Batman: Arkham Trilogy has been delayed for Nintendo Switch
The upcoming collection of beloved Batman: Arkham titles for Nintendo Switch has been delayed to "bring players the best possible experience.”
- The announcement was made via a statement posted to the series' official X account, confirming that the game's original October 13 release date has been pushed back to December 1, 2023. “Batman: Arkham Trilogy for Nintendo Switch will now launch on December 1, 2023,” the statement reads. “More time is needed to bring players the best possible experience on Nintendo Switch. We apologize to fans who are excited to play this version of the trilogy. Thank you for your patience.”
- The trilogy is being developed by Turn Me Up Games, and it will be the first time that Rocksteady's Arkham titles will be available on a Nintendo system. Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Knight are included, as well as all DLC content from the original releases.
- Fans have reacted positively to the news, with many pointing out how jam-packed October is with new releases, including Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, and Alan Wake II. Others have asked the developer to include WB Games Montreal's Arkham Origins in the release, as it is noticeably missing, most likely due to a different original developer and the fact that it serves as a prequel rather than a direct part of the story.
