Telltale loves their story games, and they love making a ton at once. Today Telltale dropped their Summer Update video which included announcements for three new games.

The video started right away with a trailer for Batman: The Enemy Within, a sequel to the popular Batman: The Telltale Series. The trailer showed Batman in front of a corpse while The Joker gave a monologue about how he found new friends on the outside. Then a bunch of TVs turned on to reveal question marks, possibly indicating that The Riddler will be playing a role in the game as well. The trailer then revealed that the game’s first episode will come out August 8th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Android devices. Notably, no Nintendo Switch version was mentioned.

The video then has some interviews about the game, in which they confirm that both The Riddler and Telltale’s version of The Joker (whom they keep referring to as John Doe) will appear. It also seems as if both Two-Face and The Penguin will be returning from the first season. Troy Baker also shows up again, and he will once again be voicing Bruce Wayne/Batman. It also appears that choices from the first season will be carrying over to this one.

Following this we had developers of the Walking Dead games talk about what was next for the series. They talked about the creation of Clementine as a character, and how they had no clue she was going to become as well liked as she was. They also discussed how she evolved through the seasons, going from someone who needed to rely on others to someone who could take care of herself and be relied on. They then confirm they’re working on a fourth, and final, season of The Walking Dead. You will play as Clementine in this season and will aim to wrap up her story. The Walking Dead: The Final Season will come out sometime in 2018.

The biggest surprise was saved for last, with Telltale announcing a second game coming in 2018: The Wolf Among Us 2. They started this segment with a spoof of Jimmy Kimmel’s popular Mean Tweets segment of his show, having developers read “mean tweets” of fans asking for the game. They then had Bigby’s voice actor Adam Harrington confirm that the game’s second season was currently being worked on. There weren’t many details given beyond that, but it’s nice to know the game is on the way.

If you’re not interested in waiting, Telltale currently has a couple series running right now. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is currently on its second episode, while Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 has just started. Both games are available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Android, with Minecraft also available on the Nintendo Switch.

How do you feel about these announcements? Ready for more Batman? Or more Walking Dead? Or more Wolf Among Us? Or none of the above? Let us know in the comments! (but you don’t have to because silence is a valid option)
