It looks like Seppin has another item to add to his Christmas list.
Batman: The Animated Series is coming to a Mattel’s View-Master VR Viewer, the toy company announced today through a partnership with Warner Bros. and the use of OTOY Inc cinematic rendering technology.
“OTOY is the perfect partner to create new VR content for View-Master,” said Mark Morse, Director Advanced Concepts at Mattel, in a press release. “They’re light-years ahead of the curve when it comes to their rendering capabilities. The Batman experience we previewed at San Diego Comic-Con was just a glimpse into the incredible things to come from this collaboration.”
The technology will be used to bring the new virtual reality experiences to life all based on fan-favorite episodes of Batman: The Animated Series.
“The creative energy I put into OTOY goes all the way back to my childhood. Both Batman: The Animated Series and View-Master were fixtures during that part of my life. It’s a dream come true for me to have the chance to bring them together with Mattel and Warner Bros. Consumer Products and participate in the View-Master’s evolution to VR and beyond,” said Jules Urbach, founder and CEO of OTOY.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Mattel and OTOY on this exciting collaboration with Warner Bros. Animation that will give Batman fans around the world a chance to watch the stories and adventures of their favorite Super Hero in this all-new format.” Kelly Gilmore, Senior Vice President, Global Toys, Warner Bros. Consumer Products, said.
Batman the Animated Series, or BTAS as it is known to us fans, is one of the best animated shows ever and to take a trip back to our childhood to relieve it would be an awesome experience.
