Just because it's April Fools' Day doesn't mean the Dark Knight will be laughing at the Joker's new, comical management of Blackgate prison.
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate
The 2.5D adventure known as Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, previously only available on 3DS and PlayStation Vita, is making its way to consoles in a new Deluxe Edition.
It looks as if the portable sequel to Batman: Arkham Origins is making its way to Xbox Live Arcade.
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is the portable sequel to Batman: Arkham Origins. Both games were released at the same time, so anyone who picks up Blackgate before playing Origins is in for a few spoilers, since it takes place three months after the events of console version. It turns out that Blackgate prison has been taken over by the inmates and is sectioned off by the Joker, Black Mask and the Penguin. Each villain controls a section of the prison and must be stopped before the situation turns into something more than an uprising.
The Batman: Arkham series has been wildly successful to this point, but the crime-fighting has been mainly consigned to consoles. That changes this year with the release of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, a new portable title for the Vita and 3DS. We got a little hands-on time with the Vita version at New York Comic Con, and even though Blackgate is a completely different style, we're eager to get our Batman on the go.
