Over the weekend, many of us got some pretty weak news. German publisher dtp entertainment had filed for insolvency (which is a whole lot like bankruptcy), leading some of us wondering if Awesomenauts would actually stay on schedule or even be released. Monday saw a comment made by Ronimo Games confirming what we all hoped for. The Awesomenauts Facebook page saw a post from Ronimo stating,
“We have just confirmed the game is coming this week! We cannot comment on the exact situation any further right now, but rest assured that you can all play Awesomenauts this week!”
Awesomenauts is a 2D Multiplayer Online Battle Arena style game which has players fighting it out in League of Legends meets Super Smash Bros. style. The game will feature different characters and abilities with additional ones unlocked as a players progresses and wins battles.
The game is still set for a Tuesday release at the user friendly price of $9.99 on PSN or 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live. Playstation Plus subscribers will receive this title for free with their subscription. I was on the fence about getting a Playstation Plus subscription, but Awesomenauts on top of all the other May goodness is just plain irresistible.
Any other gamers out there looking forward to this impressive looking fighter? Feel free to leave a comment below.
