Batman: Arkham Trilogy arrived December 1 as the games' first release on Switch, though not the first time on a Nintendo console as Batman: Arkham City appeared on Wii U.

While IGN hasn't reviewed the Switch versions, all three games were well-received upon their original launches, with Batman: Arkham Asylum setting a new precedent for superhero games. "Batman: Arkham Asylum is the greatest comic book videogame of all time," IGN said in our 9/10 review at the time.

It's sequel earned a 9/10 too, as IGN said: "Batman: Arkham City isn't just better than Batman: Arkham Asylum, it's better than most games on the market." The final game received the same score: "Batman: Arkham Knight is an impressive game on almost every level, with non-stop variety and great action."
