Castle Crashers PSN Update: New Features

Kelly Revak's Avatar Posted by Kelly Revak on May 11, 2010 // Mayor of Behemothtown, The Behemoth

Hello PlayStation.Blog! I’m Kelly Revak from The Behemoth. We’re thrilled to be back on the PlayStation.Blog to give you another update about Castle Crashers for PSN!

First of all, we are happy to report that we have finished our internal testing, and have sent the title off to a third-party agent for some final testing before we submit it to the PlayStation Store. While we still don’t want to guess at a release date, we are definitely in the final stages of this adventure. Meanwhile, we wanted to tell you about another neat new feature.

Castle Crashers for PS3Castle Crashers for PS3

We have always had more ideas for Castle Crashers than we’ve had time to implement. So since we’ve had to rewrite the code for the game anyway as we bring it to PS3, we’ve been able to add some features that have been lingering in the backs of our minds since this whole thing started. Here is an example:

Player Arena matches will now allow you to choose teams! You can play 2-on-2 or take on the world with 1-v-3. Of course, you can still do free-for-all as well. Sharing a sweet, sweet victory with your friend is like eating a delicious cake in front of your other friends while they cry. It’s like their pride is inside the cake that you are devouring, and your teammate is your stomach helping to digest that pride. And there can only be one mouth and one stomach to eat it with, so the other mouths and stomachs have to watch even though mouths and stomachs don’t have eyes. Take that, eyeless teeth and stomachs.

Speaking of digestion…please do us a favor by tasting these screenshots and watch our QA ninjas team up to beat the tar out of each other. <3 Kelly.

Looks amazingly fun. Can’t wait to download this one!


+ rogerwilco on May 11th, 2010 at 1:03 pm said:

I own this on 360. I will own it again on PS3. Supporting The Behemoth and supporting PSN development at the same time – while also getting another copy of an amazing game? Done and done.

I tried the trial on Live, but due to not paying for Gold I felt the multiplayer would be lost in this title…

I will happily buy the game once it makes it to Europe PSN though, it seems a lot of fun with some friends.

I check The Behemoth Dev Blog everyday looking for info on this game. I’m obsessed. Haha. I just can’t help it – I’ve been dying to get my hands on this game since it was announced last summer. I love, love, love “old school” style beat ’em ups and this game looks incredible.

If this game were a man, I’d want him inside of me. You know, like Jesus.


+ GooieGreen on May 11th, 2010 at 12:53 pm said:

There is no reason to have a trial download. You people had 2 years to play this with friends on 360. Just buy it…


+ CRAIG19C on May 11th, 2010 at 12:58 pm said:

Yay! Thanks for the update! :)


+ gor1llap1mp on May 11th, 2010 at 1:15 pm said:

So, does this mean we could see future Behemoth projects arrive on PSN at a more timely manner?


+ KingBroly on May 11th, 2010 at 1:16 pm said:

Is Alien going to be playable in this version of the game?


+ HatmanTc on May 11th, 2010 at 1:22 pm said:

@35 some of us don’t have a 360(nor really fancy owning one). So a trail/demo is a really nice way to get those who haven’t had a chance to play the 360 version an oppertunity to get our hands on the franchise of the 1st time ever.


+ Ecks on May 11th, 2010 at 1:22 pm said:

If it’s $9.99 I’ll buy it on release day. If it’s $14.99 I’ll check out the demo then think about it, but probably wait. $9.99 is just the sweet spot for PSN games.


+ AceBeeDee on May 11th, 2010 at 1:24 pm said:

i have this game on my 360. my poor neglected 360. so happy its coming to my PS3, my always on “hope it dont burnout one day” PS3.

Hmmm, I have to pickup this game…thx for the info.

lol, @ 41 sec that cat freaked me out!!!

Game looks great guys! Thanks for bringing it to the PS3!!!

Thanks for bring this to the PS3, I hope for your next game to get a simultaneous release across all platforms!

Looking sweet!


+ MadMeat001 on May 11th, 2010 at 1:37 pm said:

i am happy that you guy’s took the time to make a good port for it :)


+ plaztiksyke on May 11th, 2010 at 1:46 pm said:

What is “standard audio” quality? If that means you’re using AAC (or, ugh, MP3), please encode your assets @ 320kbit/sec. A lot of ports from XBLA/WiiWare have 128kbit/sec (or lower!) lossy assets, which sound horrible on home theater systems when compared to other games. Is there any reason not to encode most assets using FLAC?

Keep in mind that PS3 users are less likely to run audio through their TVs, so audio quality is super important!



+ Edwerd on May 11th, 2010 at 1:56 pm said:

the price point is the factor here. no way im going to pay 14.99 for a game that has been out for year+ on another system.


+ manobon on May 11th, 2010 at 2:01 pm said:

I Know it’s been taking a while to recode the game for PS3, but…

Any chance of it being ported to the PSP? Seems like Such a good game for the portable (especially if it had online infrastructure mode).

Regardless, great job on making some great games, The Behemoth staff!


+ sam_i_jam on May 11th, 2010 at 2:01 pm said:

Looking forward to playing this with my friends on the PSN. Very rare to hear so many friends get excited for a downloadable title, but this one is going to be well-worth it.


