by Jake ValentineApril 24, 2012

Awesome news, gamers! Sony has announced that the upcoming PSN title Awesomenauts from Romino Games, which we absolutely loved back at PAX East, will be the PS Plus Game of the Month for May. This means that all PS Plus subscribers will be able to pick up the title free of charge!

Romino Games was nice enough to describe just what Awesomenauts is in an email sent out to help celebrate the news:

– 3 on 3 online platforming shooter action with bright 80’s cartoon style
– 6 very unique and highly customisable characters, each with their own attacks and skills
– Online and offline play with up to 3 players on a single console using splitscreen
– Full drop in drop out support with bots and humans being swapped where needed
– Strong MOBA influences, classes, upgrades, creeps, turrets, bases, tactical depth, etc.
– Available on PSN ($9,99) on May 1st in North America, and worldwide May 2nd.
– Available on XBLA (800MSP) on May 2nd

They did, however, forget the mention that the game is an absolute blast to play.

While we await the upcoming release date, be sure to check out our impressions back from PAX East.

    Hey, I was taking into consideration attending Pax East this year in Boston, but I had a problem I was questioning about. So I’m mindful that there will be demo’s and such for upcoming games, but I would like to know.

    Since I am under the age of 18, would I be authorized to perform demos for games which are rooting for a M ranking the moment they are released? (eg. Bioshock : Infinite, Borderlands 2)

    As in, Do they treatment at all if you are a slight enjoying a most probable M rated game?

    Thanks in Advance

    I would like to persuade my mother and father to consider me to Pax East (I dwell in Massachusetts). I am fourteen and was questioning if there was an age restriction to go.

  • Cliffy N

    Guild wars two hasn’t had a release date yet but with the recent PAX East have they revealed anything about it at all?

  • Joey 01

    My brothers e-mail account was disabled recently and now he cannot access his PSN account. Is there any way he can swap out his current disabled email for a different without being able to log in to the PSN account?

    I think Supergiant was giving away Bandanas at Pax East. Is there still anyway to get a hold of one currently, or is anyone selling any?

    Thanks
