Dan Paladin, co-founder & art director of The Behemoth, explains: “Over a year ago we started thinking about the future. Castle Crashers would disappear along with lots of other games once the ‘Last Gen’ would wave goodbye. Millions of people have enjoyed the game and written to us with such amazing experiences, it seemed like it’d be a loss to just let it vanish for any new or returning console players.”
Castle Crashers Remastered will be available for $14.99. Xbox One owners who previously purchased Castle Crashers on Xbox 360 will get the game for free through September 20, 2015 with an active Xbox Live Gold membership. Starting September 21, 2015, Xbox Live Gold members who are previous owners of Castle Crashers on Xbox 360 will receive Castle Crashers Remastered for Xbox One for only $5.00!
In addition to Castle Crashers Remastered, the original XBLA version of Castle Crashers will be playable with Xbox One Backwards Compatibility but there is no release date yet.
