Batman Arkham OriginsOf all the news circulating the Caped Crusader’s upcoming prequel, Batman Arkham Origins‘ little sibling of Blackgate hasn’t nearly gotten enough light. The portable “Batroidvania” on the Vita and 3DS finally meets public eyes with a trailer.

Have a glance at the story, which apes most of what Arkham Asylum did (Villains with grudges seek revenge and trap Bats within a contained, correctional environment). As for the hints of gameplay, imagine the things done in the Arkham series before only with a limited camera view and a downgrade in visuals. Though not graphically or thematically impressive out the gate (heh), the distinct look of the motion-comic cut scenes sure does impress.

Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate releases October 25th on the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS.
