Warner Bros. has released new images from the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins, but that’s not the biggest update. NAG Magazine (via Kotaku) is reporting that voice actor Kevin Conroy will not reprise his role as Batman in the upcoming prequel. They cite that the developer wanted “to use a new younger actor because the game features Batman in his early years.” This has yet to be confirmed by the developer or Conroy though, so check back here for any updates.
Developed by Warner Bros. Games Montreal, Batman: Arkham Origins will see eight of the best assassins in the world come to Gotham City for one night, Christmas Eve, to try and kill Batman. With even some of the Gotham’s finest turning against him, the prequel story will force the Dark Knight to forge relationships with characters for the first time and find out why so many want him dead.
Batman: Arkham Origins will be available for the Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 25, 2013.
