Warner Bros has announced that the release of Batman: Arkham Trilogy on Switch has been delayed.
The collection was supposed to come to Nintendo’s console later this month but will now be released on December 1st, a delay of almost two months.
According to a tweet from X, the delay is to allow the developers more time to create the best possible experience on the Nintendo Switch.
The announcement that Batman: Arkham Trilogy would be coming to the Switch was made during a Nintendo Direct presentation in June.
The collection will include Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Knight, along with all previously released DLC for the three games.
It’s worth noting that like other releases of the Arkham Trilogy, it will not include Arkham Origins, the 2013 prequel developed by WB Games Montréal.
The Switch is currently experiencing a porting renaissance, with ports of Red Dead Redemption and cult RPG Gothic also being announced for the system in recent months.
However, Nintendo’s console is known for being somewhat underpowered, with games being delisted in the past due to poor performance, and even native Switch games receiving criticism for their performance and visuals.
When Switch ports are announced, they often face delays or are canceled altogether, as seen with high-profile releases like Hogwarts Legacy and Marvel’s Midnight Suns.
Of course, it is important for any game to have a solid version on the Switch, but Batman: Arkham has more at stake following the public disappointment caused by the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight.
We will have to wait and see if Batman: Arkham Trilogy faces further delays on the Switch, but for now, the collection is scheduled to arrive on Nintendo’s console on December 1st. Stay tuned for more information.
