Did you miss out on Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate? The 3DS and Vita only entry into the Batman: Arkham series. Well your in luck as the game is getting a shiny HD makeover and being put out as a downloadable title for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and Steam on April 2nd under the guise of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition.
Set in Gotham City’s less famous prison, Blackgate Penitentiary, in the wake of the events of Batman: Arkham Origins, Arkham Origins Blackgate sees the caped crusader sent in to investigate and put a stop to a gang-fueled uprising masterminded by The Joker, Black Mask & Penguin, using all of the tricks, gadgets and free flowing combat that fans have come to expect from the series, whilst also delving deeper into The Dark Knight’s own rich back story.
The upgrade is being performed by Armature Studios, the developer of the original 3DS and Vita versions, and features all of the content from the handheld versions with new high definition 2.5D graphics, 5.1 surround sound and a fully voiced narrative. In addition to all of the outfits included in the original release the Deluxe Edition will also feature an exclusive Zero Year Batsuit that ties into the current storyline in the Batman comics that can be unlocked by signing up for, or logging in to, your Warner Bros. ID account.
