This year marks the 80th Anniversary of the Caped Crusader, or the Dark Knight depending on your preference. Or you can just call him Batman, sales-wise the top character of DC Comics and one of their superhero pillars. Among the many celebratory gestures by DC and Warner for Bob Kane and Bill Finger’s iconic creation, is a LEGO video game DLC. Finally made available alongside all downloadable content for WB Interactive and Traveller’s Tales’ LEGO DC Super-Villains is a level and character pack based on the seminal animated series popular in the nineties. The Batman: The Animated Series DLC Pack adds a new free-roam level depicting Gotham City as in the hit cartoon show, plus character versions of Batman and several rogues as depicted in that same show.
In addition to the Dark Knight himself, the Batman: The Animated Series DLC Pack classic renditions of villains Man-Bat (the bad guy of the series’ premiere episode), Joker, Mad Hatter, Captain Clown (Joker’s android hit-man), the Phantasm (an ex-girlfriend of Bruce Wayne’s and antagonist in the Mask of the Phantasm film), and of course, the character that debuted in the animated series and became a DC household word herself: Joker’s ax-crazy “girlfriend” Harley Quinn.
Naturally, the Batman: The Animated Series DLC Pack is only playable with the LEGO DC Super-Villains video game as a regular download (for $2.99) or via the Deluxe Edition with Season Pass. For a LEGO gamer and animated DC fan, there seems no better way to celebrate eight decades of Batman than this.
