Castle Crashers Coming to PSN

Chris Morell's Avatar Posted by on Jul 24, 2009 // Senior Social Media Specialist

Hidden amongst the madness of the Comic-Con 2009 show floor was a gem. Castle Crashers, a game that some hoped would eventually come to PS3, is finally headed our way. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a really clever downloadable co-op action game that utilizes some cool RPG elements for great results. And it was officially announced for PSN at Comic-Con.

We cornered the kind folks at The Behemoth for a little back and forth, so take a look at the video to find out why you need to keep your eye out for Castle Crashers. And get to know these guys because they promised to come back on the Blog when they have even more to talk about.

I have been waiting for this one for some time.

Can’t wait. Consider it a definite purchase.

Newgrounds And Castle Crasher FTW!

“Good to Know!”


+ linebeginstoblur on July 24th, 2009 at 2:24 pm said:

@48 I think it’s funny that you won’t even give a good game a chance, just because it was an exclusive to an opposing console for a while. Do you think BioShock is rubbish too?


+ SarshelYam on July 24th, 2009 at 2:33 pm said:

Chris…awesome, AWESOME interview! Thanks so much for keeping us in the know. If you have a chance, let the fine folks over at Behemoth know that a chibi-ized Kratos would fit rather nicely in the mix. Or a Nariko chibi…come on…please?


+ Vengeful-Chaos on July 24th, 2009 at 2:34 pm said:

Damn this is why I love Sony even if we don’t get it first we eventually get it. :)


+ Blackxino on July 24th, 2009 at 2:49 pm said:

can life just get any sweeter eh?
*Ninja Gaiden 2=Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
*Tales of Vesperia=Tales of Vesperia with nice contents
*Castle Crashers=Castle Crashers (please more contents).
*Lost Planet=Lost Planet good contents

Seriously, the Xbox 360 is just a prototype beta console, for testing out games!

I’ve always wanted to become a beta tester and test out games, now I did with Ninja Gaiden 2.

Now they’ll be testing out Conviction and we’ll get EXTRA and NICE STUFF for the Beast version!


+ MaceStation on July 24th, 2009 at 3:00 pm said:

Why would anyone feel the need to ask about trophies now? Since the start of this year trophy-inclusion has been mandatory so no game is going to come out without them.


+ linebeginstoblur on July 24th, 2009 at 3:09 pm said:

@60 Yeah. When new games come out, sometimes publishers will make the inclusion of trophies a big selling point, but for those of us in the know, it HAS to have trophies in the first place now anyway.


+ Link01 on July 24th, 2009 at 3:20 pm said:

god, originally I said Fat Princess was the Castle Crashers of PSN………. now it looks like we’re above the score :)


+ spunnups on July 24th, 2009 at 3:27 pm said:

Awesome game, Day 1 for me.


+ pecorre on July 24th, 2009 at 3:49 pm said:

Thanks Tom! Long life to The Behemot and Newgrounds! You rock!

I never thought Castle Crashers would be released on PS3. That’s an awesome news!


+ JLCthree on July 24th, 2009 at 3:52 pm said:

SOLD! Day 1. No questions. Even $15.

Now if only Braid would come out.


+ SyphonFilter- on July 24th, 2009 at 4:14 pm said:

LMAO Blackxino,i agree!


+ cronqvist on July 24th, 2009 at 4:18 pm said:

YAY! Please tell me it’ll have trophies, and I’ll be very very happy. Also… Game #3, please?


+ CrusherX on July 24th, 2009 at 5:16 pm said:

One of two Xbox Arcade games I really envied. Last year, I was starting to worry about some of the decisions Sony were making – but this year… this year has been absolutely fantastic. Tons of DLC and support for WipEout, Motorstorm and Killzone 2, Fat Princess on the way as well as games like Arkham Asylum, GT5 and God of War, and my personal favourite, Uncharted 2, to come next year. Even Home has been getting better over time and the Store was improved. You guys rock, keep it here with PS3.


