28comments Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate to run on the Bluepoint Engine
Posted Tue 16th Apr 2013 1:18am by David Dawson
While Warner Brothers Montreal had most of the spotlight this week with their announcement of Batman Arkham Origins for PS3,360,Wii U and PC.
the publisher also announced a separate game coming to PSVita and 3DS.
Developed by Armature Studio, Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate is a sequel to the upcoming console game.
Rather than being a third person action game like the console releases, Blackgate takes a different approach and is a 2.5D Metroid/Castlevania inspired side-scroller.
Now Armature have revealed on Twitter that the game will be running on a modified version of the Bluepoint Engine, a middleware suite developed by Bluepoint Games, the studio known for Blast Factor, and the HD conversions of God of War I & II, Shadow of the Colosus & Ico, as well as the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.
This is good news for Vita owners because Bluepoint did the Vita port of PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, which ran on the Bluepoint Engine, and is one of the most technically impressive games on the platform as it runs at native res, and 60 frames per second. This will mark the first time the Bluepoint Engine will be used on a Nintendo platform.
For people who might not know who Armature Studio is, and that's fine as they're a fairly recent company.
Started by former employees of Retro Studios (Metroid Prime, Donkey Kong Country: Returns, etc.)
the company has only shipped one product to date, the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PSVita.
They were also working on a canceled first person shooter Mega Man X reboot.
Not so coincidently, the studio is located right next to Bluepoint games.
Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate will be in stores on October 25th, the same day as Batman Arkham Origins for home platforms.

I'm still not really sure how I feel about Microsoft maknig all the Halo games. On the one hand, I don't really think it will change that much. But on the other hand, I think maybe it won't feel the same without Bungie.

A month if possible. It still won't be perecft, but close enough.I once had a chance to revise a chapter I wrote for someone else's book a year after I wrote it. (The book's publication had been delayed.) It was terrible; made no sense. I threw out a third of it, and totally overhauled the rest. Glad that first version isn't out there in print somewhere.

Kevin Conroy was the Batman I grew up with too. And making the game wiouhtt Kevin Conroy is the ultimate disrespect to die hard Batman Fans. I'm not convinced that Kevin Conroy can't change his vocal chords to a younger Batman. Kevin Conroy is a professional voice actor, this is what he does, his job. You're not even giving him a chance. If you ask me, you people don't know talent when you see one and also selfish. If no Kevin Conroy, then I won't support the game at all. Remember it's not the quantity that makes Batman good, it's the quality.
