Castle Crashers: Remastered Coming To Xbox One

Recommended Posts

The onyl thing I'm seeing 'worth' it for the remaster to buy again would be the better matchmaking and the minigames. Maybe the owners of the original will get a discounted upgrade-type thing?

Castle Crashers Remastered will feature the following:
 
– 5x increase in texture sizes
– Uncapped framerate — 60fps
– Various performance updates and improvements to gameplay and online multiplayer
– New mini game: Back Off Barbarian

 

Info on mini game:
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 4 players can be supported online or offline. Back Off Barbarian will only be available on the Remastered edition of Castle Crashers.
 

Note: Steam users will also get a chance to experience the remastered version in the future. The development of the Steam update will begin later this year.

I think its time I get an Xbox One.....

Same here.

 

Not just because of CC-Remastered, but because my 360 is five years old, it might burn out soon.

 

And knowing that I'll be getting Game 4 and CC-Remastered makes me want to get it even more.

 

I hope the steam version of it comes out soon! :D

I'm pretty hyped about the improved match making.

 

the visual crap and minigame who cares...

 

I hope the steam update fixes the issues I've had with multiplayer on cc. It is HORRIBLE to play multiplayer on PC.

Perfect timing!  I was just starting to think that Castlepedia needed some lovin' again.  It's just too bad that I'm still on a PS3.

I really really hope that our characters cross over. That would certainly be a lot of work for us to get all of them back.

I'm fine getting reset in the new version.  I'm sick of being called a hacker.

I dont see any reason for me, myself to buy this. I have to start all over again and i cant play it on my PS3 like im used to.

And i never play minigames and i cant even see the difference between this one and the old one with the graphics.

They should atleast add a few more weapons, pets, 2 more characters and atleast 3 bonus lvls with a boss battle at the end.

If not, then im not going to buy this game just to lvl up 4 characters to lvl 99 and unlock every character and complete insane mode from the beginning again.

If it resets, I'm not getting it.  I earned my 20+ Gold Skulls and I'm not doing it again.

 

Some games will allow your achievements and data to transfer over on the One and others don't.  Seeing as they haven't announced it I don't believe they will be.  In order to increased the texture and add a new mini game they had to rewrite the game code again.  

 

What I really want is for them to change the arrow magic for all the secret characters and make them unique to each one.

A bit weird tbh. I guess on PC is already 60fps? I dunno, but it seems a bit pointless.

 

All current released versions are 30 fps (including PC).

HOLY SMOKES IT'S DAN.  sorry for going off-topic. Either way I will probably buy the game again, I love playing it but I know some people never got a chance so it can be fun. I wonder if those game breaking combos are still possible.

Well, dumb 'ol Cat Guard was spacing out and posted this in the wrong thread, so here it is, in all it's glory!

 

We’ve recently announced Castle Crashers Remastered in all its glory! I wanted to take this time to talk about why we decided to do this and what it means to us.
 
About 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. We’d all move onto our new consoles and Castle Crashers would be stuck there on the old ones. We didn’t really like the idea of the game no longer being available to you guys or any newcomers. Millions of people have enjoyed the game and written into 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.

 
We chose to bring Castle Crashers Remastered to the Xbox One seeing as Castle Crashers’ original home was on the Xbox 360, having more than 4 million happy players! And for you PC gamers who might be curious, Castle Crashers on Steam will in fact receive these same updates to the game in the future!!!
 

 

 

 

This is a game that means a lot to us. It was a very defining moment for us as a company. Your continued support has brought us all the way to this point, which is almost EIGHT YEARS after its release! Seriously, THANK YOU!
 

 

 

 

So instead of simply porting it we felt like we should update it and make improvements. Math time!!!! The original Castle Crashers shows 407,040 pixels at any given moment at 30 frames per second. Castle Crashers Remastered is displaying 2,073,600 pixels at any given moment all while 60 frames per second. That’s 5.094 times more pixels shown at double the framerate! For anyone wanting to see a visual of what that means for the size and clarity of the resolution, please see this:

The game seriously feels better due to its buttery smoothness in all its double frame rate speeds all while and it looks nicer with much larger textures. But we didn’t just end there!

One of the things that haunted me about the older version was a minigame called All You Can Quaff. It consisted of lots of fast and furious button mashing. Some people love it, but I just felt like it wasn’t the best we could do. So we made the call to replace it with something we’re confident would be much more fun for most people. It’s called Back Off Barbarian, and it’s a mini game where you and your friends run from Barbarians (or other baddies!) in frantic survival. You can revive each other if you find the potions on the board, but once everyone is gone it tallies your time up. Some players love to see if they can beat their old time while others just go back for the “potato chip” style gameplay. Just one more! Just one more! It’s good stuff, that I can promise. Here’s a quick Vine to show you what it looks like:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to a new mini game, we’ve made some characters available from the start. The Pink Knight seems to be so iconic to you guys out there that we decided to unlock the Pink Knight by default so you can use this character right away in the story, arena, or the mini game.
 
We’ve also changed how the multiplayer menus work, which seems a little minor but can be pretty big in practice. With improved networking, everything involved with playing along with friends online (or with strangers!) has improved the experience significantly.
 
To summarize, for the past year, we’ve been updating Castle Crashers to perform and look a lot better in Castle Crashers Remastered. We’ve got a new minigame, and a lot of little tweaks in the corners. Maybe that’s not exciting for someone if they’ve played through it all. And hey, that’s totally fine. I understand that! For anyone who might be looking for something new, we’ve got Pit People brewing, and man am I proud of that thing.
 
We’ll be announcing more details as upcoming tradeshows roll around. You’ll probably hear things about prices, release dates and all that other stuff.
 
I’ll keep in touch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks everyone for enjoying our stuff and keeping us doing what we love. We’ll keep doing our best!
 
Love,
Dan Paladin

TLDR:

5.904 times more pixels

2x framerate

No more All You Can Quaff

New minigame: Back Off Barbarian

Pink Knight is no longer a DLC, in fact, it is now a default character!
