The legendary Batman: Arkham trilogy is all set to swoop onto your Nintendo Switch this autumn. Now, for those of you who’ve been living in a Batcave, let me remind you that it was Rocksteady who, with an admirable audacity, took the jinxed notion of licensed Batman video games and turned it on its head, presenting us with the Batman: Arkham series.

These gems won over critics and gamers alike with their sizzling stealth manoeuvres, visceral combat scenes, and a sinisterly twisted plot that dug deep into the psyche of DC’s celebrated Dark Knight. And of course, how could we overlook the cherry on the bat-cake, with Mark Hamill’s chilling Joker and the late Kevin Conroy’s Batman, their voices etching unforgettable impressions.

The Arkham saga kicked off in 2009 with the unexpected smash-hit Batman: Arkham Asylum. Picture this: Batman chasing the Joker and other foes inside a mental health institution, a grim nocturnal adventure loaded with shocking plot twists.

The buzz continued in 2010 with Batman: Arkham City, a sequel that retained the Arkham style while moving the action to a crime-infested city-prison teeming with various supervillains to nab. The grand finale arrived in 2015 with Batman: Arkham Knight, which elevated the player experience by putting us in control of the Batmobile, turning Gotham’s rain-soaked streets into a racetrack for breakneck chases and tank-style battles.

Soon, Nintendo Switch owners will have the golden chance to taste the electrifying adventures of the Batman: Arkham series, as the triad of Rocksteady’s noir superhero action games are set to be ported to the console this autumn as Batman: Arkham Trilogy. This big reveal came during today’s Nintendo Direct livestream, accompanied by a pulse-racing trailer that showcased the most unforgettable scenes from the series.

All the extra DLC from Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Knight will be part of the package, albeit with the conspicuous absence of WB Montreal’s Batman: Arkham Origins.

It’s worth noting that, historically, the Batman: Arkham series has had a scant presence on Nintendo consoles, gracing them only thrice with Arkham City’s re-release for the short-lived Wii U console, the aforesaid Batman: Arkham Origins, and the spin-off title Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate on both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

But things are about to change. Batman: Arkham Trilogy, frequently lauded as one of the finest superhero games ever, is readying to descend on the Nintendo Switch this autumn. While we eagerly wait for Rocksteady’s DC gaming universe to expand with next year’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, Switch owners can gear up to tackle all three of Rocksteady’s gritty Gotham City escapades later this year.

So mark your calendars. Batman: Arkham Trilogy swoops onto Nintendo Switch in Autumn 2023.
