Telltale Games has released the first images from Batman, their episodic point-and-click take on the Dark Knight.
They’ve also released more information on the game, including who will be voicing the characters. The cast is led by none other than Troy Baker, best known for voicing Joel in The Last of Us and Booker in BioShock Infinite, who takes on the role of Bruce Wayne. Baker is no stranger to the franchise having taken on the difficult task of voicing Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins, which had previously been handled by fan-favorite Mark Hamill, voicing Two-Face in Batman: Arkham Knight, and more. It’s not the first time he’s played this character either; he also voiced Batman in various LEGO animated and video game titles.

The Telltale crew is down in Los Angeles for the annual E3 Gaming Expo… and today we can share the very first screens and cast details for the upcoming BATMAN – The Telltale Series ahead of its worldwide debut this summer!
The episodic series will premiere digitally on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices, and we’ll be showing it privately to guests at E3 this coming week. The series will also be available on game consoles as a special ‘Season Pass Disc’ which will be available at retailers across North America, Latin America, and Europe later this summer, granting access to the five episode season as it becomes available for download.
Our CEO and Co-Founder Kevin Bruner had this to say about the upcoming series: “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. 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.
Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale’s vision of Batman will feature an award-winning cast of talent, including Troy Baker in the role of Bruce Wayne, Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent, Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale, Enn Reitel as Alfred Pennyworth, Murphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon, Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle. We’ll be able to reveal additional cast and characters as the season progresses.
