The Riddler: Secrets In The Dark
The story told in The Riddler: Secrets In The Dark is a classic Batman mystery. The Dark Knight is suspected of committing these heinous acts of “justice” throughout Gotham. When The Riddler hears about the vigilante hunting down villains, he decides to bust out of Arkham Asylum. However, this leads him on a path to teaming up with Batman, whether he wants to or not. Now, the two must work together to stop from becoming the next victim in this vigilante’s particular brand of justice. However, can Batman work with his often-times enemy long enough to solve this case? And is The Riddler hiding anything up his green sleeves?
The Riddler: Secrets in the Dark kicks off on October 10 on Spotify.
