Awesomenauts Screenshot The side scrolling multiplayer online battle arena game, Awesomenauts, has finally launched today on the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade. It features 80’s style visuals and platforming gameplay with a hefty upgrade system. In the game, you pick one of six characters available to form a team of three to take into the online battlegrounds. Among them are a cowboy, a floating brain, a spacefrog, and a few other zany characters. It also features 3 player splitscreen and online multiplayer action so you won’t be playing alone.

“We are proud to be able to release Awesomenauts today on PSN and XBLA,” said Frank Brügmann, CEO dtp entertainment AG. “Our expertise of successfully launching games for these platforms has been built up with the release of our previous critically acclaimed games TNT Racers as well as Crazy Machines Elements. The release of Awesomenauts also shows that we already are in the process to overcome the obstacles and continue on our path to provide some of the best games out there to the players.”

“We’ve been looking forward to this day for 3 years,” said Jasper Koning, Game Designer at Ronimo Games, “The day that we can finally head online and play our game against other players instead of bots! I’ll see you on the battlefield!”

Awesomenauts is available now on XBLA for 800 Microsoft Points and on the PSN for $9.99. For more info on the game, follow Ronimo Games on Twitter or visit the game’s official Facebook page.
