Warner Bros. and DC have released a new Batman Bat-Tech Edition app on Thursday that will give kids and those young at heart, a ton to do in Gotham City. The new app will make you part of Batman’s Knightwatch and will let you use carious Bat-Tech to stop crime around Gotham City.
And if fighting crime isn’t your thing, there are also mini-games and an all-new digital comic series called Batman: Knightwatch to keep you entertained. And if you’re more into video, the app will also include access to a new series of shots called Batman Science Lab.
The app, as well as all content, is available in 13 languages, and all new content will also be provided in the supported languages.
And while the app is free, consumers are sure to wonder about the number of in-app purchases and micro-transactions you’ll find inside. We’re happy to report that there are none to be found. We attended a demo for the app with the team behind the app and they assured all of us that no in-app transactions are planned.
“Batman is one of our most important franchises, so bringing together the DC and Warner Bros. Consumer Products teams to develop this app featuring his fan-favorite gadgets and crime-fighting tech was a chance for us to give fans yet another way to engage with a favorite DC Super Hero,” said Pam Lifford, President, WarnerMedia Global Brands and Experiences. “The app creates a truly unique experience that gives kids around the world a chance to immerse themselves in the DC Universe — there’s no other app like it available today.”
“The Batman mobile app showcases Batman’s innovative technology, using augmented reality like never before, and gives kids a way to unlock the mystery behind Batman’s crime-fighting gadgets,” said Kevin Morris, Vice President, Franchise Management and Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “Kids can now experience being a DC Super Hero alongside Batman, and while learning and playing they can also help save Gotham City.”
The app is available for immediate download.
