The Trailer for Episode 2 of Batman — The Telltale Series Has Been Released
The first episode of Telltale Games' Batman - The Telltale Series was a huge hit, garnering quite a bit critical acclaim for the company's first drive into the city of Gotham. Focusing on not only Batman, but also the political and social life of Bruce Wayne, Telltale has truly brought something thrilling and original to the world of the Caped Crusader. Now with the second episode slated for a September 20th release, Telltale has finally dropped the trailer for the next installment in their latest series, and it looks like it may even be better than the first.

As the gamers who've been lucky enough to try out episode 1 will already know, episode 2 will deal quite a bit with the recent accusations that Bruce's parents were involved in organized crime. Likewise, it looks like the action is about to be taken to another level with the introduction of the group known as "the Children of Arkham" (which also happens to be the title of this second episode).

There a few things in particular that will likely catch most fans' eyes in this trailer. Namely, Penguin's bird mask. As this version of Penguin has lost his family's fortune, it looks like he's going to be doing things from behind a mask as his own. It's also slightly reminiscent of the Court of Owls, but so far there's been little in the narrative of the game to suggest any connection. Likewise, Batman's mask is damaged in the trailer, which means gamers can probably expect some pretty brutal fights. Then there's the Children of Arkham themselves, which seems like they may be newly created enemies for the Dark Knight. It seems likely that Penguin is orchestrating there attacks, but fans will have to wait until the 20th to know for sure. Just as well, the scene of Batman and Catwoman sticking a landing together seems to suggest that their partnership, only sparks of which were seen in episode one, is about to really take off. Perhaps there'll even be some romance in Batman - The Telltale Series.

Telltale's story driven platform has seemed like a near-perfect fit for a Batman game, and the company's efforts could very well revolutionize the way superhero games are approached in the future. It would be a dream to be able to go to the store and purchase episodic, story based video games of the entire pantheon of DC and Marvel heroes. Hopefully, Batman is only the first of many superheroes to be adapted into a game of this sort, and Telltale's efforts prove not only to be a success, but also the start of a new era for superhero video games.
