BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT GETS THE CELEBRITY OK

We are about two weeks away from the release of Rocksteady’s newest game, Batman: Arkham Knight, and to hype up an already highly anticipated game, SNL’s Taran Killam directed a humorous video. The video features celebs like Neil Patrick Harris, Joe Manganiello, Breckin Meyer, Wiz Khalifa, Kumail Nanjiani, Minka Kelly, Blake Anderson, Justine Ezarik, Troy Baker (also the voice of Two Face in the game) and Kevin Conroy who also voices Batman (of course).

The video is meant to highlight the marketing strategy of “Be the Batman”, and really does a great job of how much fun this game will be to play. The celebs seemed to genuinely enjoy playing, with NPH, Blake Anderson, and Wiz Khalifa’s gameplay commentary being particulary hilarious.

If you’ve played the other Batman games and are a fan of them, than a celebrity endorsement is unnecessary; but this video gives fans more gameplay footage and shows players’ reactions, as well as giving viewers a nice chuckle.

BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT will be released on June 23, 2015.