+ starBlinky01 on July 24th, 2009 at 5:19 pm said:

LOL!! Tom Pulp for the win!!

I asked him about 4 months ago if they are making it for PS3, and he said ‘nothing is planned’.. well looks like that has changed!


+ niall077 on July 24th, 2009 at 5:36 pm said:

Alien Hominid HD Please

or ps2 BC so I can play my ps3 copy :)


+ niall077 on July 24th, 2009 at 5:39 pm said:

I mean my ps2 copy.


+ serversurfer on July 24th, 2009 at 5:56 pm said:

PLEASE support Game Launching in Home! This is by FAR Home’s best feature, and no one supports it! /cry


+ Kchow23 on July 24th, 2009 at 6:35 pm said:

How much to get this game????


+ DeathGazer on July 24th, 2009 at 7:12 pm said:

Big kudos to The Behemoth for bringing this gem to PSN.

Will look good on my XMB, next to PixelJunk Shooter and Fat Princess.


+ DaBrowny951 on July 24th, 2009 at 7:45 pm said:

the 2 games i was most jelous of the 360 4…..castle crashers n ninja gaiden 2…..lifes good


+ Pucci2099 on July 24th, 2009 at 8:07 pm said:

epic good news! day one purchase!


+ KingBroly on July 24th, 2009 at 8:38 pm said:

If the PSN version had the Necromancer DLC before the XBLA version, that’d be awesome. Or at least GET IT is what I should say. I’m mad that they haven’t brought that out yet. Whatever, I’m buying it again because the game is that awesome.


+ afdgsfdgnb on July 24th, 2009 at 8:43 pm said:

Can’t wait to play this game.

And when you put it on a physical disc, I will be happy to buy it.

No disc, no sale.


+ Axecution on July 24th, 2009 at 8:54 pm said:

Alien Hominid? Plex? xD

Dude, i’d kill to get Alien Hominid in HD on the PS3. I mean, obviously i could just play the PS2 version… but its not the same as hitting the game on the GAME spot of the PS3. >.>


+ dtom2444 on July 24th, 2009 at 8:55 pm said:

Bring to PSP. That is all.


+ Axecution on July 24th, 2009 at 8:58 pm said:

Oh, By the way- i can’t rate posts for some weird reason. Im using whatever the latest version of Safari is for Mac. It worked fine up till now…

Just letting you know. I’ve seen some people complaining about it around the comments. >.> It’s not that big of a deal… its not very often that i rate posts anyway. Just tried to give this a 5 star and… nothing.

Im not complaining. Just trying to help… :D


+ Ausohoj on July 24th, 2009 at 9:25 pm said:

Good question every one. how much will it cost? And when will braid come to PSN?


+ HongoXIII on July 24th, 2009 at 9:29 pm said:

Awesome! I cannot wait to get this game.


+ Sakimori_X on July 24th, 2009 at 10:38 pm said:

Please do NOT let this come out on the same day as Fat Princess. If that happened, my brain would exPLODE from all the infinite awesomeness!


+ syk1288 on July 24th, 2009 at 11:43 pm said:

IMG! Excellent news, Chris. I LOVE THIS GAME! This is why I love Sony. They give you GREAT surprises. I love how your making all of xbox games unexclusive. Castle Crashers is one of my favorite Arcade games of all time. Thanks for making this awesome game come to the PSN.

+ mcnichoj on July 25th, 2009 at 1:01 am said:

Yeah, I love how 360 CC fans got shafted on the second DLC pack because they were too busy developing CC for the PS3.


+ Thrasher20 on July 25th, 2009 at 1:30 am said:


I heard the term “hack & slash”

Automatically sold :)


+ clupula668 on July 25th, 2009 at 5:15 am said:

I”m pleasantly surprised to see there aren’t a ton of posts from people whining about getting a year old port. Good show, everyone.

Can’t wait to download this.


+ StonTemplePilot on July 25th, 2009 at 7:28 am said:

+ HaMmOdY on July 25th, 2009 at 7:32 am said:
