While The Behemoth has previously announced the official release date for the Switch release of Castle Crashers Remastered, there was still some details left out of the mix regarding the PS4 launch. Now, it seems that the developer has finally nailed down a release date and it seems to be the same date as the Switch release.
It was announced that PS4 and Switch owners will be able to get their hands on the beloved beat ’em up classic from last gen in remastered form, which is currently available only on the Xbox One and PC.
You can check out a full detailed overview of what PS4 and Switch owners can expect in the upcoming remastered release below:
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 does the “Remastered” part mean?
Remastered means the game includes all of the differences from the original:
- 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 30 frames per second 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 four-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.
Castle Crashers Remastered is set to release as early as next week on September 17, 2019.
