It’s the update that everyone (well, everyone with a PS4) has been waiting for! Today, we’re happy to announce that Castle Crashers Remastered will be launching digitally for the PlayStation 4 on September 17, 2019 in North America and September 19, 2019 in Europe! That’s right – the same day as the Nintendo Switch launch.
Thank you for being patient with us while we worked out the last few kinks and got the game in tip-top shape, especially with the extra wait for news that PlayStation 4 players have had to endure while all the Nintendo Switch players rubbed Castle Crashers in your faces. How rude (even though they were probably just excited).
But soon enough everyone will be able enjoy Castle Crashers Remastered on this generation’s consoles, whether they are a PS4, Switch, or even an Xbox One gamer! (Xbox players have been crashing castles and laughing at the rest of us for years now, though. Let’s be honest.)
As always, thank you all for your support and patience as worked to bring this special game to a whole new world of consoles and players. We couldn’t do anything that we do without you.
And now that this crazy new-age Castle Crashers project is finished, we get to head full force into our new projects, which means we’re dedicated to bringing you even more video games to fall in love with. We’ll share more about that when we’re ready, but for now just kick back and enjoy some good ol’ Castle Crashers.
Where will I be able to buy Castle Crashers Remastered, and how much will it be?
When Castle Crashers Remastered launches for the PlayStation 4 on September 17, 2019, it will be available for purchase digitally in the PlayStation Store for $14.99 USD. If you’re looking for the Switch version of the game, you can pick it up in the Nintendo eShop for $14.99 USD on the same day.
What’s “Remastered” about the game?
Castle Crashers Remastered includes all of the following differences from the original game:
- The fast-paced and frantic mini-game “Back Off Barbarian” that you can play by yourself or with your friends
- Texture sizes are five times greater than the original game, which means the game is five times more beautiful
- 60 frames per second gameplay! (The original ran at 30FPS which is not nearly as smooth)
- All previously released downloadable content including characters, weapons, and animal orbs will be available to unlock in-game
- Various performance updates and improvements to gameplay and online multiplayer
What special PlayStation 4 features are there?
PlayStation 4 players will see their controller’s lightbars set ablaze with their character affinity colors for a bright and glowing experience! And of course, you’ll also be able to play online or offline with friends for up to 4-player chaos!
Is the game going to be cross-platform?
It’s not something we have in our plans. For now, you’ll have to stick to grouping up with friends on the same console, but between couch co-op and online play you should still have plenty of ways to connect!
Are there going to be physical copies of the game?
We don’t have plans to bring the game to store shelves. At launch and for the foreseeable future, Castle Crashers Remastered will only be available digitally for the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch. If we ever did make physical copies it would most likely be as part of some sort of limited edition event or celebration; regardless, we don’t have it in our current plans.
See you on Tuesday!
