Batman: Arkham Collection for Switch Possibly Leaked by Retailer

According to French retailer WTT, Nintendo Switch may soon be getting the Batman: Arkham Collection, which includes Rocksteady's three Batman games - Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Knight.

As reported by VGC, this listing by WTT is of note as the retailer had previously listed the Switch port of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt before it got its official reveal. It's important to remember that this doesn't necessarily confirm that these games are coming, as this could have been a mistake or otherwise, but it should give some hope to those looking to take Batman on the go.

The listing, which is still up as of this writing, has a placeholder date of August 31, 2022, which could hint it may be planned for a summer 2022 release date. Who knows, if this listing does prove to be true, it could be part of Nintendo's currently unannounced first Direct of 2022.

2022 also seems like a great year for these games to finally arrive on Nintendo's latest console. Not only would they help with the wait now that reports have said Rocksteady's Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed to 2023, but we are also only about a month away from the theatrical release of Matt Reeves' The Batman.

While the Wii U received a port of Batman: Arkham City, the Switch has yet to get any of Rocksteady's fantastic games. In 2019, we called Batman: The Arkham Series the best comic book video games ever made, saying, "with a fully realized Gotham as your playground, this series nailed the Batman vibe in every way."

The Batman: Arkham Collection was first released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2018, and 2022 may be the year it finally arrives on Switch alongside other long-requested ports like Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection.
