Richter & Alucard Go Roguelike in Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania

Dead Cells meets Dracula.

Today, during the Game Awards, a brand new DLC was announced for Dead Cells, and boy was it a surprising one. Geoff Keighly and company opened up the show with a bang, as it was revealed that the next installment would be called Dead Cells Return to Castlevania.

As you can see in the trailer below, you’ll be able to team up with Richter Belmont and Alucard, as well as get the chance to wield iconic Castlevania weapons against hordes of monsters to reach the throne room of the Dark Lord himself, Dracula.

When Does Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania Come Out?

While a specific release date wasn’t revealed, we know that the Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania DLC is coming Q1 2023 for PC and consoles. You can check out a brief synopsis of what else to expect below:

WIELD CLASSIC CASTLEVANIA WEAPONS
