Many people may view Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate as dessert to the main course served up by Batman: Arkham Origins, but this would be underestimating the talent at Armature Studio – the developer behind this companion game for portable devices.
The Blackgate team is comprised of many experienced developers formerly from Retro Studios, not least director Mark Pacini who also helmed all three Metroid Prime games.
Warner Bros. recently released the debut trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate showcasing the game’s stylish, fully voiced cutscenes and 2.5D visuals. Judging by the trailer, the Caped Crusader will have his work cut out for him after infiltrating Blackgate Prison – which is predictably chockablock with psychopaths such as the Joker.
Take a look below:
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate will be released for PS Vita and 3DS on October 25th worldwide – the same day that Batman: Arkham Origins arrives on PC and home consoles.
