Telltale unveils screens from Batman

Telltale’s Batman game was announced at last year’s The Game Awards in December.  Telltale has arrived prior to the start of this year’s E3 to unveil some screenshots of the upcoming adventure game.  Also revealed is the game’s voice cast which features Troy Baker as The Bat himself.  The list of voices joining Troy Baker in the game’s cast is as follows: 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.  Telltale is promising more reveals of characters and cast as the season progresses.

Kevin Bruner, Telltale’s CEO, said the following about their upcoming Batman game:

“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.”

Kevin Conroy Absent as Batman in “Arkham Origins”

Arkham Origins developer WB Montreal has passed on casting Kevin Conroy, who has voiced Batman in multiple titles since Batman: The Animated Series, as Batman in the upcoming videogame.  WB Montreal stated that since Arkham Origins is an origin story featuring Bruce Wayne in his younger years, they’re looking for someone younger to fill the role.  While fans of Conroy’s voice work as the caped crusader will be disappointed, it is understandable that they’d cast an actor with a younger sounding voice to portray Batman in his earlier years.  No news as to whether or not Mark Hamill will reprise his role as The Joker.
