Cobalt, the 2D platform shooter published by Minecraft maker Mojang, will launch via Steam, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on 2nd February.

The release comes after a fourth month delay designed to allow developer Oxeye more time to polish the game - and to move it clear of the busy end of year sales season.

Owners of the Steam alpha version will get a code to grant them a free copy of the full game. Steam will also host new user-created levels for the side-scroller, shared via Steam Workshop.

All versions will launch with an eight hour campaign, survival mode plus local and online multiplayer. See how it all looks below:
