A fresh cinematic trailer for Gotham Knights has been dropped, and isn't to be confused with this trailer from over the weekend. In it we get a glimpse at some of the psychology of Batman's sidekicks, which to be fair if you're at all involved in his altruistic crusade, you're never gonna be quite right, and gives a hint at the depth of writing we might potentially come across in the forthcoming release.
Told from the perspective of Alfred Pennyworth, the video looks at the inner reflection that Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin all go through as each Knight rises to the challenge of protecting an increasingly vulnerable Gotham City in the wake of Batman’s death. The trailer also provides a glimpse of the mysterious Court of Owls and the growing threat it poses.
This studio was responsible for the less well received Batman: Arkham Origins, though the story in that game was really very good, and a lot of time has passed since Rocksteady hung up Batman's boots and left the Arkham universe to take on Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, so there's a gap here alongside an itch we all wouldn't mind having filled and itched, in equal measure. Here's hoping it can live up to expectation.
