Battleblock Theater opening cinematic is simply wonderful

Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers developer The Behemoth have consistently found a way to capture the attention of gamers, with their colorful games and lovable characters. The opening to Battleblock Theater, their third console-bound title, is no different.

Bringing the story of  Hatty Hattington and his unnamed round-headed best friend, the game’s two main characters, the trailer shows a bit of actual gameplay near the end, but that’s not the draw here. The simplicity of the puppet show depicting the two friends’ journey across the sea, with sharks and battering seas and spitting in Poseidon’s mouth, is what should pique interest in Battleblock Theater.

It works.
