Listen to this Article:

Today at GDC 2019, The Behemoth announced that Castle Crashers Remastered will be coming to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. It was also announced that PlayEveryWare are porting the game. Here are some notes below that they shared about Castle Crashers on the Switch.

“Castle Crashers on the Nintendo Switch has HD Rumble, Switch Online, and 4 player local Joy-Con support. Bring those little knights with you in handheld mode or put them up on the big screen while docked! On your PS4, we’ve utilized the latest in lighting technology to lighten up your lightbars with your character affinity color!”

Here is what the remastered includes in case you forgot:

  • 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
  • CCR runs at 60 frames per second. The original ran at 30 frames per second which feels kind of like a slideshow if you go back to it after trying this new one.
  • All previously released downloadable content like characters, weapons, and animal orbs are available in-game
  • Various performance updates and improvements to gameplay and online multiplayer

The company also answered why they won’t make a sequel right now:

 “We might make one someday, but it would have to hit all the right points at the right times. It has to be a product that would end up vastly improved, rather than “more of the same”, which is only something we can accomplish with gaining experience.”

Next week is PAX East 2019 and Castle Crashers Remastered on both Switch and PS4 will be playable at the event which is no surprise. We knew this announcement was coming today as last week The Behemoth were hinting to the game coming out on both current gen consoles. The game was already available on Xbox 360, One, and Steam.

There was not a specific release date revealed yet.
