Ronimo Games, the studio behind the popular Swords and Soldiers 2D RTS, have announced a new title for Xbox Live Arcade and PSN. It's set to be an online multiplayer-centric brawler with a wild and wacky art style as well as mohawk-wearing space frogs - and we have the full details below.
According to the press release, Awesomenauts will be a 2D brawler in the vein of Super Smash Bros; delivering a varied range of characters and attacks to choose from as players duke it out in hazardous arenas. Ronimo promise that it will "classic platforming-action with modern online multiplayer functionality" - and appeal to both 16-Bit retronauts and the modern market with its blend of classic gameplay and new innovations. Oh, and it will also contain "space frogs with mohawks, giant robots and lots of other mighty aliens," which sounds good to us.
We are thrilled to surprise the world with Awesomenauts at E3, and look forward to announcing further details then. If MOBA games and classic animated series were to have a baby, this would be it! They don’t make ‘em like this anymore! - Jasper Koning, Ronimo Gamesco-founder
Awesomenauts will make its debut at E3, and I'll do my best to swing by and check it out. You can keep up to date over at the official site.
