Telltale Games Releases First Details About Batman Project
Telltale has become well known for bringing the worlds of comic books and other properties to life. From the Walking Dead, to The Wolf Among Us, to Tales From the Borderlands, the company has been able to create totally unique narrative based games and receive critical acclaim in the process.

The first episode of their latest release, The Walking Dead: Michonne, definitely exemplified everything that makes Telltale great. Now, they've went on record about one of their newest and possibly one of their most anticipated projects of all time: Batman.  

Apparently, the new Batman game will be Rated M, and will focus on telling a story that would be in keeping from what one would expect from an R-rated movie. This isn't necessarily anything new, as the last addition to the Arkham trilogy was Rated M as well. However, with Telltale offering something distinctly different, it wouldn't be unwise to expect this to be rated M for separate reasons.

Likewise, the game will be set in its own universe, totally set apart from any version of Batman that has been in the comics, in films or TV shows, or in other games. This wasn't much of a surprise, but as Telltale has created games in the past that can fit into different comic book continuities (The Wolf Among Us could have very well taken place in the same universe as Bill Willingham's Fables, for instance), they evidently thought it was worth noting.

Likewise, the team said not to expect to see Nightwing or Robin, but there still will be other secondary characters that come into play. Alfred, Detective Gordon, and Vicki Vale were both specifically mentioned, so fans can count on interacting with them during gameplay.

When it comes to the villains, however, the team says that they still want to keep things under wraps until it gets a little bit closer to release time, which is slated for this summer.

As the teaser trailer released earlier this year implied, the game will focus not only on Batman's nighttime activities, but also how his choices as the billionaire and playboy Bruce Wayne affect his role as superhero.

Telltale's Batman project definitely looks exciting, and it'll be interesting to see what type of choices they allow player's to make in game. Then again, it is Batman, and a lot of fans would be just fine with something like this:
