Castle Crashers Title Update 2 !

Just in time for PAX Prime, and among the many surprises that we’ve brought with us… Title Update 2 is now live for Castle Crashers XBLA. New characters, changes, additions, and everything else title update related is described below.

 

Castle Crashers XBLA Title Update 2 Changes

  • Download the Pink Knight (complete with new weapons!) in the Xbox LIVE Marketplace,  FOR FREE!!!!!!! ($1.00 donated to Keep A Breast Foundation with each of the first 50,000 downloads)
  • Download the Blacksmith Pack for 160 Microsoft Points. Once shrouded in mystery, the legend of the Blacksmith becomes a reality. Wielding miniature antlered frogs, burning hammers of justice and springboard contraptions, this warrior is much like William Wallace (ala Braveheart), but purple and definitely not Mel Gibson.
  • Added a Team vs Team feature to Player Match Arena (as opposed to the current free-for-all).
  • Earn two new Avatar Awards—Cardinal Animal Orb and Knight  Helmet!
  • Ability to check Player’s Gamer Cards in Xbox LIVE matches.
  • Main menu News Ticker for all of your latest Castle Crashers and Behemoth Updates!

Notable Bug Fixes:

  • Level 256 cheat resolved (more info available on request).
  • Data copy glitch (more info available on request).
  • Sandworm experience glitch (more info available on request).
  • Wedding Crashers progression save now fixed when user leaves game play in flowery fields.
  • Smoothed Alien Hominid’s Splash Magic when traveling over water.
  • Slowed down Iceskimo’s power drainage from magic.
  • More effects added to elemental attacks for Alien Hominid, Demon and Iceskimo!
  • If your character dies, your Animal Orbs can no longer fight without you.
  • Fixed floating characters in Beefy Arena when grabbed.
  • Sandwiches can now be picked up after Volcano Boss fight.

The Pink Knight was born out of the Xbox LIVE Arcade community. The Pink Knight was a myth when Castle Crashers released and the fans believed in it so much that myth became reality – a completely FREE reality available now for your own personal realities.

With each of the first 50,000 downloads of the Pink Knight we are donating $1.00 to the Keep A Breast Foundation to raise breast cancer detection and prevention awareness.

        XBLA received a Title Update 2 to resolve a couple bug fixes Castle Crashers had, and to give them the Pink Knight. No word on releasing the Blacksmith for PSN — it wasn’t supposed to be out yet for XBLA (we didn’t make an announcement prior to it’s release).

    “Level 256 cheat resolved (more info available on request).”

    I love you guys forever. Also, it is very nice to see that you’re still updating this game after all this time.

    Love the game and its new additions even the it erased all my characters stats…but I saw a weird animal ord that made gold on youtube today and wanted to know if that is a new pet

    • Seth Lios - 0

      I did see someone running around with a golden whale animal orb that “made” golden bricks you could collect (which were worth 1 gold, I believe). It looked like that person did the 256 glitch before the update, though. I’ve heard rumors that it’s an animal orb that hasn’t been actually released yet, but I haven’t seen anything concrete about it yet.

      It will be available to everyone as a DLC for buying BattleBlock Theater when it comes out. Hatty Hattington will be a playable character, we added magical attacks and a new weapon in addition to the golden whale orb.

      The reason why you see people have the golden whale orb is because they have performed game modification. We hadn’t announced the DLC pack yet…which just ruined our surprise for our fans :(

    I’m really glad the 256 glitch was fixed, but I don’t like that the sandstorm experience glitch was patched. I didn’t find the sandstorm experience glitch to be an issue to anyone else. Unlike the 256 glitch where players would spam moves and ruin the fun. The sandstorm level grind takes time and patience especially if done on insane mode. It’s not an easy task to reach the sand level on insane mode, so I felt the grinding glitch was a well deserved reward for making it that far. It’s still a challenging experience to play through an entire game on insane mode even when a character is maxed out at lvl 99.

    BUT, I love all the changes made to the game regardless, and if I have to part ways with sandstorm grinding to get rid of the 256 deal….I’m okay with it. Thanks for giving XBLA the pink knight for free, and the fix on the iceskimo.

      Love the avatar awards. But if I can make a suggestion or comment…why didn’t you allow us the option to choose the color of the knight helmet. So far Dust from Ubisoft is the only avatar award that I know of that lets you customize by choosing color. This would have been awesome if it had the option to choose from the 4 main Knights, or even the other colors as well.

      Nice to hear that you didn’t mind the glitch, but the 256 deal was a big problem. We wanted to fix things we knew of before putting the Title Update 2 out!

    YEEEEEIS <3

    only complaint I have is that both the pink/purple knight have no magic animation when you do the xxxy magic combo =[

    butttttt they're still great and I love all the little things they've added in.

    What happens/happened to the people who used the 256 glitch/hack? Did they get banned or did they just get reset to 1-99?

    • deadpool - 0

      I didn’t do the glitch and got resested back to level one someone that I did do the glitch had level 99 characters..

    • Christine - 0

      They get reset to level 99, and we’re working with Microsoft on a way to resolve this issue. It’s serious, and it ruins the fun for us and our fans…but keep in mind, it’s a tricky dealing.

    Would it be possible to further mod those who had the 256 glitch from before? They still have 256x potions, bombs, etc. in their inventory.

    • clonexg - 2

      um, hello, clonexg here, just wanted to ask why we didnt get the purple knight. I mean, i know we had the pink knight for like, 2 months before they even got it, but are we going to have to go through the same thing?

      The main reason I ask is because my sister and I are very exited about the ledged of the the purple knight pack, AND the Cant Stop Crying pack (btw, so guy hacked his X-Box, so he has the guy already, it looks great) Both of these guys look neat, and my sister made a deal with me, she got hatty, but i get the golden whale (the foating one, he poops out gold!)

      Drakinho –

      1. We have not announced anything for the Blacksmith DLC for PSN.
      2. We are actively working with SCEE (Sony Computer Entertainment Europe) to get out the Pink Knight for PSN as fast as we can. PlayStation has a different store for each region, and each region requires its own submission for each game that goes through. They’re packaged differently, and right now it is in the process for the PS EU version.

      clonexg – The Purple Knight was not supposed to be released for XBLA yet. If/when it comes out for PSN, you will hear about it on the front page of our blog!

      + Dilbert15 –

      It’s unfortunate that when people perform game modification, they retrieve a DLC that we have not announced yet…which ruined our surprise for our fans.

      The “Can’t Stop Crying Pack” will be available to everyone as a DLC for buying BattleBlock Theater when it comes out. Hatty Hattington will be a playable character, we added magical attacks, a new weapon and golden whale orb.

      We’re doing what we can to fix things, as well as working with Microsoft to resolve the problem.

    So will the PS3 version be getting any kind of updates or add-ons? I used to own a 360, but I don’t anymore (need to fix that), but I just had to keep my Castle Crashers. So, anything for those of us on Sony’s black box?

    Also, Alien Hominid HD needs ported to PS3, with the PDA Game level editor. I’d buy it again for that alone. ^_^

    I’ve been having a minor problem ever since this title update. Occasionally, when I start up the game, it gives me this message:

    “The storage device has been removed or files have become damaged. Please reconnect the storage device or re-download the content.”

    Afterwards, I’ll temporarily lose certain DLC characters/equipment, but restarting the game or re-downloading the DLC packs fixes it, with nothing lost. Apparently, I’m not the only one with this problem, either. Any insight on this?

    Are you guys going to continue supporting Castle Crashers through the future? If so, what are the chances of the volleyball game coming to the XBLA version?

  11. Calophi - 0

    I’m not sure whether you can help, but I bought the game and downloaded the pink knight immediately since it was free, and then after playing a bit I got all the character packs. But the purple knight isn’t coming up in my list of characters even though the king and necromancer both show up. Do I have to do something to get purple knight to show up also? Do you think my download was corrupted?

    Will you guys please come out with a Troll DLC for XBLA? the troll is one of my favorites and i would really appreciate it if you made him a playable character.

  13. Hyperion505 - 0

    Its good to see that Castle Crashers is still getting needed fixings. I sadly was one of the 256lvl glitched but now thats fixed and now i just have lvl 99s out the wazoo. only qualm is that i have that golden whale orb and when i enter the animal arc the game promptly crashes :< anyway around this? pretty much all my characters have the whale

    I didn’t see the Golden sword fix listed.
    For those unaware, you used to be able to use the lvl 30 yellow sword at lvl 1. It came with the king DLC pack.
