In a post on PlayStation Blog, developer DreamSail Games has announced the release date for their competitive multiplayer title, Blade Ballet. Set to release August 9, the game is designed to be a Battle Bots inspired action game where players face off against one another with a little remote controlled robot. As the opportunities afforded by the arenas to be conniving and force opponents to make errors are myriad, there are sure to be many a bruised shoulder when playing local matches.
While the emphasis on the title is to gather friends in a living room, the developer has also announced that they would be adding online functionality by popular request. The post makes it clear that it wasn’t a simple task for the developer to put in, but it will be available from day one. For a taste of what the game is about, check out the trailer below.
