The Behemoth are back with Castle Crashers…just this time it’s been fully remastered and is appearing on Xbox One!
Available now from the Xbox One Games Store, Castle Crashers Remastered brings the smash hit Xbox 360 Arcade title smashing its way onto the new generation of consoles with a remastered version that brings the original game fully up-to-date.
You can pick it up now for £11.99, or try a free version if you are that way inclined.
Whilst we brought you the news that all previous owners of the game on Xbox 360 were to get the game for nothing on Xbox One, that doesn’t currently seem to be the case. There seem to be a few issues with the game on the store atm, so here’s hoping things get sorted asap but the following tweet from The Behemoth seems to indicate that they are onto it.
Edit: The issues have now been fixed. All previous owners of Castle Crashers on Xbox 360 have until the 20th Sept to download the game for free. After that, it’ll be a fiver!
Hi all! Castle Crashers Remastered is currently releasing in various countries. We're still waiting on the $0 to go up for CC X360 owners!
