Watch Telltale Batman's first trailer and find out when episode 1 arrives

Take a look at the new episodic series that puts you in the shoes of both Bruce Wayne and Batman.

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.
