The first Batman: Arkham game to hit handheld systems is looking pretty cool so far, mixing motion comic animation with the hard-hitting action we’ve come to love in the console games. I’m especially interested to see how well the game holds up on 3DS. Although I love me some Mario and Luigi action, Fire Emblem Awakening and Monster Hunter, I’d love to get a good action-adventure game on 3DS.
The new trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate gives us a taste of the story, art style and gameplay. It’s also got some of that Batman-Catwoman action we love so much. I’m just anxious to lick off a solid bone-crunching combo against Solomon Grundy, who will be joining the ranks of Black Mask and The Joker in Blackgate.
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate hits PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS on Oct. 25, 2013. Batman: Arkham Origins for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U will be available on the same date.
