Batman: Arkham Origins Has Specific Functionality For Wii U

WB Montreal not talking about DLC availability

Batman: Arkham Origins is the latest game in the Arkham series and will be appearing on a range of formats in October, including the Wii U.

This isn't the first game in the series to be available on Nintendo's home console as Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition was released upon its launch.

That game had several Wii U specific features and many have been wondering if Origins will get the same treatment.

In an interview with Joystiq, the game's Senior Producer Ben Mattes said the Wii U edition will have specific functionality developed for it but he didn't go into any real detail.

We're not talking about specific features but we're encouraging people to imagine. We obviously paid to attention to the Wii U platform and what sort of functionality makes sense for that platform.

In the same interview, Mattes said WB Montreal - the developer behind this iteration - was not talking about the platforms DLC will be coming to. Recent rumours have been circulating suggesting the Deathstroke DLC, which features two challenge maps and a couple of skins, will not be coming to the Wii U.

An advertisement showing the Deathstroke pack states that DLC is "not available on all platforms". We'll just have to wait and see if the DLC will be available for the Wii U version, but based on the previous track record with the DLC of other games we're not overly optimistic.

What are your thoughts on the Wii U functionality. What do you imagine will be implemented? Let us know in the comment section below.