+ vcotson on May 11th, 2010 at 2:02 pm said:

when u guys mean soon, you guys don’t mean by FALL or winter right? this would be a nice summer game =) lol


+ Xirvet on May 11th, 2010 at 2:04 pm said:

You guys should also make a portable version on the PSP. Would be awesome to bring CC in our pockets for example while taking the bus to go to work.


+ PoisenOak on May 11th, 2010 at 2:13 pm said:

Really looking forward to this game!!!


+ HESHTODD on May 11th, 2010 at 2:38 pm said:

It looks like it was a good game but really, now? Maybe at 4.99 but anything more no way. You guys should have made an exclusive title for the year + it took to port this game so we could feel as cared for as 360 owners. Honestly I don’t know why ps3 owners are going to care about this old game. What do all the stimulus pack haters think about this one?

    you are only as old as you feel, and Castle Crashers feels like a sprightly youth with an ice-cream cone! It has taken some time precisely because we have put all our love into this title and we hope you love it too.


+ Destiny89 on May 11th, 2010 at 2:42 pm said:

Is it possible to know about the price?


+ the_miyamoto on May 11th, 2010 at 2:43 pm said:

lol nice post. The cake metaphor was great.

Thanks for bringing this to the PSN and for bothering to put in extra stuff to make up for the wait. I hope it pays off for you in sales, and I’ll be sure to get it when it releases :)

    Thanks for your comments and your support!

    Cake metaphors make everything better. We like cake.


+ Hunter_xx_ on May 11th, 2010 at 2:53 pm said:

so any chance of this having custom soundtracks??, and what about future DLC support??


+ saintaqua on May 11th, 2010 at 3:01 pm said:

Thanks for adding new features. The people from Braid somehow didn’t think we’d need any incentive after making us wait.
I can tell you it is appreciated! *applause*


+ The1stMJC on May 11th, 2010 at 3:05 pm said:

Can’t wait looking forward to this game for awhile only thing that could make me not get it is the price.


+ donvarone on May 11th, 2010 at 3:17 pm said:

i bought this on 360 can i get free goodies for that :P i mean i got all the dlc add ons too


+ Blkant on May 11th, 2010 at 12:05 pm said:

Will there be a demo?

    + Kelly Revak on May 11th, 2010 at 12:43 pm said:

    Yes, there will be a trial version of Castle Crashers on PSN! The trial will not include Arena mode however, you’ll have to get the full version to check that out! :D



+ KwietStorm on May 11th, 2010 at 12:06 pm said:

Been waiting for so long. Can’t wait for release.


+ depward on May 11th, 2010 at 12:07 pm said:

Love CC on the 360 – will be double-dipping for the PSN release. Thanks for adding additional features for the PSN release!


+ Sindred on May 11th, 2010 at 12:12 pm said:

Thanks for bringing this over. With Halos and Gears of Many Wars, CC is definitely still one of my favorite games on the 360, despite all the fancy special effects of the former. I’ll gladly double dip on this to play with some of my PS3 friends.


+ V_Ben on May 11th, 2010 at 12:17 pm said:

Its almost here! I can’t wait! :-D

THIS…….IS……..GONNA……..BE……..AWESOME!!! Played through the 360 version too many times to count and unlocked everything within he entire game; and can you believe it, I had a fantastic time doing it…..cannot wait to do it once again on the PS3….


+ EZpickens on May 11th, 2010 at 12:23 pm said:

I’m really looking forward to this game. Here’s hoping it’s $9.99 not $14.99.


+ Capt-Fury- on May 11th, 2010 at 12:24 pm said:

hey Kelly! it would be nice If you submit some CC PSN avatars to go along with the release. I remember you releasing some gamer pics along with the other version.

Woot!! cant Wait!!

    We’re still working out all the details but we’ll definately announce this as soon as we know. We hope you enjoy the game! :D


+ plaztiksyke on May 11th, 2010 at 12:25 pm said:

Can’t wait for this! Now we just need Space Giraffe, Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures, and/or Geometry Wars from XBLA!

Couple of questions:
1. will it play in 1080p native?

2. will the audio be 24-bit and/or losslessly compressed like Critter Crunch and Braid?

3. We love local co-op! Will the online co-op/versus have voice chat support?

    + Kelly Revak on May 11th, 2010 at 1:26 pm said:

    1. yes
    2. no, i believe we have standard audio, but it sounds great!
    3. yes, voice chat is supported.
    4. Behemoth loves you.

That looks fantastic. Thank you for not giving us a straight port :)


+ BRIT-KO on May 11th, 2010 at 12:28 pm said:

Another port from the XBOX I don’t want, oh goodie!


+ Stuffgamer1 on May 11th, 2010 at 12:29 pm said:

I loved this game on Xbox 360, but never finished it due to controller/Xbox Live issues. I’m definitely planning to get it on PSN so I can play it with my preferred controller, over online that doesn’t steal my money. :D

Also, I second the request for PSN avatars. Blue Knight FTW!

Please do Alien Hominid HD too. It was my favorite
