Castle Crashers Remastered Coming to Switch Next Month, PS4 Later

Castle Crashers Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch on Sept. 17, and PS4 sometime “shortly” thereafter, developer The Behemoth announced today with a new trailer and blog post.

The whimsical 2D beat em’ up first launched on Xbox 360 in 2008 and then on Xbox One as a remastered version in 2015. It’s arrival on Switch and PS4 platforms later this year will mark the first Behemoth game on Nintendo and Sony hardware for a decade.

It’s explained that technical challenges have delayed their release:

“…while we’re beyond excited to be bringing Castle Crashers to modern consoles, making that leap has come with a number of difficult development challenges.

Some of these challenges took us longer than expected to work through; in fact, the PlayStation 4 version of the game is still going through it’s final approval processes, which is why we are not yet confirming it’s exact launch date.”

Players can expect a number of new features and improvements when the game finally does hit both platforms –though sadly crossplay isn’t one of them.

  • 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

Friends can look forward to co-operative action with up to four players online with PS4 and Switch, while Switch also features to 4-player local Joy-Con both support.

Another game soon releasing on Switch is Dragon Quest XI, which was revealed in more details via some new screenshots yesterday.
