BattleBlock Theater opening this spring

"Behemoth's BattleBlock Theater Delayed; Will Not Release in 2010", we wrote 25 months ago. Quite! Having massively expanded its puzzle/battle platformer, the creator of Castle Crashers finally confident enough to toss out a firm Xbox Live Arcade release window: spring 2013. "For real this time," it adds.

The reveal comes from a delightful new trailer, which I'll leave you to watch for yourself to discover the cute surprise. It also demonstrates one of BattleBlock Theater's many modes, competitive/cooperative puzzle-platforming. It boasts heaps more modes though, which will have you doing everything from playing soccer to killing people then stealing their souls.
