UPDATE: IGN’s got more info, about villains, fast travel, and more.
GameInformer’s got the scoop on the long-rumored prequel to Rocksteady’s hit Arkham Asylum series, Batman: Arkham Origins: “As the title suggests, the game takes place years before both of the previous Arkham titles when a young, unrefined Batman encounters many supervillains for the first time.” Notably, Rocksteady is not developing this entry, having handed the reins over to Warner Bros. Games Montreal.
A handheld tie-in, titled Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, is being headed up by Armature Studio, and will release on Vita and 3DS alongside Arkham Origins (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC) on Oct. 25.

There are still three or four things that people haven’t seen – some of them very subtle things.
