The goal of the game is for 1-5 players, taking on the role of Batman and the rest of the Bat family, to thwart the plans of the Masterminds who have deadlier weapons and improved tactics. Alongside armored cars and explosives, the villains now join their hired goons on the streets to fight Batman and his team directly. New Rooftop Villains and Act Leader Target mechanisms are also added. New Mastermind cards include The Joker, Two-Face, and The Riddler.
The game is aimed at players aged 14+ and plays in 45-60 mins. It’s expected to release in October of 2019.

IDW Games New Game Announcements
Batman: Gotham City Under Siege, although not a new announcement for its release is going to be hitting retail very soon.
Designed by Richard Launius and Michael Guigliano, and Batman – The Animated Series: Gotham City Under Siege is a cooperative game for 1-5 players. Each player takes on the role of Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Commissioner Gordon or the Gotham City Police Department, along with the unlikely aid of Catwoman. They must defend the city over the course of four acts, with each act inspired by episodes from the first season of the show. Players will need to work together to find the right balance between completing challenging story cards, or taking down the villains and masterminds running rampant in the streets.
First-time announcing, however, is TMNT Adventures. More info will be coming soon.
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]
