CastleStorm is a strange game, but Zen Studios doesn’t care. The so-called “super genre mashup” will be releasing on May 29th for Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points and has released a new trailer announcing the same.
Mixing tower defense with brawling and allowing players to alternately handle defense along with taking the fight to their enemy, CastleStorm was seemingly inspired by the gold ol’ days when one would build large LEGO castles and then smash them.
Of course, those never had the benefit of a physics engine, stereoscopic graphics, 12 level campaign, co-op and multiplayer. There will also be a 1 vs. 1 split-screen mode, along with Survival Co-Op and Last Stand Co-Op.
CastleStorm further expands on this by allowing for a dynamic castle editor, that players can use to create their own castles. These can then be used during multiplayer and even shared with other players for recreating the LEGO castle-smashing dream. See it all go down above.
