What seems like forever ago (last March to be exact), The Behemoth revealed a frentic trailer for their third Xbox Live Arcade title (Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers being the other two). Today, they have finally got around to revealing the name and plot for said game, as well as a brand new trailer with a bit more focus.

Behold... 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."

I've been waiting a year to find out what this was and was hoping for a Castle Crashers 2 but I guess this will have to do. Hopefully it's longer and a better online. :)

Single player looks like bot match versions of the multiplayer that they've already showed off. I was hoping for a totally different experience as the multiplayer looked uninteresting. I could be wrong but we'll see.

Weird, yet awesome. Not really sure what to expect of this, but I loved Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers so I'll have to give this a go. :)

well, it looks cool (graphic wise) but I don't know. It just doesn't look like much fun...Can't say I'm really excited for it, which is a shame cause I LOVE Castle Crashers...

Like someone else said, kinda mixed feelings.

I agree with #5. Not sure what to make of it. What are the players actually trying to achieve? It doesn't look as pretty as Castle Crashers, although it does look frantic - which is good.

Doesn't look as good as Alien Hominid or Castle Crashers to me. Still, it's Behemoth and I really enjoy their games so I'll definitely keep my eye on this.

judging from the video it's going to be a trial first rather than the instant purchase like the first two behemoth games.

I well I bought Castle Crashers because 1. I liked Alien Hominid on my Game Cube and 2. I liked the other games that Tom Fulp made on Newgrounds. I then got Alien Hominid again for the 360 because I enjoyed it so much. I will definitely be picking this up.

Quite possibly the most epic music ever. It looks mental will definantly give it a trail to see how it plays when it comes out.

Looks like a sort-of remake of the PDA game on Alien Hominid, which, with four people, was both absolutely hilarious and extremely addictive.
Even if it isn't, it still looks really awesome, and I know the Behemoth have a habit of making damn good games, so most likely a day-one for me.

Nice to see that they're going in a different direction with a puzzle-based game. The multiplayer co-op looks almost like Splosion Man and Lode Runner where it requires a lot of coordination and timing. And the competitive part looks almost like New Super Mario Bros!

Looks cool but level design and gameplay looks very uninteresting.

Well... its not hard to miss Behemoth's work... very distinctive.

Certainly looks interesting enough, must look more into this game. Looked Castle Crashers (never played Alien Hominid)
