UPDATE: Kevin Conroy just joined Twitter, and one of the very first things he did was clear up any confusion by explaining that he was NOT referring to Arkham Origins, but Rocksteady’s next-gen Arkham title instead…he then deleted the tweet because he obviously shouldn’t be mentioning a title that hasn’t even been announced. Yikes. Seems Batman’s weakness is Twitter. Roger Craig Smith, best known as the voice of Ezio Auditore from Assassin’s Creed, will be voicing Batman in Arkham Origins.
It was widely reported that the famed voice actor would not be reprising his role as the masked hero in the newest entry in the Batman Arkham series. However, Kevin Conroy himself has today proved those reports false.
During a Q&A panel at Comic Con in Dallas, Kevin Conroy told the crowd he had been working on the next Arkham game for the past few months and was not able to talk about it due to a Non Disclosure Agreement. Conroy goes on to decribe the upcoming title as an unbelievable game with a huge cast and big story.
This is great news for fans of the Batman series and should please all of those who like consistency between games in a series. Conroy has voiced close to every animated and video game adaptation of Batman since 1993.
Batman: Arkham Origins is due for an October release and stars a younger Batman than we’ve known as Origins predates all other entries in the series. You can check out some screens and get more information on the game in some of our previous reports. Stay tuned to Capsule Computers to check out a full length trailer of the game that should be revealed sometime today.
