The Broken Controller wrote, "Battleblock Theater is most likely a game you haven't heard about, at least not by that name. It, until today, has been referred to as "Game #3" by its developers; The Behemoth. The Behemoth are those guys responsible for the games Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. This trailer is the first time we see the name of the game as well as being provided the official trailer. Hitting two birds with one stone is great. While the concept seems to be rather original we'll have to wait and see how that goes."
