Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, on behalf of DC Comics, has announced Batman: The Brave and the Bold the Videogame, an action-adventure game based on the popular animated series.

The new game is scheduled for release this autumn for Wii and Nintendo DS.

Batman: The Brave and the Bold the Videogame promises to fully immerse fans into the vivid animated world of the successful TV series where kids can play as Batman or together with family and friends in two-player co-op mode - choose from iconic characters Robin, Green Lantern and Blue Beetle, along with drop-in heroes such as Aquaman to help solve puzzles and fight foes.

Players embark on a journey through crime-filled alleys, alien planets, abandoned underground cities and mysterious laboratories.

By connecting the Wii and DS versions players will unlock Bat-Mite as a playable character - he can be controlled on the DS to fight alongside the main characters in all levels of the Wii game.
