Batman: Arkham Origins dated for Japan, Blackgate 3DS not coming over
It’s been a strange week for Batman: Arkham Origins on Nintendo platforms. First we heard that the Wii U version wouldn’t include multiplayer. Now we’ve learned that Batman: Arkham Origins – Blackgate 3DS (the handheld companion to Origins on consoles) won’t be releasing in Japan.
To be clear, Blackgate is still coming to Japan. But for some unknown reason, Warner Bros. is only bringing the PS Vita version over. The 3DS game is nowhere to be found in any of the recent Japanese announcements.
In other news, all versions of Batman: Arkham Origins (console and portable) have been dated for Japan. The title will be out on December 5. Warner Bros. will be making Deathstroke DLC available to players on Wii U, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 as a limited bonus.
