Rocksteady has released the gameplay launch trailer for Batman: Arkham Trilogy on Nintendo Switch. The package, which bundles three critically acclaimed Batman games in Arkham Asylum, Arkham City and Arkham Knight, is set to launch this Friday on 1 December. If you want to see the first glimpse of each title’s gameplay running on Switch, you’ve come to the right place.
Batman: Arkham Trilogy marks the first time that Rocksteady’s award-winning collection of Batman games arrives on Nintendo Switch. The gameplay launch trailer gives players a good idea of how it will look on the Switch hardware and hopefully, it will perform smoothly too – especially Arkham Knight which featured incredible visuals for 2015 that still hold up quite well today.
The description of Batman: Arkham Trilogy provided by Nintendo reads:
“Become Gotham City’s ultimate protector across the iconic Batman: Arkham Trilogy. Face off against notorious DC Super-Villains: The Joker, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, and more in Batman: Arkham Asylum. Step into the shadows of Batman: Arkham City’s open world, the new maximum security ‘home’ for thugs, gangsters, and insane criminal masterminds. In Batman: Arkham Knight, tear through the streets of Gotham and take on the ultimate threat in the trilogy’s epic conclusion.”
Last month, Rocksteady accidentally updated Arkham Knight to include Robert Pattinson’s now-iconic batsuit seen in the 2022 movie, The Batman. The Nintendo Switch version now confirms that Pattinson’s batsuit will be available not only on Switch, but also as a free update to other platforms, though it will arrive on PlayStation, Xbox and PC at a later date. The suit can be used in Arkham Knight.
In other Batman-related news, fans have rallied for The Boys and Supernatural actor Jensen Ackles to potentially play Batman in an upcoming DC movie. Ackles is already synonymous with the Batman franchise as he not only voiced Red Hood in the animated movie Batman: Under the Red Hood, bat also voiced the caped crusader himself in the two-part animated saga, Batman: The Long Halloween.
Batman: Arkham Trilogy arrives on Nintendo Switch on 1 December 2023. Check out the gameplay launch trailer below:
