dtp Entertainment and Ronimo games today released a new trailer for their upcoming XBLA title, Awesomenauts
, featuring Froggy G. This video is set to be the first in a series of character spotlight trailers for the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena title.
dtp Entertainment also passed along a character bio, and while I'd normally try to summarize it for you, I think it's best you read it in their own words.
The amphibious B.I.G., also known as Nate Frogg or Froggy G, comes straight out of the marsh pond ghetto's of planet Ribit IV. Growing up in the baddest part of town, struggle and incarceration surrounded Froggy from an early age. Taking part in his first swim-by shoot out as a tadpole, Froggy seemed destined for a life of crime and prison. After a bloody gang war with the neighbouring Toad-unit posse ended in a 5 year jail sentence, Froggy G vowed to end his gangsta ways. Instead, Froggy G started earning his keep as a beatboxing street dancer and rapper, hoping to be picked up by a major record label. Unfortunately, his tracks, titled "Pond Pimpin'", "Froggin' dirty" and "Motherfrogger bounce!" didn't earn him much. In order to make some money, and then make some mo', Froggy G became a hired gun. Combining his shoot-out experiences with lethal watery dance-moves and beatboxing techniques, Froggy G now spins and dashes across intergalactic battlefields.
The final roster
will feature six characters, including Froggy G. As other spotlights are revealed, we'll be sure to bring them to you.Awesomenauts
is due to be released sometime in 2011.
