with bringing the characters to life will be Troy Baker as Bruce Wayne, Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent, Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale, Enn Reitel as Alfred, Murphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon, Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman). The episodic game will get more voice reveals as those chapters get closer to release.
Coming sometime this summer for PS4, Xbox One, PC and mobile, the series will have five episodes, although if it is like Minecraft Story Mode, you can probably expect more after the initial season concludes. Telltale said that the game will be shown in private at E3, so we should have an official preview and more details during the show.
"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," Telltale CEO Kevin Bruner said in a prepared statement. "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,"
