Batman: Arkham Trilogy For Nintendo Switch Has Been Delayed

We live in a society.

Warner Bros. has announced that it’s delaying the release of Batman: Arkham Trilogy for the Switch, a triple-pack of Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Knight that was only recently revealed at the Nintendo Direct in June and was due to launch very soon on October 13th.

The tweet from the official Batman Arkham account announcing the delay reads:

“Batman: Arkham Trilogy for Nintendo Switch will now launch on December 1, 2023.

“More time is needed to bring players the best possible experience on Nintendo Switch. We apologise to fans who are excited to play this version of the trilogy.

“Thank you for your patience.”

While no reason was given for the delay, it’s easy to assume it’s a matter of polish and/or performance concerns for the ambitious Switch versions of these games.

It’ll definitely be interesting to see how these games hold up on the relatively underpowered Nintendo hardware, with Arkham Asylum and Arkham City originating a couple of generations ago but Batman: Arkham Knight remaining a visually-impressive title that launched on PS4 and Xbox One. The port effort is being handled by LA’s Turn Me Up Games, who also worked on the Switch versions of It Takes Two, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 and Borderlands: Legendary Collection – all of which similarly run on versions of the Unreal Engine.
