The Batman game, an episodic, family-friendly adventure, is based on the hit animated series of the same name. It is now available in North America and Asia Pacific for Wii and Nintendo DS, and will be available across Europe and other PAL territories beginning September 10, 2010.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment are teaming up for the launch.
Batman: The Brave and the Bold the Videogame features the VO talent, action and hilarious dialogue of the cartoon and drops players into an action-packed melee.
Here, Batman partners with Green Lantern Guy Gardner, Robin, Hawkman and Blue Beetle to fight crime against the most notorious villains in the DC Universe.
Playing solo as the Caped Crusader or together with family and friends in two-player co-op mode, gamers will experience the ultimate side-scrolling extravaganza through four episodes of comedic fun, says Warner Bros.
“With the retro style of hand-drawn 2D character animations and fun banter between Batman and the cast of characters, combined with engaging gameplay, fans are going to love to play this game with friends and family,” said Samantha Ryan, senior VP, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
The game offers gamers multiple ways to team up with their favorite DC Comics heroes as they do battle in a variety of locations, from crime-filled alleys and strange alien planets to mysterious laboratories and beyond.
Batman can join forces with playable partner heroes who each have unique gadgets and fighting abilities, as well as call in the aid of jump-in heroes including Aquaman, The Flash, Shazam and Black Lightning, who each perform a super-powered attack to squash armies of enemies.
Adding to the adventure, players can link the Nintendo DS version to the Wii version of the game to unlock Bat-Mite as a playable character who can be controlled with the Nintendo DS. The character can be helpful or mischievous while fighting alongside the heroes.
Developed by WayForward, the game is rated “E10+” by the ESRB and is available on Wii for $39.99 and on Nintendo DS for $29.99.
