Good news, the Batman saga will soon be back in the foreground, to the delight of fans of the cult license that marked the 2010s.
Spider-Man has clearly been the hottest superhero on consoles in recent years. Between the 2018 open-world game, the Miles Morales spin-off and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 due October 20 on PS5, Spider-Man fans are in for a treat. However, before he weaved his web on PlayStation, Spider-Man was in the shadow of a DC Comics superhero who vampirized everything in his path: Batman. In the 2010s, the Batman had its heyday thanks to landmark titles developed by Rocksteady. Precisely, the most nostalgic will certainly appreciate rediscovering them on Nintendo Switch.
Three Batman games are coming to Nintendo Switch very soon
We knew since June that Batman was going to make his return soon. Do not dream, the superhero will not return in a new title, but in the Batman: Arkham Trilogy compilation which will bring together the three cult games of the trilogy on Nintendo Switch. Rocksteady announces that the compilation will be released next october 13 on the hybrid console. Players will therefore be able to (re)discover the games Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City and the conclusion Batman Arkham Knight with all their DLCs. Unfortunately, Arkham Origins is still not part of the collection, as it was on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2018.
It should be noted that it is the Turn Me Up Games studio which was responsible for porting this compilation to Nintendo Switch for Warner Bros. Games and not Rockseady itself. We owe him the hybrid console releases of It Take Two, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 and the Borderlands collection. All three games will ironically release a week before Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on PS5. Remember that the physical version of Batman Arkham Trilogy will only include Arkham Asylum on the cartridge and that you will have to download the other two games. In any case, this pack should bring together players who have never touched these legendary titles, but also nostalgic fans, especially those who have been disappointed by Gotham Knights.
For its part, Rocksteady is still at work on Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, scheduled for February 2. You can obviously find Batman in the adventure game, but for the moment, there is therefore no new game dedicated to the superhero in preparation. On the other hand, a new title in VR in the universe of the franchise is currently in development.
