Batman Shadows Edition will come to Switch in the ‘near future’

Batman Shadows Edition Switch release date near future Telltale Games

Telltale Games, which came back from the dead recently by being bought out and partially staffed by completely unrelated people, has announced Batman Shadows Edition, available now on Xbox One and Steam for $29.99 and “in the near future” for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Epic Games Store. The game features all 10 episodes from both seasons of Batman: The Telltale Series, which of course includes Batman: The Enemy Within. It also features new Shadows Mode DLC, which applies a monochromatic filter to the entire game, save for some rich red and green flourishes.

Take a look at Batman Shadows Edition‘s trailer, which dutifully shows off every positive score or quotation available pertaining to the original games.

Both seasons of the original Telltale series received an overall decent, though definitely not glowing critical reception. But if you’re a Batman or Telltale Games fan, Batman Shadows Edition seems like a pretty safe purchase.

The bigger news that came out during The Game Awards 2019 was the renewed announcement of The Wolf Among Us 2, set in the Fables comic book universe and retaining some of the key staff that created the original game. Between that and Batman Shadows Edition, does one float your boat more? In either case, comic book fans win.
