Batman: Arkham Trilogy’ is coming to Nintendo

Warner Bros. Games announced in June that Batman: Arkham Trilogy will be available for Nintendo Switch this autumn, and we now have an actual date. The package comprising Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, andi am the Batman: Arkham Knight, as well as their respective expansions, will be available on Switch on October 13th.

Turn Me Up Games (which also worked on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 and It Takes Two for the Switch) handled the series’ ports. In 2009, Batman: Arkham Asylum launched the trilogy with a unique plot that pitted the Caped Crusader against several of his most deadly adversaries. The Joker plots to take over Arkham Asylum, and Batman must contend with Harley Quinn, Bane, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy, and Scarecrow.

The 2011 sequel, Batman: Arkham City, increases the scope to a larger region of Gotham and introduces some more famous villains such as Mr. Freeze, Two-Face, and The Penguin. In 2015, Rocksteady released Batman: Arkham Knight, which has a transformable Batmobile that you can drive across the open world.

Three games feature meaty, brawling action, but stealth and puzzle features help add some diversity. If you haven’t played these games previously and are a fan of the Dark Knight, they’re worth a look, but it’s worth remembering that they’ll probably be cheaper on other platforms over the next few months.

In either event, Batman’s: Arkham Trilogy (whether you’re new to the series or reliving the three games) may help you pass the time until Rocksteady’s next game, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, is out. Following a negative reaction to an extended look at gameplay, Rocksteady and WB Games moved back the release date from May to February of next year. Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League was planned to be released in 2022.
