New Batman Arkham Games Hit Wii U & 3DS This Fall

Warner Bros. Interactive and DC Entertainment have officially unveiled the latest games in the Batman Arkham series. This October will see the release of Batman: Arkham Origins for home consoles and its portable sequel, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate. The story for Arkham Origins is set several years before the previous Arkham games and will introduce a younger Batman to some of his bigger foes for the first time. In an interesting spin, Batman will find himself hunted by eight assassins who have traveled to Gotham City on Christmas Eve with the intention of killing the caped crusader. Blackgate will be a "2.5D Metroidvania game" and will take place shortly after the home console game likely dealing with the fallout of that story. The 3DS & PS Vita title is being developed by Armature Studios which was formed by a lot of the key people who worked on the Metroid Prime series which is pretty exciting.
