After creating successful mobile renditions of Batman: Arkham City Lockdown and Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios is returning with another iOS/Android brawler this month based on Batman: Arkham Origins.
Like the mobile version of Injustice, Batman: Arkham Origins will be a free-to-play brawler that uses visuals from the console version. Once again, players will tap on the screen to rain blows down upon some nameless henchman or one of the game’s eight assassin opponents. A row of special attack icons line the bottom of the screen, which should also look familiar to those who downloaded Injustice’s mobile adaptation.
Instead of unlocking additional DC Comics characters, players will be able to clothe the Caped Crusader in a series of new suits with different powers and abilities. Confirmed suits include costumes previously seen in storylines like “Red Son,” “Earth Two,” “Thrillkiller,” “The Liberty Files,” and “Batman Beyond.” Linking your Warner Bros. Interactive ID with the game will unlock some of these suits in the console edition of Arkham Origins.
Batman: Arkham Origins will be available to download from the iOS App Store in conjunction with the console edition’s October 25 release. The Android edition will be available sometime “this Holiday.”
