Rumors claim that the collection dubbed Batman Arkham is set to release on Nintendo Switch in 2022.
If Nintendo is primarily known for its in-house franchises (Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, Kirby and so on), the firm allows itself some important third-party ports on its latest console, the Nintendo Switch. Rumor has it that a new collection of games is planned for this year, centered around the famous superhero Batman. This is the collection batman arkhamalready available on PC, Xbox and PlayStation.
This information comes straight from the French site World Trade Technologies (WTT), specializing in the sale of games, consoles and products derived from geek culture. For many minutes, the site posted the product sheet for the collection with the mention of Switch compatibility, availability for August 2022 and a price around 60€. As of this writing, the page is no longer available.
A premature announcement?
So, simple mistake or unfortunate leak? For the moment, nothing has been announced in the sense of an upcoming release on Nintendo Switch for the Batman collection, so we can consider this event as a mere possibility. However, some have already managed to find a correlation between the WTT site and Nintendo which could further support the rumor.
Indeed, many months ago, it was already WTT who predicted the arrival of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on the Nintendo console. So it adds more credibility to the source. As a reminder, in the collection batman arkham lies the games Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Knight. This was originally released in 2018, so it will have taken a while to land on Nintendo Switch, again if that’s the case.
Batman Gotham Knights is well and truly on its way to 2022
This year, however, we should see the release of a brand new title. Batmanthe spin-off Gotham Knights. Recently, Warner Bros. confirmed to us on Twitter that the title, as well as the highly anticipated Hogwarts Legacy, were well on their way to 2022, despite numerous rumors of postponements. If nothing is announced on the Nintendo side for the next few months, we will therefore have to settle for this release, which is official.
In the cinema, also prepare for the release of the film The Batman, which will see Robert Pattinson take on the costume of the masked hero. It will also be an opportunity to find Zoë Kravitz who will play Catwoman, and Andy Serkis who will camp the famous butler Alfred Pennyworth. See you at the cinema on March 2 next.
