Awesomenauts has been an anticipated title of mine since we first heard its Saturday morning cartoon-styled theme song. It was announced recently that Awesomenauts supports up to 3-player split-screen. Don’t believe me? Check the trailer!
It looks as if there are a handful of options for split-screen play including cooperative and competitive. The press release even mentioned online couch support, so you and a couple of friends can take the fight to players across the galaxy. I love when games feature this sort of hybrid multiplayer (think Hoard, Dungeon Defenders, Fat Princess). Offline battles are also supported in order to help newcomers get their bearings.
The game is currently in the final stretch of development and “will be released on Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in a few weeks’ time.” When we hear the date, we’ll let you all know.
