Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham Under Siege

Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham Under Siege, from IDW Games will be the first in a series of tabletop games based on the Warner Brothers cartoon franchise. This is a game for 1-5 players who play as Batman and his allies protecting Gotham from his Rogues Gallery. It’s designed by Richard Launius (known for Elder Sign, Arkham Horror) and Michael Guigliano, intended for players aged 14+, and plays in 45-60 mins.

Gotham’s heroes will make use of dice allocation and threat management to defend the city against bosses and their henchmen. Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham Under Siege includes all new artwork, character miniatures, and 3D city buildings.

This appears to be the first in a series of games based on the franchise, though it’s not clear if future games will be expansions for this game, or entirely different games.

“Subsequent releases in the series will capture and celebrate the Batman Animated universe, packed with heroes and villains, featuring them in settings new and still familiar to fans and gamers. Developed with renowned artists and designers, IDW Games is excited to bring these beloved characters to the tabletop for fans of Batman: The Animated Series to enjoy for years to come.” [source]
