Prepare yourself, Bat-Fans, for the ultimate Batman AR experience with the brand new DC: BATMAN BAT-TECH EDITION APP from Warner Bros. and Pure Imagination Studios.
This one-of-a-kind free mobile app will immerse kids in narrative-driven, technology-inspired activities set in the vast world of the Dark Knight. They will get the chance to have detailed looks at several pieces of Batman’s tech, using Augmented Reality technology to view them from all angles, using their mobile devices. Some of this tech includes Batman’s cowl, utility belt, and even the ultimate hero ride, the Batmobile.
But the main draw of the app is the AR missions where you get to help Batman take down bad guys in Gotham City as a member of his new Knightwatch team, along with the help of the Bat-computer, Penny-One.
In these missions, you get to interact with some of Batman’s greatest villains, like The Joker, The Riddler, Mr. Freeze, and more! You will also your detective skills, paired with Batman’s wonderful tech, to help put an end to all the chaos they create throughout the city.
The Batman Bat-Tech App starts off with 10 interactive missions, with more coming as time goes on. It also includes mini-games centered around the use of Bat-tech. You get to throw Batarangs, jump buildings with a grapnel gun, track down hidden baddies with the Batcowl, and drive around town in the Batmobile. These mini-games will give you invaluable practice for when you dive into the AR missions. And your progress is tracked with a progressive system that allows you to climb the ranks and hit certain goals.
You also get access to some fun face filters like Batman, Mr. Freeze, Riddler, Joker, Batgirl, and more, sticker packs, which can be used to give any ordinary photo the Batman treatment, Bat-Tech video content, coming to you from the DCKids YouTube channel, including tech-related clips from shows like Batman Beyond and Batman: The Brave & The Bold, as well as a new series called Batman Science Lab, with episodes covering Batman’s thermal armor, cape glider, the Batmobile, and more!
But what’s great about it is that there will be new missions, games, filters, sticker packs, and video content added and updated on a regular basis to keep the app experience fresh and fun for kids.
One of the features I’m most excited for is the brand new comic made just for the Batman Bat-Tech App, titled Batman: Knightwatch, where kids can explore how the Knightwatch program was created and follow along with Batman and his Super Hero team as they take on Gotham City’s Super-Villains following a massive breakout at Arkham Asylum. The app launches with issue #1 “Cloud of Bats”, with additional digital comics to be added on a regular basis. So be sure to check that out.
This app is a completely offline experience, and is COPPA compliant, because the safety of the kids using the app is very important, which is great.
Fans can download the DC: Batman Bat-Tech Edition app today and help Batman save Gotham City. Available for free on the Apple Store and the Google Play store, the app is playable on both tablets and smart phones. The app is available globally and is localized in 13 different languages.
