Castle Crashers Remastered will be released for the Xbox One this Summer

While The Behemoth continues to toil away at Game 4, the developer found the time to announce they’re going back to the past with the release of Castle Crashers Remastered for the Xbox One this Summer.

Castle Crashers Remastered will bring the highly-acclaimed game to the Xbox One for the first time with an improved framerate (60FPS), more detailed textures, improved matchmaking, and a few engine tweaks for better performance. The Remastered version will also come packed with a brand new minigame, Back Off Barbarian:

Back Off Barbarian
Jump. Dart. Move and groove to the music. Whatever you do, just stay away from the enemies!

Back Off Barbarian is a simple but addicting mini-game where players move quickly using the D-Pad to avoid the enemies. As time passes, more enemies are added into the level and the players will find it harder to get around in the environment. Up to four players can be supported online or offline.

Castle Crashers Remastered will also be available for the PC, but according to The Behemoth Blog, development on the Steam update won’t begin until “later this year,” likely sometime after the remake’s Xbox One release. For now, the E3 trailer embedded above will have to satisfy our Castle Crashers hunger.
