Batman: Arkham Origins announced for Wii U
Warner Bros. Interactive have announced the next title in the Batman series as Batman: Arkham Origins, which will be available for the Wii U, PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. No mention of the PS4 or Xbox 720 was made. The game will be developed by WB Games Montreal instead of Rocksteady, the developer of the first two games. The setting is several years before the previous Arkham games, making Origins a prequel.
Players will take control of a much younger Batman, who meets several of the series’ characters for the first time. In addition to the console title, a Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita title called Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is also in development. Both the handheld and console games will launch on October 25th, 2013.
