Batman3 Ds

Batman: Arkham Origins is the first portable title in the series kicked off by Rocksteady, and is developed by some Retro Studios veterans that founded Armature. Those two facts alone have some intrigued, but footage has been limited and when Warner Bros. did show more yesterday it was of the Vita version; with the best will in the world, the 3DS version won't match its Sony compatriot visibly but can, in theory, deliver an experience at least as good.

Thankfully NintenDaan has stepped into the breach to bring us some footage of the 3DS version — out today in North America — in action. There's an introduction video that shows the first 18 minutes of the game, but below is a shorter video that features plenty of gameplay and more closely resembles the officially released Vita footage.

Check it out below and let us know whether you're planning to tackle Blackgate.
