Bruce Wayne transforms from childhood to Batman in Arkham Origins TV spot

Batman: Arkham Origins, successor to the thoroughly excellent Arkham Asylum and its sequel Arkham City, launches on October 25, and Warner Bros. has released the official TV spot that will air in the run-up to release. It’s all-CGI and fairly short, but offers an emotional look into the growth of Bruce Wayne as he transforms from young and innocent, into the hardened superhero we all know.

Arkham Origins is set five years before Arkham Asylum, and offers players a chance to play as a less-refined Batman, one who is overconfident in his abilities and struggling with his past. Origins places him in the path of eight trained assassins, offering the first real threat to his life, forcing Batman to adapt and train to face his foes.
