BattleBlock Theater is all about being cool

BattleBlock Theater, by The Behemoth, has humor, murder, cuteness and now ice. A new video has just been released with some gameplay footage that introduces prisoner #10330 and the ice levels. While I would have liked some more voiced story trailers, this one shows off the game, so I suppose I'm okay with it. The real question here is, can that guy narrate my life?

A hi-res, hand-drawn, downloadable game in which cute characters are imprisoned by maniacal cats who force them to act in lethal plays for their amusement. Sounds like a game from The Behemoth to me!

I played Battleblock Theater at PAX this weekend and was so impressed I made sure it got a Destructoid Game of the Show nomination. It was just that much silly, outrageous, beautifully violent fun!

The Behemoth reveals ... BattleBlock Theater

The Behemoth has finally revealed the name and premise for its long-awaited Xbox Live Arcade game. The follow-up to Castle Crashers has now officially been named, and we all now know to look forward to BattleBlock Theater!

Having shipwrecked on a mysterious island you find yourself both betrayed by your best friend Hatty and captured by the locals. All of this is happening while being forced into deadly performances. This however, is just the start of your problems.

BattleBlock Theater is our upcoming third title for the Xbox Live Arcade. Website to follow in the next few days and as we inch closer to the release of the title we’ll be unfolding more of the story online.

Check out the official debut trailer and let us know what you think. This is looking to be a pretty hot one, with typical Behemoth humor and some rather awesome looking gameplay. Very much looking forward to it -- here's hoping there won't be any online issues that Microsoft takes ten years to patch this time!
