Think prison life’s bad? Having been there twice already, let me tell you, it’s worse than what the movies and books would have you think. Imagine having to shape your masticatory and gastrovascular secretionary actions around predetermined intervals of time throughout the day, with no exceptions. Imagine a life devoid of privacy in being forced to share a toilet bowl in a confined space with a burly ex-construction worker named Red. Now, with that gruesome reality in mind, picture being in a prison taken over by three maniacal super-convicts bent on causing mayhem and destruction upon their escape. Seems like just enough to drive you over the deep end, right? Well, in Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate — Deluxe Edition for Wii U, you, the player, as the eponymous Batman, find yourself in that very peculiar predicament.

Armature Studio and Warner Bros. Interactive have prepared a new update for Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate: Deluxe Edition. The thing is, we’re not sure what it changes/adds at the moment. We’ll let you know if we receive any additional information.


Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition is out today – in North America that is. Wondering how much space the game requires? You’ll need to reserve about 2,842 MB on the Wii U or an external hard drive.


Update: The European release will follow later this month.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition is launching today on various digital platforms, including the Wii U eShop. Pricing is set at $19.99.

Warner Bros. Interactive has confirmed the previously-leaked Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition. The game is due out on April 1 in North America and April 2 in Europe for $19.99 / £15.99 on Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC via digital download.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition is very much the same game that launched for 3DS and PS Vita late last year. However, the new version sports enhanced high-definition 2.5-D graphics, a new map & hint system for improved navigation and objective tracking, 5.1 surround sound, and a fully voiced narrative. Players can also unlock the new Zero Year Batsuit skin by registering for or signing into a Warner Bros. ID (WBID) account.
