Batman: Arkham Origins for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Windows Phone and Android, will be released later this year, Warner Bros Interactive and DC Entertainment have announced.

Developed by Mortal Kombat and Injustice studio NeverRealm, the mobile title is described as a free-to-play brawler.

The game pits players as Batman against a number of DC Comics' most deadly assassins as they fight their way through Gotham City's dangerous locales.

"We created an integrated gaming ecosystem between the Batman: Arkham Origins mobile and console games, which delivers rewards and unlocks that provide greater experiences for players," said Ed Boon, creative director, NetherRealm Studios. "The mobile game goes hand-in-hand with what is offered on the other platforms."

The iOS versions will be released in the same launch window as the console game (October 25), with other versions to follow later in the year.
