So I've been keeping an eye on Awesomenauts for some time now and I'm very much looking forward to it, I was also looking forward to its December release date. But instead I have to look forward to its February release date as they've pushed it back a little.
“Though we understand that fans may initially feel disappointed that the game will not be released before the end of the year, we will make sure to use the extra time available to us to polish Awesomenauts even further,”
Awesomenauts is a 2D side scrolling MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena), if you haven't played a MOBA before, they're based around the premise of DotA, and League of Legends. Awesomenauts is set to be one of the first true MOBA’s for consoles and I've managed to play it twice, once at E3 and again at Eurogamer and I really enjoyed what I played.
Their reasons for delaying it seem fair, as long as it doesn't slip again I'll be happy, plus it means there's more time to get more of a fan base for it so there'll be more people playing when it's out.
