Now Playing: Batman: The Telltale Series - Realm of Shadows Trailer

We've heard a fair bit about Telltale's new Batman game, but it wasn't until now that we got a proper trailer for the new episodic series.

Batman: The Telltale Series sees you control both Bruce Wayne and Batman, and we get a taste of each side of that dynamic in the new video. Many of the characters in the game--Alfred Pennyworth, Harvey Dent, Vicki Vale, Jim Gordon, Carmine Falcone--also show up, and there's a quick glimpse of Catwoman.

This trailer comes quite close to the release of the first episode, which Telltale has announced is due out on August 2. It'll be available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360, as well as iOS and Android devices.

Telltale's plan is to release the full season this year, though that might not happen if it would come at the cost of quality.

In addition to the digital release, a physical version is also on the way. Curiously, Telltale won't wait until the season is complete to offer the full thing on disc. Instead, it'll sell physical copies in September with only the first of five episodes included; the remainder of the five episodes will then need to be downloaded.

We got a look at the game in action back in E3, where it looked quite promising. You can read our full impressions here.

I'm disappointed Kevin Conroy isn't voicing Batman in this game.

As long as they dont create any characters this will be great. Game of Thrones was a huge let down due to them trying to force the Forresters into major plots/events.

Well, I'm sold. I'll admit that it really doesn't take much, but being able to play as Bruce Wayne and explore the duality pleases me to no end.

Looks great, but will only buy it when the full season 1 comes on disc.

Looks budget as fu.

Whoa! TT just blew me away. Looks like you'll be playing as much as BW as Batman. That's a nice change.

It'll be hard to wait for all the episodes to come out before I jump into this. :(

TellTale can shove their season pass disc up where the sun don't shine. I won't be buying the game unless I get the whole game on a disc, not 20% of it.

I love a good story. I love Batman. I'm excited for this title. Yes I am.

Telltale going back to the gritty stuff; the stuff they seem to do best. I won't be picking this up til the 'complete' edition becomes available though. I'm not a fan of episodic style releases, especially when said episodes are released months apart.
