Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate Gameplay Video
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

We've seen a lot of footage Batman: Arkham Origins over the past few weeks, but relatively little from its handheld sibling, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Blackgate developer Armature Studio are making up for it today with 10 whole minutes of gameplay footage, narrated by game director Mark Pacini. From the looks of it, the game's a solid, 2.5D version of the Arkham formula. Check out the video after the jump.

New ‘Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate’ Screens Show Silent Takedowns, Bosses And More

Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate

It may seem like Batman: Arkham Origins and its mobile tie-in title have been getting all of the (bat)tention lately, but Warner Bros. Games Montreal hasn't forgotten about the corresponding Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate title for Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. CA's own Chris Sims liked what he got to play of the game during SDCC 2013, and new screens from the title seem to corroborate what he had to say about its linear-yet-3D gameplay and combat. Batman can even be seen employing a silent takedown, zipping around a fiery environment, using his new Explosive Gel Launcher and bracing for a fight with Solomon Grundy. You know, solid Batman stuff.

‘Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate’ Boss Battles ‘Akin To How Mega Man Used To Do It’

Focusing mostly on sidescrolling action, the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate has been characterized as a "MetroidVania" experience, much to the delight of gamers like, say... Chris Sims. In a new interview with Polygon, BAOB director Mark Pacini may have sweetened the pot even further for players as he likened the title to yet another classic gaming series. How does Batman with a Mega Man twist sound?

New ‘Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate’ Trailer Reveals Solomon Grundy, More [Video]


Not to be overshadowed by its big-console brother, the WB Games handheld prison-action game Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is showing off some of the trick it's got up its "Metroid-Vania" sleeve.

Among them: A lot of bad guys, including The Joker, The Penguin, Black Mask, Deadshot, and the just-revealed Solomon Grundy. Catwoman's there, too (and also in a new screen shot from the game). See if you can spot any more in the trailer after the cut.

Testing Out ‘Arkham Origins: Blackgate': It’s Everything The Arkham Games Have To Offer [SDCC 2013]


The second it was announced and referred to as a "MetroidVania" style game about Batman beating up crooks, I wanted to play Arkham Origins: Blackgate. Seriously, if you threw in Bulbasaur and the Third Street Saints, it would be every single thing I want out of video games. At Comic-Con, I had the chance to go through a demo, and for better or worse (mostly better), it's everything you expect out of an Arkham game.

Mattel Reveals ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ Batman And Deathstroke Action Figures


Not to be outdone by DC Collectibles' ongoing Batman: Arkham Origins/Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate video game tie-in action figure reveals, Mattel's unloaded two new promotional images of its 6" B:AO Batman and Deathstroke toys. The timing is solid considering last week's steady stream of E3 reveals, including new gameplay footage and screen shots of Batman confronting an army of goons hired by Black Mask to wipe him from the streets of Gotham. Serving as Batman's most capable rival in terms of combat, Deathstroke's been a major player in game promos, which is probably why Mattel's honed in on the increasingly action figure-ified villain for its retail line.The Batman figure seems not to include any overt accessories, although Mattel may stick him with at least a Batarang. Deathstroke, on the other hand, is armed to the teeth with a pistol, rifle, staff, sword and scabbard.
