Batman: Arkham Origins is heavily inspired by the Legends of the Dark Knight comic series.
According to creative director Eric Holmes in an interview with Game Informer, "The main inspiration for Arkham origins is the comic book series Legends of the Dark Knight. It’s a series that started in 1989 and followed in the wake of a big trend of going back in time to examine early career years which I think was started primarily from Batman: Year One."
“Legends of the Dark Knight represented really important stories for the Batman mythologies because every time Batman met someone, or encountered some idea in the world – for example, the Venom drug – it was the first time he’d ever run across it rather than the 80th time,” he added.
Batman: Arkham Origins was announced last week, and will be coming this Fall 2013 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
