Watch the Batman: The Brave and the Bold video game trailer

WB Games has released a fairly amusing animated commercial for its Batman: The Brave and the Bold video game. As Rob Bricken points out, it's essentially "a free, three-minute-long cartoon," with Bat-Mite, Batman and Green Arrow trying to sell viewers on how awesome the tie-in merchandise is. So, basically, it's like 95 percent of the Saturday morning cartoons in the 1980s, before the FCC ruined everything.

But anyway, Batman: The Brave and the Bold -- The Videogame, developed by WayForward Technologies, is a side-scroller beat 'em up/platformer with levels designed as episodes. In each, Batman teams up with another superhero -- among them, Aquaman, Blue Beetle, Black Canary and Guy Gardner -- to stop one of several villains. The game will be released on Tuesday for the Wii and Nintendo DS.
