Castle Crashers Remastered coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4

The Behemoth’s Castle Crashers is coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 this summer as Castle Crashers Remastered, the developer announced today.

The Behemoth first released Castle Crashers Remastered on Xbox One in 2015. The remastered version of the beloved beat-’em-up features five times the texture resolution as the original and 60 fps gameplay. All existing DLC and a new mini-game called “Back Off Barbarian” is also included in the remastered version of the game.

In his blog post, The Behemoth developer Dan Paladin revealed that the PlayEveryWare port studio helped create the two new versions of Castle Crashers. The Switch version utilizes HD Rumble, Switch Online, and supports four-player local Joy-Con use. The PS4 version will display the player’s character color in the DualShock 4’s lightbar.

Paladin also addressed why The Behemoth hasn’t made a sequel to Castle Crashers or any of its other games. A sequel to Castle Crashers would need to be “vastly improved” over the original, rather than “more of the same,” according to Paladin

“Another thing to consider is that there would be no Castle Crashers 2 if we started out by making sequels,” said Paladin. “You’d have Alien Hominid 2 instead of Castle Crashers 1. Or, alternatively, there’d be no BattleBlock Theater if we made Castle Crashers 2.”

Paladin also teased that the studio is working on a new title, codenamed “Game 5.” The Behemoth released its most recent game game, Pit People, into early access over two years ago. Paladin said The Behemoth hopes to reveal more information about “Game 5” later in 2019.
