DC: BATMAN BAT-TECH EDITION APP A Cool New AR App
DC and Warner Bros. Consumer Products have released DC: Batman Bat-Tech Edition App. The new app for kids aged 6-12 uses AR to “immerse kids in a narrative-driven collection of fun and engaging story experiences that entertain, educate and celebrate Batman’s tech.” The app is COPPA compliant and fans can download and play it for absolutely free. Kids will be able to learn about Batman’s tech as well as play mini-games, change photos using face filters and stickers, read exclusive digital comics, watch themed video content, and even access the Batcomputer.
Augmented reality (AR) missions: Through the new app’s AR features, kids become a member of Batman’s new Knightwatch team and immerse themselves in original Batman crime-fighting missions. The amazing AR provides a realistic 3D experience that draws upon engineering and design concepts to make Batman’s Bat-Tech come to life.
Mini games: Users can play a Batman-themed mobile driving game where players test their skills at driving the Batmobile; Batarang Practice where players face off against the clock and find out how many targets they can knock down; and the Grapnel Launcher game where players must run and jump while utilizing Batman’s abilities to overcome obstacles.
AR face filters: Kids can transform into Batman, the Joker, Batgirl and more of Gotham City’s most iconic characters using these fun filters and can save photos and share them with friends and family.
Sticker packs: Users can decorate photos with a variety of Batman-themed stickers, turning an ordinary shot into a cool Batman story.
Batman Bat-Tech video content: The app connects to the extremely popular DCKids’ YouTube channel. A new series, entitled “Batman Science Lab” will launch this fall exploring the real-world applications of Batman’s technology.
New missions, games, filters, sticker packs, and video content will be added and updated on a regular basis to keep the app experience fresh and fun for kids.
The exclusive comic series is Batman – Knightwatch and shares the creation of the Knightwatch program. Talking about the app, Pam Lifford of WarnerMedia Global Brands and Experiences said:
