In 2009, the British studio Rocksteady released the game Batman: Arkham Asylum for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Four years ago, we learned that the title could also be released on Nintendo’s Wii console. The modified version was prepared by the Red Fly Studio team, but the project was canceled. You can see the demo, which was created in a few weeks, below.
But as it turned out, Batman was also able to target the Nintendo DS handheld in the first installment of the Arkham series. Its a prototype last week published on the Internet a user nicknamed Robin64. This is an early version of a never-finished game, which was worked on by the British studio Full Fat. Founded in 1996, the team specializes in handhelds and mobile platforms. For example, he created Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for NDS and Sid Meier’s Pirates! For PSP.
Batman for NDS could be released by Eidos Interactive. However, its developers clearly did not go too far. The Arkham Asylum prototype contains only two small locations – the Gotham roofs and the library. One screen shows the action itself in 3D, the other the player watches the map. That is, if it worked. Batman encounters enemies in the demo, but he can’t fight them, they are not active. Bruce carries his typical toys with him, but you won’t enjoy them much either.
Robin64 writes that the public has not yet had the opportunity to test the prototype and is right. Rather than an ongoing project, it acts as a proof-of-concept to prove that Batman could theoretically work on DS. In the end, the Arkham series as such fought its way to pocket platforms. Batman: Arkham City Lockdown focused on iOS and Android in 2011 and 2013, respectively. In 2013 and 2014, respectively, Batman: Arkham Origins was released on iOS and Android. In 2016, Batman: Arkham Underworld also focused on iOS and Android.
However, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate from 2013 by Armature Studio, originally for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita handhelds, has certainly left the biggest mark among classic games. The game acted as an add-on to Batman: Arkham Origins and is set three months after its events. Bruce meets Catwoman here for the first time. The title was later released on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
