Bellevue, WA â€“ 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 Q1, 2003.
â€œWe 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,â€ 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.
