Rocksteady’s trilogy-capping Batman: Arkham Knight may be drawing attention for its intriguing gameplay changes and bleeding-edge visuals, but the studio has today revealed the voice cast that will be bringing a number of memorable characters to life from behind the pixels.
First up, the staples of the series will once again reprise their roles in the threequel, including Kevin Conroy as The Caped Crusader, Tara Strong as Harley Quinn, Nolan North as Penguin, not to mention The Last of Us‘ Troy Baker as Two-Face.
Beyond that, Rocksteady has left no stone unturned in its search for talent, with the developer securing Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul‘s Jonathan Banks for the role of Jim Gordon. A perfect fit, really, especially when you consider Banks’ world-weary turn as Mike Ehrmantraut. Alongside him are Twilight‘s Ashley Greene as Barbara Gordon – aka Oracle. Those aren’t the only new faces joining the impressive voice cast, however, with places reserved for Scott Porter and John Noble as Nightwing and Scarecrow, respectively.
It’s the latter character that will play a big role in Batman: Arkham Knight, with the devious Jonathan Crane rounding up Gotham’s most illustrious villains to take down The World’s Greatest Detective once and for all. Crane’s band of crooks and goons will also include the titular Arkham Knight, a baddie said to be exclusive to Rocksteady’s universe who has been billed as a more mechanized version of Batman himself.
All will be revealed when Batman: Arkham Knight swoops onto PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 23.
