Not too long ago, Aram brought you some news on a little game called Awesomenauts. Well, the fine folks over at dtp have sent us some more details on their PSN title and I'm here to pass those along.


Do you know what MOBA stands for? Before you rush to Google, I'll just tell you here: Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. Awesomenauts will be a MOBA and allow two teams of three to duke it out. That sounds pretty fun, right? Well it gets even better. You can have up to three people playing on one console and go up against those crazy people out there on the Internet. If your friends need practice have no fear, the game comes with an offline practice mode.

Here is a more detailed list of features that dtp sent over:

- For the first time in galactic history, Awesomenauts will bring the popular MOBA genre to the 2D plane with rich, detailed environments!

- Adrenaline-pumping action with up to 3 players staining your couch, or 6 players online!

- A roster of six unique playable mercenaries, each featuring their own set of skills and upgrades!

- Advanced matchmaking options, which allow you to queue up for online matches without forcing you to wait in a matchmaking lobby!

- Unlock over 100 unique items to beef up your abilities and customize your personal playing style for each match!

- Face melting battles across multiple exotic planets and alien spaceships!

If this sounds like a fun time to you, be sure to check out Awesomenauts when it hits the virtual shelves in "a few weeks time." Oh, and check out this nifty trailer, too:
