BattleBlock Theater hits XBLA on April 3

The Behemoth's long-awaited BattleBlock Theater has an official release date. The Castle Crashers developer today announced the co-operative, customizable platformer will arrive on Xbox Live Arcade on April 3, 2013.

Five Call of Duty games have come and gone since The Behemoth launched its last title, but we've got a feeling the wait will be worth it. Watch our friends at OXM play for an hour complete with developer commentary to see for yourself.

BattleBlock Theater will launch exclusively on XBLA for 1200 Microsoft Points, or $15. Chances are the game will make its way to PC eventually, as Castle Crashers did earlier this year, though The Behemoth has not announced any port plans.
