The Nintendo Switch has received a huge number of ports of important third-party multiplatform hits from the last decade, with more on the way, while there are still a lot of beloved multiplatform games that have yet to be released. Three of them appear to be on the verge of doing so.
The website of French retailer WTT just listed Batman: Arkham Collection for the Nintendo Switch, with a release date of August 31, however, this could just be a placeholder. Since then, the listing has been removed.
The Batman: Arkham Collection was released in 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One, and it included all three Arkham games made by Rocksteady Studios: Batman: Arkham Knight, as well as updated versions of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.
Of course, an Arkham Collection for the Switch has yet to be formally announced, and faulty shop listings aren’t uncommon, so don’t consider this as an official confirmation of a transfer just yet. However, one of the Switch’s most unusual ports to date, The Witcher 3, was leaked by the same retailer before its official release, so there’s hope.
Gotham Knights, a game that isn’t situated in the Arkham universe but does turn you loose with four playable superheroes in an open-world Gotham City, is planned to release sometime this year. Meanwhile, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which has been pushed back to 2023, will see the titular squad of villains travel to Metropolis to battle a brainwashed Justice League, albeit no word on whether Batman will appear—and the film is set in the Arkham realm.
