KEMCO ANNOUNCES NEW RELEASE DATES FOR BATMAN: DARK TOMORROW
Bellevue, WA – October 15,
2002 - Japan-based videogame publisher Kemco has
announced new U.S. release dates for Batman: Dark Tomorrow, the first
Batman video game based on the DC Comics epic comic book series. Dark
Tomorrow, slated for the Nintendo GameCube, PlayStation®2 computer
entertainment system and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft, will ship in
“We made the decision to push the game back until Q1 in order to ensure that we are publishing the best Batman video game to date,” said Glenn Halseth, vice president of sales and marketing of Kemco.
Dark Tomorrow takes a different twist on the franchise from previous Batman video games. Focusing on the detective elements, the world of the Dark Knight is darker, grittier and offers gamers a more stealth-based Batman game, rather than a button-mashing marathon. Players encounter more than 90 enemies in Batman: Dark Tomorrow, some of which have yet to be included in any Batman game to date.
Since 1984, Kemco has produced over 100 titles including the popular Top Gear racing games and Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle series for a wide variety of video game platforms. An original Nintendo licensee, Kemco works closely with DC Comics, Warner Bros. and Universal Studios on ongoing video game projects. Currently Kemco’s development teams are creating games for Nintendo’s next generation platforms, as well as Sony PlayStation®2 and Microsoft’s Xbox.
