Ahead of E3 in L.A., Telltale games have unveiled screenshots and the cast of list of their highly anticipated Batman episodic video game series Batman – The Telltale Series. This is major news as its our first glimpse at the first Batman video game to succeed the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham video game series.

Although that is not the full cast and more surprises are expected to be revealed, the game is already looking like it’s full of rich Batman characters. On an interesting note, did you notice that Gordon is only a Lieutenant here? Perhaps this game will set early into Batman’s crime-fighting career.
, Batman will feature a “non-photorealistic” look inspired by comic book artists Jim Lee, Greg Capullo and Neal Adams. These artists are legendary for their contributions to the Batman comics. Furthermore, it will give the game a similar look to The Walking Dead series which was also rendered in the cartoon-like style of the comic books.
The four shots give us a look at both Bruce Wayne and Batman, compounding the earlier announcement that we would be able to play as both in the game. Furthermore, we are also given glimpses of the Batmobile, what looks to be interior Wayne Manor and even a screenshot Catwoman.
