Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate will be available for the 3DS and PS Vita on October 25, alongside its console big brother, Batman: Arkham Origins. Today, developer Armature Studio and publisher WB Games have given us our first look at the side-scrolling action title in a new trailer.
It seems that the famed jail is under “New Management” as Batman will have to battle Black Mask, The Penguin, The Joker, and Solomon Grundy in the bowels of Blackgate Prison. It’s a good thing that Catwoman is around to offer her assistance:
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate brings the Batman Arkham games to a handheld format for the first time to Sony and Nintendo handheld systems. Featuring stealth gameplay, free-flow combat, and Batman’s infamous gadgets, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate captures the genuine Arkham feel players have come to appreciate. With gripping 2.5D graphics, fully voiced narrative, and a captivating storyline, you’ll will explore deep inside the bowels of this remote island penitentiary that plays an important role in the Arkham universe.
I have to admit, the comic-style cutscenes look great.
