De herwerkte versie van het geliefde Castle Crashers is momenteel al te spelen op de Xbox One en pc, maar liefhebbers van de Nintendo Switch en de PS4 moesten wat langer geduld tonen. Eerder werd al aangegeven dat we niet al té lang meer moesten wachten, maar nu komt ontwikkelaar The Behemoth met erg goed nieuws op de proppen.

De PS4-versie zou oorspronkelijk ergens kort na de Switch-release volgen, die voor vandaag op de planning stond. Aan de PS4-versie werd indertijd immers nog hard gewerkt, waardoor die versie wat langer op zich liet wachten. Klaarblijkelijk ging het proces wel erg vlot, aangezien nu werd aangekondigd dat de PS4-versie gewoon gelijktijdig uitgebracht zal worden met de Switch-versie. Iedereen kan dus, met andere woorden, vanaf vandaag al van de game genieten.

Hieronder kunnen jullie een beknopte FAQ-sectie rond de PS4 en Nintendo Switch-versie van de game nalezen:

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.
