Final Fantasy designer Tetsuya Nomura shows his extreme take on Batman

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Kingdom Hearts creator and Final Fantasy designer Tetsuya Nomura re-imagines the caped crusader for Square Enix's Play Arts Kai line of action figures, and the intriguing result is on display at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.

Nomura's Batman, a Variant Play Arts Kai version of the DC Comics character, doesn't look too far separated from what we might summon in a Final Fantasy game mixed with a bit of Keyblade Armor from Kingdom Hearts.

Square Enix says the version on display at Comic-Con is a prototype, and doesn't have price or release date details yet. But it does say the figure is part of a new line of Batman figures designed by Nomura, so perhaps we'll get his interpretation of The Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Catwoman and more. Maybe even Robin.

Polygon is at Comic-Con in San Diego and will have more from the show throughout the week.
