Warner Bros. Interactive and Electronic Arts have announced that they have formed a partnership to bring games based on next summer’s [i]Batman Begins[/i] movie to the consoles next year. The games are currently scheduled to ship alongside the movie’s launch next summer.
“We’re thrilled to partner with EA and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to capture the magic of Batman Begins in a ground-breaking videogame,” said Paul Levitz, President and Publisher of DC Comics. “This will mark the first time that a Batman video game has been developed to complement a film event, and we look forward to inviting players to step into the movie’s reality and make the world of Batman their own.”
For those who don’t know, Batman Begins will further explain the origins of Batman’s start and how he became what he is in Gotham City. After his parents are killed, young heir Bruce Wayne travels the world seeking means to fight injustices and once he returns, the dark knight emerges.
“Batman Begins is the darker depiction of Batman that we’ve all been waiting for, and we are teaming with EA to bring players an edgy, action game that captures this tale,” said Jason Hall, Senior Vice President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Co-publishing Batman Begins allows Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to continue its involvement in the development and marketing of quality games based on Warner Bros. properties.”
