A French retailer has seemingly listed Rocksteady’s Batman Arkham Collection for the Nintendo Switch later this year.
That’s according to Video Games Chronicle, who spied the listing on WTT over the weekend. Though it’s no longer up, the listing claimed the collection would be out around August 31, 2022. The same retailer had previously let slip the Nintendo Switch port of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt prior to its announcement in 2019 too, adding some legitimacy to this rumour.
The Batman Arkham Collection includes all of Rocksteady’s Batman offerings. This includes Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Knight originally released between 2009 and 2015. Funnily enough, of the three only Batman: Arkham City has appeared on Nintendo’s platform before; namely the Wii U in 2012.
All three games were launched as a digital-exclusive collection on PS4 and Xbox One in 2018, before a retail version landed a year later. It also threw in a bonus skin for Arkham Knight, previously only available via limited promotions or E3 2015 attendees. There’s no indication if this new Switch version will include that, or be standard or a Cloud Version.
Neither Rocksteady nor WB Games have commented on the listing as of yet either, so take this rumour with a pinch of salt. Still, if true, it’s a very nice collection for Rocksteady fans, and might tide them over for a while. And it may have to, as Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is rumoured to be delayed until 2023.
