There’s a online game popping out known as Gotham Knights. It’s about some youngsters from the Batman universe who band collectively after Batman is killed. There’s additionally a TV present popping out known as Gotham Knights. It’s about some youngsters from the Batman universe who band collectively after Batman is killed. They don’t have anything in widespread.
The recreation is due out in direction of the tip of 2022. The TV present is airing in 2023. That positive does make it sound like they’re each very associated to one another, however no, the builders of the online game would love everybody to know that’s completely not the case:
I can perceive the authorized causes for this tweet. Despite the quite a few superficial similarities, there are variations between the 2 initiatives. For starters, the sport is predicated on the Batman: Gotham Knights comics and follows roughly the identical plot, in that the children banding collectively are all Batman’s former proteges, like Nightwing and Batgirl.
The present, in the meantime, is not primarily based on the comics, and is about Batman’s adopted son teaming up with…the youngsters of Batman’s enemies after they’re all framed for a homicide they didn’t commit. Having two initiatives with the identical identify however totally different storylines positive looks as if a licensing/advertising and marketing screw-up someplace at DC, as a result of regardless of tweets like this there’ll at all times be of us on the market who will both get the 2 combined up, or suppose one is predicated on the opposite.
I also can perceive the emotional causes for that tweet, although, as a result of the Gotham Knights TV sequence dropped its first trailer final week, and it seems like full dogshit! It could be one factor to have your recreation be confusingly related to a TV present on precept, however to have it sharing oxygen with a comic book e book model of Disney’s Descendants should be extremely irritating:
Hopefully the very fact the sport is out in October 2022 (on PS5, Xbox X/S and PC), whereas the present isn’t resulting from air till 2023, will give it some respiratory room.
