Troy Baker is Batman in Telltale's new game

Those very cool folks at Telltale Games are bringing their own spin on Batman to a console or PC near you this summer, and we've got the first screens and details on the cast.

The 5 episode series is set to arrive by the end of summer 2016 and will tell an original story inspired by decades of tales of the Dark Knight. You'll get to play as both Bruce Wayne and the bat-suited one, with what you do during the day having an impact on what happens each night.

With their Walking Dead and Tales from the Borderlands series Telltale has plenty of experience in player choice and you can be sure you'll be presented with plenty of agonising decisions as you choose how to do deal with everyday billionaire problems and also what to do with criminal scum when you catch up to them.

The game is being built to look like a comic book in motion and that really comes through in these screenshots. Telltale's engine has been clunky and (dare we say it) rather ugly in the past but things are looking much smoother these days - though it must still be a drag to have to release and so many consoles as well as mobile.

You'll no doubt have a full arsenal of toys at your disposal, as well as your trusty Batcomputer.

As for the voice work, acclaimed actor Troy Baker will be providing the pipes for Bruce Wayne and, we assume, Batman as well. He's been a lead in things like The Last of Us and Uncharted 4 and is pretty much the superstar of voice work. After Nolan North of course. Also in the cast is Travis Willingham (Overwatch, Street Fighter V, Far Cry 4) as Harvey Dent.

You'll hear Erin Yvette (Oxenfree, The Wolf Among Us) as Vicki Vale, Enn Reitel (Tintin) as Alfred Pennyworth, Murphy Guyer (House of Cards) as Lieutenant James Gordon, Richard McGonagle (Sully in Uncharted!) as Carmine Falcone, and Laura Bailey (Uncharted 4, Street Fighter V, Halo 5, Bioshock Infinite) as Selina Kyle.

That's one heck of a cast and with the pedigree of what Telltale has done with the story driven adventure genre in the past and the legacy of the Dark Knight himself this looks to be turning into something really special.

Batman The Telltale Series is coming to consoles and PC before the end of the summer 2016.
