Exciting news for fans of the Caped Crusader and Nintendo Switch owners! Rocksteady, the game developer behind the beloved Batman: Arkham series, has just unveiled the much-anticipated release date for the Nintendo Switch version of the trilogy. Mark your calendars for October 13th, as that’s the day when the Bat-Signal will shine on the Switch for the very first time.
This release marks a significant moment, as it’s the first occasion that the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham Trilogy makes its way to Nintendo’s gaming platform.
The trilogy bundles together three iconic titles: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Knight, each offering players a chance to step into the shoes of Gotham’s legendary Dark Knight.
What’s more, the complete package includes all downloadable content (DLC), ensuring that players experience the full breadth of Batman’s adventures.
New Horizons for Gotham’s Hero
The release date revelation came alongside the unveiling of new artwork by talented illustrator Christian Ward, giving fans a sneak peek into the visually captivating world of the trilogy. The news was broadcasted by Rocksteady on their official channels, building excitement among the gaming community.
The Batman: Arkham series has garnered widespread acclaim and is widely regarded as the pinnacle of superhero gaming. Each installment has been met with positive reception, earning the titles the esteemed position of being among the best Batman-themed games to date.
A Trio of Excellence
While the Batman: Arkham Trilogy stands tall, it’s important to note that it doesn’t encompass Batman: Arkham Origins. This separate title, set in the same universe, was developed by WB Montreal instead of Rocksteady. Consequently, it didn’t enjoy the same level of favor as the main trilogy.
Notably, the trilogy’s quality shines brightly when compared to last year’s Gotham Knights, another game developed by WB Montreal. While Gotham Knights didn’t quite achieve the same level of success as its Arkham predecessors, the main trilogy’s enduring popularity remains undisputed.
Looking Beyond: Rocksteady’s Ongoing Pursuits
While fans eagerly anticipate diving back into the streets of Gotham through the Batman: Arkham Trilogy, Rocksteady has been hard at work on another project: Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League.
Although this new venture was initially expected to debut earlier, its release has been postponed until the upcoming year. The wait, no doubt, will only heighten the excitement for what promises to be an electrifying addition to the superhero gaming landscape.
In conclusion, the long-awaited arrival of the Batman: Arkham Trilogy on Nintendo Switch is a cause for celebration among both fans and Switch owners.
As the 13th of October approaches, anticipation mounts for the chance to relive Batman’s legendary adventures on a new platform. Until then, fans can continue to embrace the legacy of the Dark Knight in one of gaming’s most iconic trilogies.
