Awesomenauts Assemble! on PS4 March 4


The Awesomenauts will spring into action on PlayStation 4 this March 4 and 5 in North America and Europe, respectively. The '80s cartoon-inspired 2D MOBA from Ronimo Games will be known as Awesomenauts Assemble! on Sony's next-gen platform and will be available for $9.99.

"Awesomenauts Assemble! brings 7 all-new characters to the console, a boatload of skins to customize your characters, a new map, improved controls, and a lot more upcoming content," said Fabian Akker, designer and co-founder at Ronimo.

That upcoming content is likely to come in the form of Starstorm, the crowdfunded expansion to the original game that is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

Awesomenauts Assemble! touching down on PlayStation®4 March 4th

They've been honing their skills, charging their lasers, and gearing up for battle - but now the Awesomenauts are ready to get back into the fight! Awesomenauts Assemble! will be available on PlayStation 4 through PlayStation®Network, starting March 4th in North America and March 5th in European territories.

Awesomenauts Assemble! is the next-generation console version of the popular 2D MOBA Awesomenauts by Ronimo Games. With more than a million copies sold around and a strong community, Awesomenauts Assemble! will offer an accessible MOBA-experience for new players and veterans from the previous console-generation alike.

Take on the role of one of fifteen Awesomenauts and square off against online opponents in fast-paced 3 vs. 3 battles. Go at it alone or join the fight with two friends at your side in local splitscreen mode, and never worry about being stuck in a lobby or queue - the drop-in/drop-out matchmaking system ensures you can always jump right into the action!

Fabian Akker, designer and co-founder of Ronimo Games, is excited to bring the Awesomenauts to the next generation of consoles: "Releasing Awesomenauts Assemble! on Playstation 4 feels like we're bringing the Awesomenauts home. We originally created Awesomenauts as a console experience, so what better place to release it than the PlayStation 4? It's the only MOBA you can play together with your buddies on a couch!"

"On top of that, there is a lot of cool new stuff for fans who've played Awesomenauts during the previous generation of consoles: Awesomenauts Assemble! brings 7 all-new characters to the console, a boatload of skins to customize your characters, a new map, improved controls, and a lot more upcoming content! In short, it's bigger, it's better, and it's more awesome!"

Awesomenauts Assemble! will be available on Playstation Network for USD $9.99 / EUR €9,99. The game was developed by Ronimo Games in cooperation with Abstraction Games.
