Batman: The Telltale Series will be rereleased with visual makeover and new DLC

Batman: The Telltale Series will be re-released with a “noir-style visual makeover,” a graphical upgrade, and new DLC, according to a now-deleted press release by publisher Athlon Games and revived developer Telltale Games.

According to the press release, the re-release will be titled The Telltale Batman Shadows Edition, and it will include Batman: The Telltale Series and new DLC for a price of $30. For players who own the base game, they may purchase Shadows Mode, which will add the new noir look, as standalone DLC for $5.

“We’re excited to be able to build and continue the legacy of an iconic Telltale Games franchise by launching The Telltale Batman Shadows Edition today,” said Jamie Ottilie, the CEO of the new Telltale Games. “This is just the beginning in a much more expansive plan to build on our catalog of Telltale Games titles, which we hope to discuss in further detail in the coming months.”

The press release, dated December 5, says that the game is already available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC through Steam and the Epic Games Store, and Nintendo Switch. However, as it was taken down shortly after being posted, the date was likely wrong. It remains unclear when it was supposed to be published.

The Telltale Batman Shadows Edition will be the first of five titles involved in a publishing agreement between Athlon Games and Telltale Games. The press release mentions the second season of Telltale’s Batman, Batman: The Enemy Within, but it appears that it is not included in the re-release.

Telltale Games was brought back to life earlier this year after a new studio purchased the rights to the developer’s games such as Batman and The Wolf Among Us. The new Telltale Games, however, will no longer be making The Walking Dead games, as the series was acquired by Skybound Entertainment last year to complete the game’s final season.

The Wolf Among Us 2, which was previously reported to have been canceled before the shutdown of Telltale Games, is already in the works. The announcement was made at The Game Awards 2019, where a brief trailer was released.

All GTA Vice City cheats: PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC
Grand Theft Auto City's main character stands in front of a neon sign.

The past has never looked so good. That applies not only to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City -- Definitive Edition itself, but also the 1980s-inspired style of the titular city. This entry was a blast from the past when it was first released, and it's downright retro today. Thanks to the face-lift this remastering has provided, it has never been easier to go back and relive the story of Tommy Vercetti and his quest for revenge in this visually overwhelming take on an exaggerated version of a crime-infested '80s city.

As much love as this entry received when it came out for its story and characters -- it's still often considered one of the best games released on that entire generation of consoles -- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City pushed open-world games in a whole new direction. In keeping with series tradition, which continues to be the case, this title was jam-packed with cheats that can completely change how the game is played. This game has far more than any other in the recently released trilogy, making it ripe for revisiting to see what crazy antics you can cause. There are even a few new ones not included in the original, so even die-hard fans will want to see our full list of all the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City -- Definitive Edition cheat codes.

Where to find the Coin Case in Pokémon Infinite Fusion
Casino in Pokémon Infinite Fusion.

Every Pokémon trainer knows that when you reach Celadon City, there's one essential stop — the casino! By playing slots and blackjack, players can earn enough coin to trade for rare Pokémon and powerful TMs next door.

If you enter the casino immediately, you'll be sent away because you lack a Coin Case. No one in the casino will give you one and getting one isn't a part of any main quest, so you'll have to go hunting for it throughout the city. If you're thorough, you won't miss it. But we're here to save you a bit of time.

Can’t wait for Assassin’s Creed Shadows? Play these games instead
Yasuke in Assassin's Creed Shadows.

Ubisoft unveiled Assassin's Creed Shadows last week, giving us our first real glimpse at the first Assassin's Creed game to be set in Japan. Its Feudal Japan setting is something that fans of Assassin's Creed have craved for a long time, and while it's awesome that Ubisoft is finally delivering that concept, some other games did beat it to the punch. Many other developers have noticed how fruitful a historical Japan setting can be, from its feudal era all the way until the West started to intervene in the Edo period. As a result, there are quite a few games that I can recommend you check out while you're waiting for Assassin's Creed Shadows' November 15 launch.

The five games I'm recommending all range in size. Three of them are AAA action games, all set in different eras of Japanese history that immerse players in different ways. Meanwhile, the other two games I'm spotlighting are more experimental titles that, while not directly comparable to Assassin's Creed Shadows from a gameplay perspective, are still well worth your time if Japanese history and culture intrigue you.
