Batman: Arkham Origins received mixed reviews when it came out late last year. Darryn enjoyed it in parts, but found it repetitive and broken in other parts. However, a different version of the game was released on PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS – and now it looks like you’ll be able to play it on Xbox.

While neither Warner Bros nor Microsoft has announced as much, a listing appeared on the Xbox Marketplace website pointing to a console release for Blackgate. This will be a deluxe version, complete with new content:

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition amplifies the 2.5-D game with new maps, enemy encounters, difficulty levels, batsuits, and enhanced visuals. A companion game to Batman: Arkham Origins, players can continue the storyline of the console version and discover more details of the Dark Knight’s past. Featuring stealth gameplay, free-flow combat, and Batman’s famed arsenal of gadgets, the genuine Arkham experience is reproduced in a deep, action packed side-scrolling adventure.

Really, 2.5-D? What is that, even? Still, it looked like a cool little game on handheld – I liked the idea that you could pick the order in which you fought the bosses. It sort of reminded me of classic Megaman. It could be a lot of fun to play Xbox 360 and maybe even make up for the fact that they’re not fixing the current console version of Batman: Arkham Origins.

We didn’t just get the listing to show off that it’s coming – we also got pretty pictures! Check them out:
