Publisher Warner Bros has announced that Batman: Arkham Origins will be getting a companion game released simultaneously on the game’s launch day. The companion game will be developed by NetherRealm Studios and will be a brawler. It will be hitting iOS devices for free, and the Android version will follow shortly after.
NetherRealm studios has some experience with brawlers, since the company is primarily known for being responsible for bringing the Mortal Kombat franchise back into the limelight with 2011’s reboot of the series. The studio was also responsible for the smartphone and tablet versions of the games Injustice: Gods Among Us and Batman: Arham City Lockdown.
Hopefully, it'll be as good as this was
“We created an integrated gaming ecosystem between the Batman: Arkham Origins mobile and console games, which delivers rewards and unlocks that provide greater experiences for players,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “The mobile game goes hand-in-hand with what is offered on the other platforms.”
The mobile game pits players, as Batman, against a number of DC Comics’ assassins as they fight their way through Gotham City’s dangerous locales. As gamers progress, they can upgrade Batman to become more punishing by unlocking a number of unique Batsuits and earning in-game currency and rewards. In addition, those who also own the console versions of the game and are registered for a Warner Bros. ID (WBID) account will be able to access exclusive content not available otherwise.
The console version will be available worldwide October 25 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC.
