Bizarre news as it turns out that Batman: The Animated Series will be coming to the Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR headset as an “immersive entertainment experience”.
The series, which is widely viewed as one of the greatest animated series ever made is, bizarrely for a VR headset – resolutely 2D – but this doesn’t seem to have dissauded anyone.
According to Digital Spy:
“Warner Digital Series, DC Entertainment and visual effects company Otoy are collaborating on the project, with the aim of preserving the drawing style in a 3D space without the need for additional post-production work.”
Apparently the original series producer Bruce Timm is also involved.
It’s not immediately clear what sort of “experience” it will be – but it sounds as though it won’t be a game. Either way – there’s a lot of rich source material for it to mine.
