An Arkham Origins spin-off, Blackgate, is coming to Vita and 3DS on the same day as the full game arrives on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC. The above trailer shows off the basics of the story and some gameplay.
It has “gripping 2.5D graphics” (I don’t know how they’re gripping), as well as apparently “capturing the genuine Arkham feel”. It’s developed by WB Games Montreal, who previously ported and upgraded Arkham City for Wii U.
Considering that Killzone: Mercenary – a full first person shooter for the Vita – is out next week, this game seems rather disappointing. It’ll be interesting to see the differences present between the Vita and 3DS versions, providing there are any.
Both Arkham Origins and Blackgate release on October 25th.
