Armature studios has put out a 10-minute gameplay walkthrough video for its Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate title, which is a mobile game for the PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS. In it the developer takes you through the Cell Block section of the game where you have to ward off threats from Penguin’s forces en route to saving the day.

It’s clear from the video that this game will speak to fans of the Metroid-vania genre of gameplay. It features the same style of 2D platforming found in those types of games, as well as the need to back track to old sections of a level to unlock items or sections you may have not been able to secure the first time through. For a mobile title the visuals look fantastic, although it’s not clear if the 3DS version will be as crisp.

If you’ve been wanting to bring a Batman Akrham title with you on the go, then Blackgate will be your best chance to do so. Head on down below to preview it in action before you make your final purchase.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is now available for the 3DS and PS Vita.
