Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Coming to Consoles and PC

Warner Bros has announced today that the 2013 handheld game, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, will be making its way to consoles along with the PC later this year.

The game will be heading to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC through Steam on April 1st in North America, and April 2nd in Europe.

Blackgate was released originally in 2013 alongside Batman: Arkham Origins for the Nintendo 3DS and the PlayStation Vita. Reviews for the game were less than stellar; though us here at MONG did not review the game.

The game will not get a physical release; but it will be distributed through Xbox Live Marketplace, the PlayStation Store, Nintendo Eshop, and Steam.  It comes with a new map and hint systems, along with objective tracking, 5.1 surround sound and a fully voiced narrative.

Rumors started a few weeks ago that the game would be coming to other platforms when a leaked XBLA listing showed the game was in development.

My Opinion

I own a PlayStation Vita, but I never had much interest in this game. Though I’m sure there are many people that want to play this game but didn’t have a 3DS or Vita, and for those people, I’m happy there is now an alternative for them.
