The lights are on
The Vita and 3DS companion to Batman: Arkham Origins is making its way from portable systems to home consoles and PC. Warner Bros. has confirmed Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition for a spring release.
In addition to the 2.5D gameplay, the new version will come with revamped graphics and sound along with new skins. More importantly, the navigation and objective tracking have been revamped, addressing a major criticism. The title is slated for release on April 1 on Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. For more, check out our review of the portable version.

This looks fun.. reminds me of the GBA batman game based off begins.
Already have it on the 3DS. Will go back and finish it after I'm done with Henry Hatsworth.
Ugh! Avoid at all cost, terrible game in my opinion.
Got it for 3DS and was a real disappointment in my opinion. Played 20 minutes of it. Maybe Ill pick it back up to finish someday but was just really bad. Hope this version will be better for those that get it.
The fact they're attempting to fix one of the major issues with the game has me interested. I lost interest in the 3DS version due to the fact I had no idea what I was doing thanks to the horrible navigation.
Heard mixed feelings about this game. Might check it out as a huge fan of the Arkham games.
Oh heck yeah, I could just get this on my PlayStation 3 instead of my 3DS now!
Looks pretty cool, I'll probably check it out. BIG Fan of the entire Arkham universe!
And so this is supposed to be the complete version? Because this seems like another way to make money since it didn't do to hot the first time around.
I am a huge fan of the Arkham games, but origins was terrible compared to city and asylum. And blackgate looks horrible. I feel like this would be a waste of money...
I just don't get all of the hate for this game.
I thought it effectively scratched that 2D Metroid itch that so few games manage (Shadow Complex and The Swapper are the last two I remember off of the top of my head, and that's across a multi-year spread).
And the 3D was absolutely gorgeous in its implementation, to my eye.
Yeah, the combat was clunky, and didn't translate that balletic free-form "fight five guys at once and somehow come out on top, gracefully" style of the console Arkham games. But that's my only knock. I fully enjoyed my time with it, nosing around the prison with newly found abilities to see what crannies I could fit into that I had to leave alone before.
This looks sweet. We will see.
Eh, skip for me, but interested to see what it looks like anyway.
There is a WiiU version? I didn't expect that after Arkham Origins undersold so much on the WiiU. I'll make sure to support this one right away.
