Castle Crashers Remastered

  • A multiplayer mini-game called “Back Off Barbarian” that’s frantic and weird.
  • Texture sizes of the game are five times the texture size of the original game.
  • Runs at 60 frames per second. The original ran at 30 frames per second.
  • All previously released downloadable content such as characters, weapons, and animal orbs.
  • Various performance updates and improvements to gameplay and online multiplayer.
  • Nintendo Switch has HD Rumble, Switch Online, handheld mode,  and 4 player local Joy-Con support.

If you’re headed to PAX East next week or EGX Rezzed next month, you’ll be able to try the game out on both systems.

Another game from The Behemoth is currently in the works. Codenamed “Game 5”, the studio promises more information will “hopefully” be revealed sometime this year.
