Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition for XBLA Leaked With Screens

Originally a spin-off title for PS Vita, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is seemingly heading to the Xbox Live Arcade as a revamped 'Deluxe Edition', according to a listing that's leaked onto

Alongside the listing is a handful of screenshots, a release date and the following descriptive blurb: "Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition amplifies the 2.5-D game with new maps, enemy encounters, difficulty levels, batsuits, and enhanced visuals. A companion game to Batman: Arkham Origins, players can continue the storyline of the console version and discover more details of the Dark Knight’s past. Featuring stealth gameplay, free-flow combat, and Batman’s famed arsenal of gadgets, the genuine Arkham experience is reproduced in a deep, action packed side-scrolling adventure."

And that side-scrolling Bat adventure is swooping onto XBLA next month, if the listing proves to be accurate (and it very obviously must be). Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition is slated to arrive on March 25th. Check out the leaked screens below.

Hmmm so no need for a Ps vita since the games seem to be coming to consoles anyway that seems a bit of a issue for Sony handheld future

I heard it was the best Vita game last year.

I'll get it and AC Liberation someday.

I'm happy about this, I've been thinking of picking up the 3DS version for awhile. Glad I put that off.

@5 You must not have heard of/played Tearaway.

Seriously, where did you hear that? Everyone that reviewed/played it gave it an average score at best.

So they announce a port of Blackgate after they announce that they won't FIX Origins? Money talks and bullshit walks.

@11 Blackgate was developed by a different studio than the console version of arkhum origins so this release has no connection to them not fixing the bugs.

If this is the same price as AC Liberation than I will defo pick it up. Love every one of the Arkhum games.

Shame, I wanted this but after yesterdays bug bullshit im not going to get it.

@12 it may not be the same dev but its the same publisher. Who do you think it is that makes these sort of anti consumer ideas?

@12 Same price? The Liberation price point for a rehash is atrocious...

It was also on 3DS, which is one of the better selling systems out. Not sure why you'd ignore that and say it was just a Vita game.

That said, I heard nothing but claims of mediocrity.

I had been meaning to get this on 3DS, but other, more important 3DS games took priority. Depending on the price, I'd get this on XBLA though.

@12 Thats not the point. The fact is the publisher Warner Bros shat all over their fans yesterday. Sad day for gaming.

Even if i wanted to pick it up i wouldnt purely out of principle.

Nice I'll be picking this up! Sorry guys but I loved Origins and experienced absolutely no gaming bugs so I'm not really bothered by the statement made yesterday. Hopefully this game is good even tho the reviews have been meh but I'm not as rough on things as most people. I can find the good in almost anything.

@#9 Exactly my thoughts, I remember reading some reviews saying it was mediocre at best. not sure where everyone on here is getting their info from saying this is bad news for Vita or that it was best game for it last year. Tearaway/KZ:Mercenary way were better just to name a few... I'll give this a miss, extra stuff and prettier graphics don't fool me.

I'm with several of the other posters here. I've loved every Arkham game, and as much as I would LOVE to pick this up on Arcade, I can't. Not after just YESTERDAY they said they didn't care about fixing the game when they could be making money instead. So no Warner Bros, you won't be getting my money here.

Well at lease from yesterdays news now I know that it was WB fault that games like Gotham City Impostors and Guardians of Middle Earth wasn't Monolith's fault that they were left to rot as they moved on to the next game in production.
