The Behemoth, the developers of the co-op multiplayer hit Castle Crashers, have been hard at work making their next game Battleblock Theater as fun and exciting as possible. With the game having been shown back in 2009, gamers had waited a long time to hear any solid release date and thankfully, we got a release window of Spring 2013 announced by Behemoth a couple of weeks ago. Surprisingly though, Behemoth has announced through their development blog that Battleblock Theater will be released on April 3rd on Xbox LIVE Arcade. It will be 1200 Microsoft Points which is approximately $15 USD.
That’s in 2 weeks, people! The studio made the announcement alongside a new trailer, and in classic Behemoth fashion, it’s pretty hilarious. I’d hate to spoil the trailer in any way, so check it out below.
Just like how Castle Crashers was one of the best games to play with friends, it looks like Battleblock Theater will be just as great, if not better with its different game modes to play against or with your friends. If you’re attending PAX East next week, The Behemoth will be there with Battleblock Theater so make sure to stop by Booth 512 for various Battleblock Theater activities and more.
