Castle Crashers Remastered headed to the Nintendo Switch this Summer

Earlier this week, The Behemoth announced that Castle Crashers is coming to the Nintendo Switch, with Castle Crashers Remastered. This version of the game will be released this Summer in Europe and North America, and will feature HD Rumble, as well as 4 player local Joy-Con support. Of course, you will also be able to play online.

Here’s a trailer and some details for the game:

Hack and slash your way to victory in this Remastered edition of the popular 2D arcade adventure from The Behemoth! Up to four friends can play locally or online and save your princess, defend your kingdom, and crash some castles!

Wondering what’s new in this Remaster? Here’s the list of new features and improvements:

– 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
