Golly, the games industry moves quickly. Just the other day we reported that a PEGI rating for Shadow Complex Remastered had appeared, and now we’re happy to report that the game is officially hitting PC and consoles soon.
Good news, Batman fans: the 3DS and PlayStation Vita “exclusive” Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is heading to bigger platforms. The 2.5D side-scroller was developed by Armature Studios as a spin-off release alongside the rather lacklustre Arkham Origins. Armature, in case you were wondering, is a team that was put together by ex-Retro Studio developers – the guys behind the Metroid Prime games.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment confirmed the upscaled re-release of Blackgate will be hitting PC (via Steam), PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360 at the beginning of April. The downloadable game will feature exclusive Batman skins (yay?) as well as better graphics and full surround sound.
The upscaled release has been dubbed the Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition. It’ll set you back $19.99. Hit the jump for the announcement trailer and get ready to get your 2.5D Batman side-scrolling on.
There was a metallic taste in your mouth when you woke up. That’s how you come to on this blasted rock; with blood in the back of your throat. The UES Contact Light is gone, and judging by the corpses of your compatriots it looks like you’re the only one left. You’ve remained cooped up in this escape pod for three days – with scratching and growls on the outside – but the rotting stench has forced your hand. You eject yourself from the capsule to find a world not unlike our own – similar, except for the shattered moon in the sky. You check your weapon and breathe in deeply, smelling ozone in the air.
The ninja, like the zombie, the pirate, and the zombie-hunting pirate cheerleader, is a thing that will always stalk pop culture like a panther would a wounded clown. I should warn you now that I am one of those who thinks this is wonderful; almost everything, from cereal to your average moodily lit rooftop, benefits from the addition of ninja.
This is doubly true for video games, and I present proof in the form of Mark of the Ninja.
