The first of the Final Five: Barbarian

It hath begun. The first of five reveals in BattleBlock Theater for those who have completed the Furbottoms Features. A new cooperative community playlist has just been featured and the reward, for ye kind sirs and ladies, is our favorite brute from Castle Crashers!




FeaturePost_BARBARIANHomeless after one too many bad knights, the Barbarian has learned how to express his need for princesses and castle crashing with less murder and more interpretive dance. But still sometimes murder.


Will he find a home in your household of prisoners? Get the first of the Final Five soon before it’s gone! Learn more about the new Furbottoms Features playlist that you need to defeat in order to get our Barbarian.


Furbottoms Friday: Arena + 2 New Unlocks!

Welcome to another exciting Friday in BattleBlock Theater. Today, we’ve got a new Arena Feature up for you to play with your frienemies. For another wonderfully written description of the new playlist in the same witty manner of all Aaron’s posts, click HERE to learn more and be delighted by his riddle.
As for the prisoner unlocks of this week, we’ve taken down Hooshmand. However, don’t mourn too long otherwise you’d miss your opportunity to get two new friends in your entourage of prisoners!
Meet Meebs. I’m not too sure what this creation is supposed to resemble, but I personally can only think to describe it as キモかわいい (kimo-kawaii). It’s sort of a slangish word, actually two words just mushed together to make one adjective, which means it’s cute in a creepy way. Or directly translated “gross-cute.” (Cecil is kinda kimo-kawaii too, don’t ya think?)

As an added bonus, you’ll also be getting Swamp Bro! Not to be mistaken for these guys:

No, our Swamp Bro is a little different. He’s also got a tall, dark and handsome look about him, but he’s pretty intimidating even without the lizards and alligators.


Just be sure to sign in to Xbox LIVE and load up the full version of BattleBlock Theater. You’ll need to head over to an online feature, such as Furbottoms Features, to trigger the unlock. Happy playing!
