I gotta hand it to Behemoth when it comes to creativity. Not only does their creativity shine through in their games, but even a release announcement has to be crafted in some way that makes it fun for us. Battleblock Theater, Behemoth’s next game, is scheduled to enter closed beta this Thursday but The Behemoth has taken incentive to excite us gamers by announcing that Battleblock Theater is set for release this spring.
The Behemoth posted on their dev blog a creative poem by one of the game’s many prisoners, Prisoner #10321, in which the last two lines of the last stanza quote, “Mayhaps someone will Spring my friends…Mayhaps they near Release!” With the words ‘Spring’ and ‘Release’ clearly in bold, it was pretty clear that Battleblock Theater will come sometime this spring. To further add confirmation, along with the poem, there is a video that shows off some co-op gameplay that ends with “Spring 2013″. And I think we can be pretty sure it will actually come out this time, with the last words of the trailer being, “For real this time…” You can check out the video below.
We have been waiting anxiously for Behemoth’s next game ever since their last game, Castle Crashers, which is one of the best games to play with some friends. If Battleblock Theater is to be anything like that, it’s time to gather up some friends and get ready for this spring. Battleblock Theater will be released on Xbox Live Arcade.
