Rumor: Awesomenauts DLC character info discovered
Remember that new DLC character Ronimo Games just announced for Awesomenauts earlier today? GameFAQs member MirorB claims he’s discovered just about every element of the two DLC characters he claims are named Coco Nebulon (the girl recently announced) and Derpl Zork. He claims to have explored the .DDS files and found an unrefined picture of the characters’ sprites (below). Since then he’s posted the description, (some) base stats, move sets and an entire upgrade list of both characters. Since the first post wherein he posted a screen capture of the files he was viewing, no further evidence has been provided. However, having reviewed all of the upgrades, we believe the format is in-line with Ronimo’s build development methods.
Months ago a minor leak was captured by members on the Awesomenauts forums noting two characters, a slug and a girl with goggle, when Ronimo Games posted a screen grab to their Facebook with the DLC characters on it. We now know the girl with goggles is real, so the slug probably is as well.
Here’s the description of both characters:
Hailing from a psyonic race on Okeanos, Coco is known as the cosmic waveblazer. Describes herself as hot & cool at the same time.
Excerpt from her spacelog: “It’s just like, dude, I was cruisin’ the galaxy, you know, in this totally tubular space-van, searching for the best cosmic waves man.”
125 Base Health, 4.2 Movement
Blaze: Temporarily, Coco’s hoverboard leaves a trail of electricity.
Ball Lightning: Shoot a ball lightning. Detonate it any time with a second press.
Attack: Channel Coco’s psycho-electric powers through her unfortunate enemies. (this is apparently a melee attack)
Jump: Hoverboard jump, with a chance to do a front-flip. Tubular!
Riding his combat walker onto the battlefield, comes Derpl Zork. The nephew of Blabl Zork, president of Zork industries, Derpl lacks his uncle’s business-smarts. In fact he lacks any kind of smarts: his IQ is even rated under the level of plankton in the official galaxial IQ test. He loves hunting cats, though.
Officially classed as:
Medium speed, medium ranged, tank.
(Clunk’s speed is classed as “slow”, take that as you will.)
180 Base Health, 3.1 Movement
Trap: Deploy traps that will ensnare enemies, locking them in place. Nuke in siege mode.
Turret Mode: Transform into a static siege mode, enabling deadly weaponry.
Attack: Mew enemies into oblivion by shooting explosive holocats. Gatling fire in siege mode.
Jump: Derpl’s walking desk has a temporary jet boost. Hold X (PS3) / A (360) to ascend!
The post includes all of the upgrades for both characters, but that’s a huge list so we’ll list both characters in the source links, and you can check them out there.
We have reached out to Ronimo Games regarding this information for confirmation.
