Telltale Games Releases Info for Batman: The Enemy Within
Telltale Games definitely wants to raid our wallets. They have not only released a new teaser for a sequel to The Wolf Among Us, we’re also getting a new Batman game from them.
Here’s how Telltale Games describes this new game:
In this latest chapter, both Bruce Wayne and Batman will be forced into precarious new roles. The Riddler has returned to terrorize Gotham City, but his gruesome puzzles merely foreshadow an even greater crisis. With the arrival of a ruthless federal agent and the return of a still nascent Joker, Batman must navigate uneasy alliances while Bruce Wayne undertakes a perilous series of deceptions. Which of Batman’s new allies will you choose to trust? And how deep into the darkness will you let Bruce descend?
This new season will be accessible to both returning fans and newcomers alike, though players’ choices from the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series will optionally carry over into The Enemy Within. This season will also include Telltale’s unique multiplayer ‘Crowd Play’ feature, which allows friends and family to engage with the adventure together by helping to decide the direction of the story from any mobile device with an online connection.
Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale’s vision of Batman features an award-winning cast of talent including Troy Baker, who returns to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne, as well as Anthony Ingruber, who will reprise his fresh take on ‘John Doe,’ better known to fans as The Joker.
And to spice things up, here’s the actual announcement video for Batman: The Enemy Within.

Given Telltale’s track record for producing narrative heavy games like the first Batman Telltale Game, I wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes a fan favorite as well. But do me a favor and get the complete season if you really want to savor the Batman experience.
