Batman: Brave and the Bold – Video Game Trailer
Batman: Brave and the Bold is a Stirling example of how a quality writing team as well as a well thought out and consistent tone, can make a show SO much more entertaining than it’s initial premise. Billed as a Batman for younger audiences and taking more of it’s cues from the 60′s TV series and comics, rather than the darker more grim tone of the 80′s, 90′s and beyond, Brave and the bold is more than the sum of it’s parts. While it is played for laughs and is campy as hell, the show still manages to tell some great stories, introduces numerous characters that haven’t perhaps had that much exposure in the past.
Heroes like the Jaime Reyes version of the Blue Beetle along with Douchiest Green Lantern; Guy Gardener can be teamed up with comedic characters like Bat-mite and Plastic-Man! Yet in the next episode Batman may be working with Sherlock Holmes or The Demon Etrigan! It has even introduced a long running storyline of the invasion of the Starro creatures. It’s scope is impressive and it’s consistent tone sells a concept that might easily have fallen on it’s ass.
Now we’re getting a game based on the show and it seems to have kept much of the trademark humor along with what might be a fun little side scrolling action game for, of all systems, The Wii and Nintendo DS! There is not a huge amount of actual gameplay in this clip, but it’s worth the watch just for some great Bat-Mite action!
