IDW Games has talked more about their upcoming board game. Batman: The Animated Series - Gotham Under Siege is quite the long title but it brings probably the best iteration of Batman (in my opinion) to the tabletop.

The game can be played with between one to five players as they take on the role of Batman and his companions trying to stop the deadly criminals that threaten Gotham's streets. The mechanics focus around dice allocation and threat management as you try and keep all of your foes at bay.

The game comes with all new artwork based on The Animated Series, the models that you'll see throughout this article AND some 3D building elements too. This sounds like it's going to look awesome on the tabletop.

Additional releases after the main game will focus in on new characters, new villains and new themes for you to pursue, growing the base of the game and giving you more options for replayability.

I can't wait to see how this game comes together and how it plays. As a big fan of The Animated Series, I hope that IDW Games do this justice. The reach of this sounds impressive too with plenty of expansions in the works.

You'll be able to see previews of the game at Origins 2018 and a release later this year in August.

What do you think of the idea?
