Teltale Games has released the first trailer for Batman: The Telltale Series, and just in time for San Diego Comic-Con.

The trailer introduces us to Harvey Dent, Vicky Vale, Carmine Falcone, Alfred, and of course, Bruce Wayne and Batman, who is voiced by Troy Baker. 

We previously learned Batman: The Telltale Series would be released across digital platforms next month, while its disc-based version will be available at retailers in September.

We also learned back at E3 2016 Telltale Games is aiming to rethink the entire Batman series as Bruce Wayne is expected to play as large a role as the caped crusader himself. “In fact, you'll be spending as much time as Bruce Wayne in our game as Batman,” Telltale Games’ head of marketing Richard Iggo told us during our time with the demo.

Batman: The Telltale Series is scheduled to release on August 2 on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, iOS, and Android across various digital marketplaces. Those looking for a retail copy of the game will have to wait until September 13.

      Very unimpressed. Maybe its because we have had so many Batman games already, but this just looks like any other Telltale game. Will wait for reviews and such, but yea, TTG just has not been doing it for me anymore. Which is a bummer. Granted if they gave us The Wolf Among Us S2 I'd be all in.

        It could be interesting if it plays up the detective side of Batman, rather than focusing on the combat like all the other ones. Wolf Among Us had a really interesting investigation mechanic in the first couple episodes, which they sadly dropped in favor of more action as the season went on. I'd love for them to bring that back, hopefully in another season of Wolf Among Us, but I'd take it in another series as well.

          Honestly this would be the ONLY way to make a Batman Telltale game to work. I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt, but I really hope there wasn't too much outside influence to make it more of an action game.

        Their other series are done except Minecraft which will be done soon.

        They've announced Series 3 of The Walking Dead, A Marvel game, Game of Thrones series 2, and Batman. Thats their line up for the next two years.

            They are. The Wolf among us series 1 was finished almost 2 years ago and Tales from the Borderlands series 1 finished last october. They could make another series with those IPs but I doubt it since they announced the company was focusing on "multimedia IPs." Basically saying they must at least have TV and or film adaptations currently or in the works.

              But.... Wolf Among Us ended on a cliffhanger. They always said another Season was coming and that's pretty bullshit if that's not the case.

                So did their Back to the Future game. It feels like they're really just chasing the next license that's dangling a paycheck.

                Also, Nick Breckon dropped that he left Telltale last Idle Thumbs.

                I agree but those are the facts.
