The Behemoth has announced Battleblock Theater has passed Microsoft certification. Speaking with Joystiq at Comic Con, project manager Emil Ayoubkhan broke the good news. The game is about friendship, betrayal, and evil cats – which always seem to go hand-in-hand we’ve found – and was originally slated for release in 2010. According to a statement provided to VG247 from The Behemoth: “BBT does not have a release date or time frame and the correct phase that we have passed is code-complete.” So, hopefully a release date will be announced soon.

During a panel at San Diego Comic Con, as reported by Gamespot, Penny Arcade’s Mike “Gabe” Krahulik told the audience that the company is “aggressively exploring a third PAX” close to Austin, Texas. Austin already hosts a number of gaming events and is something of a development hotseat; a local event would join PAX Prime in Seattle and PAX East in Boston. You can watch the whole panel through the break.

Namco Bandai’s latest foray into digital comics – part of the publishers plan to keep interest in neglected properties alive – revisits everyone’s favourite cat-rabbit-hand-ear thing. Klonoa: Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol was announced at San Diego Comic Con, and is due in August on ShiftyLook. If you’re not already fangirling like a windmill, how about word that The Big O artist Hitoshi Ariga is handling pencils? Oh yeah. Klonoa starred in a couple of late 90′s, early 00′s platformers which were pretty much a joy and delight in every way. Be right back, emailing another HD re-release request.

Namco Bandai announced during Comic Con Tekken Tag Tournament 2 would include over 100 swimsuits as DLC.The firm has yet to make an announcement regarding whether the costumes will be a bonus for early adopters of all versions, including the digital version, but the game’s producer, Katsuhiro Harada, has said for folks to stay tuned for an announcement on that front. Kuma and Ganryu will not have swimsuits for obvious reasons: one is an animal, and the other wears a mawashi which is sort of like a swimsuit given that it doesn’t leave much to the imagination. School swimsuits will also be included. Apparently, this sort of thing is popular. Thanks, Andriasang.
