Amazon’s Echo speaker can do every thing from controlling your house to ordering pizza, however its newest trick is one thing particular… at the least, in case you’re a fan of caped crusaders. As a part of a group-up with DC Comics and Warner Bros., Amazon has launched a Select Your Personal Journey-fashion interactive Batman story, “The Wayne Investigation.” The story has you telling the Echo the place you need to go as you seek for clues following the homicide of Bruce Wayne’s mother and father. Relying on how properly you do, the voice-guided recreation lasts anyplace between a quick 5 minutes (clearly, not the profitable path) to a prolonged forty minutes — at that time, it is principally a radio drama for the web period.

That is finally a promo for the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Daybreak of Justice, and you will invariably be introduced with an opportunity to ask about showtimes for the film. If you will get previous the not-so-delicate plug, although, it is proof that the Echo’s voice instructions could be helpful for far more than easy requests. Hopefully, it results in extra video games and different experiences that do not cease after a single response.
