By Tina Chubb - May 19, 2011

If you own an Xbox 360 or a PlayStation 3 and you’re familiar with Ronimo Games’ previous WiiWare and PlayStation Network RTS game ‘Swords & Soldiers,’ then you might like to know about the Dutch video game developer’s next downloadable title, Awesomenauts.

As Sal Romano over on the website recently noted, Awesomenauts – which will be heading to both PSN and XBLA at some stage – is a brand new ‘Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA)’ game that is said to be inspired by 1980’s animation.

The Awesomenauts game sees a group of mercenaries battling it out against invading forces, in a war for territorial supremacy. The game combines modern online multiplayer with classic platforming action, and features giant robots, Russian monkeys with jetpacks and a number of other alien creatures.

According to Jasper Koning, the co-founder of Ronimo Games, the company will be revealing more details at this year’s E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) event. You can check out the very first set of screenshots for the upcoming Awesomenauts game via the website.
