What you might not know (because they just announced it) is that Awesomenauts also offers split-screen action, and that's even more awesome.
But what is most awesome? How 'bout a trailer showing off all the hot split-screen action you and your buddies will be able to partake in when you play Romnio'sAwesomenauts? That sounds most awesome to me.
Awesomenauts is in the final stages of development and will be out later this year.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Splitscreen Feature for Awesomenauts Triples the Fun!
Hamburg, Germany – March 2, 2012 – Did you know that MOBA stands for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena? It's true! Did you also know the upcoming XBLA and PSN game Awesomenauts actually is a MOBA? It is! In Awesomenauts, two teams of 3 players battle it out for honor, glory and of course experience points!
But sometimes those roommates on your couch might get bored of watching you dominate matches using your Awesome(nauts) skills. Well, why not invite them to join you using the splitscreen feature? You can play with up to three people on a single console. So you can form your own team and take on the galaxy! And if your friends need some training first, you can try the offline practice mode where the bots will provide the challenge. So off- or online, you can take your friends along for the ride.
Awesomenauts is currently in the final stages of development, and will be released on the PlayStation Network (PSN) and Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) in a few weeks’ time. A definitive release date and price will be announced as soon as possible.
The year is 3587, conflict spans the stars. Huge robot armies are locked in an enduring stalemate. At the centre is a team of elite mercenaries fighting for the spoils of war: The Awesomenauts.
Combining the gameplay of classic 2D-platforming titles with that of modern, fast-paced MOBA-games, Awesomenauts allows up to six players to battle against one-another across multiple alien worlds. Featuring a playable roster of six unique heroes, Awesomenauts brings ferocious team play and angry, lightsaber-wielding aliens together.
Awesomenauts will soon be available for download on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
