Player progression leads to different endings.

Further details for the compelling handheld counterpart to 'Batman: Origins' have come to light including the game's length and possible endings. In an interview with the Escapist, the director of 'Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate,' Mark Pacini has shared some exciting stuff for those interested in the game.

First of all, the game will benefit from the same amazing voice talent as the console version, which includes fan favorite Kevin Conroy. This alone would make a decent game worth playing, but some other details are similarly provoking. According to Pacini, a single playthrough of the game should take around ten hours. And yet, due to the 'Mega Man' style progression, which allows players to choose which bosses to pursue at what times, multiple playthroughs will be key to accessing the game's different endings.

"The boss that you leave for last dictates the last half hour of the game."

"You can play the game three times through, get different things each time and the ending is different each time. Along with that we have suits that are only unlockable playing in a certain order. Each suit has a particular perk to it."
