Viva la Vita: "While Warner Brothers Montreal had most of the spotlight this week with their announcement of Batman Arkham Origins for PS3/360/Wii U/PC the publisher also announced a separate game coming to PSVita and 3DS. Developed by Armature Studio, Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate is a sequel to the upcoming console game. Rather than being a third person action game like the console releases Blackgate takes a different approach and is a 2.5D Metroid/Castlevania inspired side-scroller. Now Armature have revealed on Twitter that the game will be running on a modified version of the Bluepoint Engine, a middleware suite developed by Bluepoint Games, the studio known for Blast Factor, and the HD conversions of God of War I & II, Shadow of the Colosus & Ico, as well as the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. This is good news for Vita owners because Bluepoint did the Vita port of PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, which ran on the Bluepoint Engine, and is one of the most technically impressive games on the platform as it runs at native res, and 60 frames per second. This will mark the first time the Bluepoint Engine will be used on a Nintendo platform."
