While patrolling Gotham, Batman captures Catwoman and takes her to Blackgate. Two weeks later, Captain Gordon contacts Batman to aid in the recapture of some inmates set free by an explosion. The prison is now divided into three main territories, each one held by the Joker, Penguin and Black Mask and Batman must defeat each to retake the prison.

This game continues to surprise me with
its success. Sure, 230k won't set the
world alight but for a western developed
handheld title, it's not bad. Might be
helped by the fact there are other 2D
side-scrollers on Vita like Muramasa and
Dragon's Crown, plus a slew of indies,
so it may actually be a pretty
attractive platform for fans of the

Yeah, I thought this was doomed to do
terribly but it's had some legs,
especially in Europe. Might reach 200k
early in the new year, which wouldn't
be a complete disaster.

I wonder if
Europe is going to start pulling more
software weight on Vita. There's a lot
more out there than in the USA.

This has recovered from its terrible FW
pretty well, seems to be about to ride a
nice christmas boost. LTD is could end
at respectable levels

It sold shitty on its own merit though.
So I'm not expecting another Batman
game on the Vita anytime soon. But yeah
the Western 3DS audience is the typical
Nintendo audience, kiddy games, and
Nintendo's evergreens sell well, not
much else.

It sold more than the 3DS version.
