This is a disaster! It should be Rocksteady all the way.

This is one of the few times where you've got to wonder whether the handheld game will be better then the home console game.

On the one hand you have WB Montreal, who up until this is really an unproven developer when it comes to the big time games. They've had a smaller project based on Looney toons, and also did the port for Arkham city for Wii U. However taking full reign over the Batman Arkham franchise, especially when their predecessor Rock Steady was so accomplished in that series is quite the jump. Expectations are high.

On the over hand you have a armuture studio a smaller, whose previous works was the MGS HD collection for Vita showing they know something about handheld development. Then you have that company being run by key former Retro employees who help make the master piece metroid prime. And to top it off their making a 2.5D Metroid style game, with the only other character (other then samus herself) who could fit that kind genre! Batman! And since this is a handheld game expectation are far less, so potentially this could be a surprise hit!

We still need to see gameplay of both versions though.

Bad news and this series had the promise of being one of the greats. I'm interested to know what RockSteady are working on next. If it's another superhero game then it'll have to be smoeone as popular as Batman and the only DC one is probably Superman.
