Following the Telltale Games studio closure and LCG Entertainment acquiring its games and relaunching, certain titles have begun to reappear or get updates. For example, The Wolf Among Us second season was announced at The Game Awards 2019, and now Telltale Batman Shadows Edition has begun appearing on new platforms. Xbox One and PC owners who use Steam can grab this collection for $29.99, while Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC owners who prefer Epic Games Store will be able to get it digitally on all those platforms “in the near future.”
Telltale Batman Shadows Edition is a compilation of every Telltale Games Batman series. When people grab a copy, they get all five episodes of Batman: The Telltale Series, all five Batman: The Enemy Within episodes, and the new Batman Shadows Mode DLC. Shadows Mode is a new visual effect that makes everything monochromatic, with occasional splashes of green and red as the only highlights. (Think of it as a Sin City sort of filter.)
If people already own either Telltale Batman series, then they can pick up the Batman Shadows Mode DLC separately. It is a $4.99 add-on. Once acquired and applied, there are new textures added and the palette changes everyone’s appearances slightly. As long as someone has one episode from either game, it can be used.
Batman: The Telltale Series originally appeared on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, and mobile devices in 2016. It was followed by Batman: The Enemy Within a year later.
Telltale Batman Shadows Edition is immediately available for the Xbox One and PC. It will appear on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 as well.
