Batman: Arkham Trilogy already has a release date on Nintendo Switch

Rocksteady has announced that Batman: Arkham Trilogy will be released on October 13 on the Nintendo Switch.

The Batman: Arkham trilogy was announced for the handheld in June, during a Nintendo Direct where a new trailer featuring gameplay from the final versions of the games was shown.

The trilogy will include Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Knight, as well as all post-launch content. This means that users will also have access to the Arkham Knight DLC, which will include other playable characters such as Batgirl, Robin, and Nightwing.

Rocksteady revealed the release date in a Twitter post featuring new artwork by artist Christian Ward, featuring the caped crusader Batman alongside other iconic DC Comics characters including the Joker, Harley Quinn, Robin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, and many more.

The first game in the trilogy is Arkham Asylum, which was first released in 2009 for PS3 and Xbox 360. It later came to PS4 and PC, and Arkham City was released two years later, followed by Arkham Knight in 2015. Asylum and City in particular have been praised over the years as some of the best playable superhero games to date.

Arkham Origins, launched in 2013 and developed by WB Montreal, is not in the collection but is still part of the same universe and the same general story.

Rocksteady is currently working on Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League (which will focus on the titular anti-heroes Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, King Shark, and Deadshot) and will be released on PS5, Xbox Series X | S, and PC. The game was originally scheduled for release in 2023 but was pushed back to February 2, 2024, after initial gameplay was negatively received by fans.
