There’s a new Batman: Arkham game incoming, and it’s a prequel! Introducing Batman: Arkham Origins, which will be set years before Batman: Arkham Asylum. It seems like they’ll be putting you in the shoes of a young Bruce Wayne, and he’ll be meeting some of the most important characters within the Batman universe for the very first time.
The game is currently slated for the XBOX 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC, and a handheld rendition of the game, named Batman: Arkham Origins Blacklight, will be made for both the 3DS and PS Vita. The hendheld version of the game will serve as a companion game for its console brethren, and will be set in a 2.5D world (so pretty much a nice-looking platformer). The game is now available for pre-order at all major retailers, and will launch October 25, 2013!
