With comic book Batman busy dealing with his apparent death and time-traveling return, Wayforward's Batman: The Brave and the Bold could be the breath of fresh air that bat-fans so badly need right now. Based on the campy cartoon series of the same name, the Wii and DS game looks to be an old-school beat-em up, a genre that's delivered mixed results to the Batman franchise over the year. Some of the worst Batman games have been side-scrolling beat-em ups.
And then there's The Adventures of Batman & Robin for the Super Nintendo, one of the best Batman games.
So who knows? This could be the best bat-thing since sliced bat-bread. We'll find out this fall, when Batman: The Brave and the Bold ships for the Nintendo Wii and DS.
