The Behemoth is well-known for a few things: adorable art laced with gore, dark and sarcastic humor, and incredibly fun indie games. Today the studio announced that Castle Crashers Remastered, an updated version of their hit hack and slash adventure game will be released on the Xbox One on September 9th.
Here’s what Castle Crashers Remastered has to offer:
– 5x increase in texture sizes!
– Uncapped framerate — 60fps
– Various performance updates and improvements to gameplay and online multiplayer
– New mini game: Back Off Barbarian
Back Off Barbarian is like an odd mix of Dance Dance Revolution and Snake as you move to the beat of the music using the D-pad while avoiding the ever-growing horde of barbarians looking to maul you to death. It’s fast-paced, fun, and incredibly challenging, just like you would expect from The Behemoth Games.

As for price, The Behemoth says:
Castle Crashers Remastered on Xbox One will be $14.99 which is our usual cost of admission for this classic game baby. However…if you’ve previously owned Castle Crashers on Xbox 360, you shall receive our Thank-You-For-Saving-Our-Lives-That-One-Time special price of FREE THROUGH SEPTEMBER 20th with current Xbox Live Gold membership. Be sure to scoop it up early if you want to take advantage of that awesomeness. $0.00 for our game feels like a pretty good deal to me!!!!! (I’m not much of a businessman though!!!!)
The good news is starting September 21, 2015 we’ll still have a loyalty discount for Xbox One owners, which will bring CCR’s cost down to only $5.00 if you’ve owned it before. This special $5 price is available for any Xbox Live Gold members who are previous owners of Castle Crashers on Xbox 360.
