Coming this fall, fans of Rocksteady’s renowned Batman games will have the opportunity to experience the iconic trilogy on a Nintendo Switch. Warner Bros. Games has announced that Batman: Arkham Trilogy will be released on the Switch, bundling together Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Knight, along with all previously-released DLC content. While there is no mention of Switch-specific features, the adaptation is being handled by Turn Me Up Games, known for their involvement in Switch ports such as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 and It Takes Two.
Arkham Asylum takes players into Batman’s struggle against The Joker and his allies as they seize control of the infamous asylum. Arkham City expands the battleground to Gotham, featuring a host of classic villains like Mr. Freeze and The Penguin. Arkham Knight introduces the eponymous supervillain and enriches the experience with open-world gameplay, including the ability to drive the Batmobile.
These games have gained acclaim for their compelling narratives and diverse gameplay, combining combat, stealth, and puzzle-solving elements. The combat system, in particular, shines with rewarding seamless combos and the need to dodge adversaries coming from various directions simultaneously. This series arguably influenced similar fighting mechanics found in games like Spider-Man and Shadow of Mordor. With the inclusion of the voice cast from the animated Batman series, including Mark Hamill and the late Kevin Conroy, it’s evident why fans of the Dark Knight would be drawn to this collection.
While this announcement may not satisfy Switch fans eagerly anticipating Rocksteady’s upcoming Suicide Squad game, it serves as an opportunity to tap into an untapped audience rather than a prelude to the studio’s first new game in almost eight years. Nevertheless, newcomers to the franchise and those seeking to revisit the series will likely find enjoyment in this release. Additionally, for those disappointed by Gotham Knights, the Batman: Arkham Trilogy on Switch could provide a refreshing experience.
