You know that recent Batman game that nobody liked? Did you know it had a portable secondary game that nobody played? Did you hear that it was to be released to the XBLA? Now it’s being released to everything else. Today, it has been announced that the portable 2D Metroid-Vania style Batman game will be ported and updated and renamed when it comes to consoles under the moniker of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition being released for the last-gen or current gen whatever. The PS3 via PSN Xbox 360 via XBLA, WiiU via eShop and PC via Steam. Now this news may not come as a surprise to some of you since the exact same thing happened to Resident Evil: Revelations, and  Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberations.

Now for the benefits of those who have played the game, what’s different this time. Well, updated HD graphics, a new map and hint system, full-voiced storyline, and 5.1 surround sound. But as a whole it’s the same exact game. The game will be released on April Fools day: The one day you should stay off the internet and play this game just for that, in the US for $20.00 and the UK a day later for £15.99. The funny to consider is that it’s $10-$20 cheaper that buying the portable versions.

So, look at that another AAA-ish game that was released to portable has been ported to the console. I’m starting to think why these developers even bother. I guess it’s to make it available to everyone but them why wait a year and play coy as if they aren’t ever going to make

    I might add that unlike Liberation, Blackgate wasn’t a huge Vita exclusive. I doubt it’d hurt the Vita.
