Halfbrick Studios, developer of the mobile hits Jetpack Joyride and Fruit Ninja, announced that its next release Colossatron: Massive World Threat will launch this year for iOS platforms.

Announced earlier this year, Colossatron puts players in control of a huge robot snake (from space, of course) that grows in size and destructive capacity as players attach like-colored body segments. At the same time, players must also fend off attacks from surrounding enemy vehicles, making it necessary to chain together color combinations to form new and unique weapons.

Colossatron will hit the App Store by the end of 2013.

COLOSSATRON IS BACK! ACTION NEWS 6 REPORTING LIVE ACROSS THE WORLD

November 6th, Brisbane, Australia – The team at Halfbrick is proud to present the latest details in the ongoing story of Colossatron: Massive World Threat, the studio's newest mobile game crash landing across the world in 2013.
Today marks the first instalment in a series of reports from the team at Action News 6, covering the story from inside the studio and on the ground as Colossatron wreaks havoc across the globe. Here's the scoop on the dedicated professionals bringing you the action.

Rick Dalton – Almost too dashing for his own good, Rick is the lead anchor of Action News 6 and lifetime activist for robot rights. He seems to be somewhat pleased about Colossatron's progress – maybe he just loves the attention it brings?

Katie Hazard – Field reporter for Action News 6, Katie is right in the midst of the destruction as she follows Colossatron reporting on the latest cities to fall, and the continued efforts of the military to stop the beast.

General Moustache – The planet's last hope against Colossatron. Ballistics tests have shown that the only thing powerful enough to destroy his facial hair is an explosive diamond-plated round, so if anyone is a bad enough dude to stop the beast, it's General Moustache. His hobbies include bare-knuckle boxing, constructing armor-plated canoes, and knitting.

In today's footage streaming live from Metronia, the first continent under assault, Katie Hazard drops in on General Moustache for an interview. Having just captured one of Colossatron's Power Cores, a crack team of military scientists is hypothesizing their way to victory! Tune in to Action News 6 now to find out more!
