Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Developer Explains Why It Left Nintendo

The developer behind upcoming Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita game Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Armature, consists of former Retro Studios employees Mark Pacini, Todd Keller and Jack Matthews. In an interview with Game Informer, Pacini revealed why he and his colleagues left the Nintendo subsidiary. Pacini said that while he thinks Nintendo is an “awesome company,” he didn’t like how working for the video game giant meant he was obliged to work solely on games for its hardware. (3DS, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, PS Vita, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Glad nothing bad was said.

I wish them the best and I hope that it is getting a WiiU Version or at least a WiiU Port...

Even though I am more interested in what they must know something about the project Retro is working on....

It's good to know they still have a relationship with Retro.

Anyone coming out of that company should be pretty awesome. :)

I can't wait to see how this turns out. Just...please build it with the Vita's architecture in mind?

first id like to are a rare breed sherimae... a chick who loves games and actually reads articles and comments on the articles with a level of gaming knowledge that most dudes lack on this very site... your bf must be girl is just now excepting my gaming habit and we been together five years now, how I wish she liked the habit I enjoy. anyway good job

on topic
this was a classy article...hopefully they did a great job with batman and I wish them luck on this new road of workimg on games for all systems.
I think making games for all this new generation may be difficult if you make one for every system... I mean ps4/720 is a new beast to tackle ...then the wiiu is a basically a ps3/360 with a tablet stylized controller you have to consider doing something with. then the vita a beastly handheld with front and back touch screens to work with and the 3ds and its double screen and 3D tek to play with... imagine making the same game for each..your looking at at least 3 different versions of the same game.

lol yeah, once you have the gamers sickness their is no cure..
my gf is more of a zuma fan tho, about as far as she will go smh.

as far as armature goes im pretty sure they will be fine, I just think its more work and cost when developing for multiplatforms which leads to delays....ala rayman origins. im not saying they shouldn't do it just that it can hurt some companies through cost n stuff..
