Multiply that by a hundred! Yay!!!!!! :D Batman game without Conroy would be incomplete. :D

I'm glad for the fans and all, but personally I don't really like him enough to care. He's not bad of course, but to me, he's not really unique. Like, if he was in another video game voicing some other character, I wouldn't be able to tell it was him cuz his voice sounds generic to me.

Seems to me that you'd find him "generic" because you probably heard him too much .

He's the Batman since the 90s , once gone , unless they do manage to find someone similar enough , you too will scream bloody murder

@Baka-akaB

On the contrary, I never really watched all the shows he made a whole lot, maybe a little. But I was too young to know who it was then.

And I certainly know I haven't played any Batman games other than Arkham Asylum and City. He just never stood out to me from the get go, and I know i'll get reamed for saying it.

I love Batman, but not for Kevin Conroy, he doesn't add or take away anything to me, he's just there.

I didnt know him or his name till recently , i dont follow many voice actors for games and cartoons like i'd do with japanimation ( no dubs , screw them) . And hell if i gave my opinions on some of today's start i'd get murdered .

But i did notice there is always the same voice for Batman , and of course the Joker .

I've been watching the Batman cartoons since right around 1990 when Batman: The Animated Series came out. I thought it was groundbreaking with it's great animation styling, and coupled to some truly inspired voice acting, I still hold it as one of the best cartoons of all time. I came to associate Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman during these formative years. As well, Mark Hamill as the voice of the Joker and so on. Hearing a Batman that isn't Kevin Conroy would just seem wrong to my ears. Just a personal opinion of course, but I do love hearing the man's voice whence a new Batman comes along. :)

BiggCman, I'm SO glad you feel that way, I do too! Ugh! Lol, with that being said though, I'm glad he's back so the fans can be happy.

To me, Kevin Conroy's voice isn't "generic" because it sounds how Batman should sound. He doesn't need to put on a silly growl like Christian Bale does. His voice is powerful and intimidating all by itself. That's what Batman should sound like imo. Even when he is whispering, he sounds ready to kick someone's ass.

They were crazy for even considering anyone other than Conroy.

This makes the Justice League theme play in my head. Either way, sweet victory!

Batman animated series was one of the favorite shows of the 90's and hearing batman with any other voice is just kind of weird now.
hazelamy  +   420d ago
that is exactly what i was going to say Jony.

in fact i'll say it anyway. YAY!! ^_^
Lucreto  +   420d ago
Yes this is excellent news.

The news of him not doing the voice deflated the hype a little bit.

Well there's always Hayter... to hate on...
Sandmano  +   420d ago
Yesssssss Kevin Conroy IS the Batman!!!
itz_zombies  +   420d ago
More of a Batman then Christian Bale can ever hope to be.
JoySticksFTW  +   420d ago
whoa! Let's not go overboard...

Conroy IS Batman's voice, but let's give Bale respect where due. His / Nolan's Batman are arguably the best yet.

And this is from a guy that grew up with Superfriends, Adam West Batman, and the Tim Burton movies, all of which I loved.

YES YES YES
Batman: Arkham City is my favorite game at the current time. Kevin Conroy is the real life Batman. When Batman starts to speak I get goosebumps and some kind of weird feeling that wants more. In fact I get that feeling on most of the main characters in Arkham City [Hugo Strange, Mad Hatter, Mr. Freeze, Zsasz, Ra's Al Ghul, Two Face and The Joker].

everything is right in the world again. that was a close one
KillrateOmega  +   420d ago
Yes! The potential quality of this game just shot up!

How dare they even consider using someone other than Conroy. He is the best voice for Batman, just as Hamill is the best voice for Joker.

Conroy IS Batman.

I still remember the story about how he volunteered to help the responders of 9/11, he would call out orders in the Batman voice and it helped cheer everyone up and boost moral. So glad he's coming back to play him again!
Heisenburger  +   420d ago
That's probably the most American thing I have ever heard!

*tears swell up*
ApolloTheBoss  +   420d ago
Now all we need is Mark Hamill but I won't get my hopes up on that one.
Enigma_2099  +   420d ago
If they don't get the rest of the game right, I'm not gonna care. Rocksteady's not doing this one.
BlaqMagiq24  +   420d ago
And now my interest has returned. I hope Hamill comes back as the Joker, then I really will check this game out.
PigPen  +   420d ago
Nice, I have this game on my watch list.

YES!!!!!! I'm so happy about this!!!!!!!

BiggCman how can you say his voice is generic if you've only heard him voice batman in the Arkham games.

if he was in another video game voicing some other character, I wouldn't be able to tell it was him cuz his voice sounds generic to me.

Isn't the point of voice acting to make your voice sound different
THE-COMMANDER  +   420d ago
Im really happy to know that.
Magnus  +   420d ago
Out of everyone who has either acted as Batman or has done the voice of Batman in other cartoons. Kevin Conroy is the Batman his voice just suits the part.
ConsoleHQ  +   420d ago
Am I the only one that thinks that this is for the Rocksteady Batman game?
Grimicyn  +   420d ago
Wow, this literally made my day! Now I just hope the story is good and that the new devs deliver on their promises. This can still be a great game, I'm much more open to it now.
TBONEJF  +   420d ago
THE TRUE ORIGINAL BATMAN IS BACK! Thank goodness. it would suck if they hire another BATMAN actor. BUYING IT DAY ONE

Forget Christian Bale and all those other guys: This guy IS Batman. He is the first voice of Batman I ever heard.
