They recently announced that they would take on one of the biggest names in superhero comic books, Batman. The time will soon come for the Bat-signal to be shone as Telltale have revealed the episode name and its release date, for episode 1.

Episode 1: Realm of Shadows, will be the first of five episodes in the season and will hit the Xbox One digitally from the 2nd of August.

Telltale have been tight-lipped on what this episode will contain, and rightly so, but they have revealed that the series will also be coming to stores as a special Season Pass Disc. This will include Episode 1 and then will grant access to the remaining four episodes as they become available. These will be downloaded as game updates once released. This Season Pass Disc will be hitting retail stores from the 13 of September in North America, and as a European release from the 16th of September.

To celebrate the release date reveal, Telltale have gathered together some fabulous looking clips and bundled them into the trailer below. A lot of the usual Batman gang are present, Commissioner Gordon, Alfred, Catwoman, Harvey Dent, Vicky Vale and Carmine Falcone all make a fleeting appearance.
