A Familiar Face Emerges in New Trailer for Batman: The Telltale Series

If you’ve been playing through Batman: The Telltale Series like I have, then you know things aren’t going so well for Bruce Wayne lately. After discovering that the threat of the Children of Arkham lay much closer than he realized, the next chapter in the series picks up with Wayne himself being committed to Arkham–and running into one of the most popular characters in Batman canon.

That’s right: the Joker is finally showing up in Telltale’s Batman game. We’ve already seen the game’s in-universe versions of villains like the Penguin (in this, Oswald Cobblepot is much younger and a childhood friend of Bruce Wayne) and Two-Face (mayor-elect Harvey Dent, who’s also a friend to Bruce IRL but seems to be going through something after suffering a traumatic injury). Depending on how you’ve played the game as Batman so far, Bruce may also be getting a whole lot closer to Selina Kyle’s Catwoman. (I’m a BatCat shipper, I can’t deny it, so you best believe they went there in my playthrough.)

The trailer for the latest chapter reveals that Episode 4 will be released next week, on November 22nd–so that gives you plenty of time to finish it up before settling in to eat some turkey and stuffing (or however you may be choosing to celebrate Thanksgiving this year).

I’ve been really enjoying this game overall, so I’m very much awaiting the next episode. For those of you who have been diving in: which big choices have you made so far? How are you choosing to play Bruce and Batman? Are you looking forward to Bruce going up against the Joker in the heart of Arkham’s darkness?
