    To 4 consoles and at the same time! But for long how has it been in development? Or was the announcement late?

      Four? Only two!

      • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

        I meant that we are getting Batman for 4 different consoles not Blackgate only.

        • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

          Oh. Well, in that case, we’re getting Batman on like six platforms this year—PC, 360, PS3, Wii U, 3DS, Vita.

            Good! :)

      It’s not clear how long it’s been in development, but I’d imagine they started last year since the game was announced in April. Since they’re working from Rocksteady’s existing tech, there should be a shorter turnaround as they don’t have to build all the tools themselves. That, and they’ve got Rocksteady on-hand to ask for advice and such.

    I can’t imagine it’s ever worth bothering with the Vita version of a Vita/3DS game. Talk about being held back.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I would agree with that, if he didn’t just say the games are being developed parallel to each other. Problems arise when the 3DS is the lead platform over the Vita or vice versa, which is not the case here.

      • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

        If anything, 3DS owners have more to be worried about, since Bluepoint is an engine that’s been used more on Vita and was ported to 3DS by Armature at the start of the project.

        I would imagine that’s why they got the questions about framerate with 3D turned on. Western developers seem to have a hard time squeezing the juice out of portables.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Now that you mention it, has Bluepoint been used on 3DS at all up to this point?

          I also just realized that Armature and Bluepoint both have former Retro staff, so Armature using Bluepoint’s engine gave me a chuckle. It’s a small world.

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            Yup! Small world indeed. And Armature said that they ported Bluepoint to 3DS themselves, so I would imagine this is the first 3DS game that will use it?

          • Solomon_Kano

            Interesting. I look forward to seeing how it runs on 3DS, then.

    • psycho_bandaid

      Eh, I guess which system you actually own matters too when deciding which version to buy.

    • Kefkiroth

      It’s not always about the Vita version having to have better graphics. Some may prefer the ergonomics of the Vita, while others may prefer the 3D of the 3DS, etc.
      Either version would be fine regardless of the Vita version being held back graphically.

      Welcome to the realistic world of multi-plats.. there will always be compromise.. but that’s not really a bad thing.

      In some business/dev strategy.. the game wouldn’t be financially sound on just a single platform (where it will be more chock full of specific featurettes on that system not possible [or easily implemented] on another).. and therefore, won’t exist.

      (CryTek anyone?)

      Just check out the game if it’s your thing.. then decide on the platform w/c you think would best fit your gaming habit/needs.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Glad to hear development is being handled parallel. Armature seems to know what they’re doing here, so I hope this turns out as awesome as it sounds. A 2.5D Batroidvania has no reason not to be awesome.

    Thanks for fixing the spelling of my last name. I had been spelling it with one t like a sucker.

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      Yikes! Fixed! Thanks for pointing this out. I apologize for the error!

  • Sergio Briceño

    These news needs a video so much.

  • SilentMC

    well at least he confirmed decent framerate, I hope they at least release a demo for both platforms.

  • HassanJamal

    Oh hey, that was my tweet :D https://twitter.com/ramkhai21
    Neat!

  • Cubx

    Oh what crap! The vita could handle a scaled down version or origins.

  • http://www.staticshin.com/ Akshat Jiwan Sharma

    I would love to see a video of game in action!

  • Prinny Dood

    I have bought systems but im getting the vita verison cause trophies and I want to support the vita.

  • WhyWai

    However they said, the screens they released all seem blurry and jaggy…
    Very skeptical on vita version’s graphic…

  • Kevin Schwarz

    Please don’t let it end up like Castlevania LoS Mirror of fate…
