Anyone salivating at the prospect of yet more animated mania in the same vein as Alien Hominid, The Maw and Castle Crashers will have to sit tight unfortunately as developer Behemoth's next XBLA title, BattleBlock Theater has been delayed.
The insane-looking platformer was supposed to launch sometime in 2010, but that will no longer be the case, as the developer's 'Mayor of Behemothtown', Kelly Revak confessed on the Behemoth devblog: "I have a confession to make. Long story short, BattleBlock Theater is becoming so much more than we ever expected. It feels like no other game out there – there’s a little more R&D than we thought and lots of new ground to break. This means we will not be releasing in 2010..." he laments.
Well, we think we know what Revak means when he says that BattleBlock Theater is unlike any other game. Just take a look at the completely nutty trailer. It looks like a conventional 2D platformer, right? Erm... wrong. Check out the video again in case you missed it waaaaay back in February.
