In Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate's latest trailer we get an introduction to the premise of the PS Vita/3DS companion game to Batman Arkham Origins. Blackgate technically comes after Origins and before Arkham Asylum, but what's odd to me is how similar the premise is between Blackgate and Asylum. The city loses control of a facility and Batman has go in and clean up the mess.
Seriously, just replace Arkham with the Blackgate penitentiary and now Batman has to follow the exact same scenario as the original game. I suppose they have to justify the shifting of insane criminals to Arkham somehow, but it's just rather surprising to see them covering the same sort of ground. Just because it's a handheld game doesn't mean it can't create a unique experience.
Anyway, we get our first look at Catwoman and Bronze Tiger in this trailer, which will be Batman's chronological first meeting with both. Of course, we'll also meet Joker, Penguin and Black Mask, which is kind of a spoiler for Arkham Origins. Psst, Batman wins! Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate launches October 25 on both PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS.
