Greetings PlayStationland! I wanted to introduce you to a brand-new addition to the Castle Crashers team! We are pleased to announce that our single most-requested character will be joining the battle on PSN on February 8th in shiny new additional content for Castle Crashers. We give you…. the Pink Knight!

Castle Crashers: Pink Knight

Born out of popular demand, rumor, and Tom Fulp’s Beard, the Pink Knight is ready to bring the love in. The playable Pink Knight will come packed with the Lollipop and four other brand new additional weapons. Warning: Adorable.

The Pink Knight Pack will be available just in time for Valentine’s Day on PSN for just $1.99 and 100% of The Behemoth’s revenue from Pink Knight pack sales will be donated to charities devoted to Breast Cancer Research.

Let me just say, the Pink Knight’s magic is unlike anything else in the game. It will make you happy. It is full of Love and Rainbows. Those meany barbarians will never see it coming.

With love from The Behemoth,

kelly

    Breast cancer awareness is a cause near and dear to my family. I will buy the game and the pink knight pack.

  • roemerbakker

    first!

  • Lonestar134578

    Glad to see a game company doing something about breast cancer awareness I will play as the Pink Knight proud.

  • Great looking character for a great cause, kudos TB :)

  • radiantshadow92

    totally buying this

  • Shou_KobayashiUS

    It’s not awareness it’s research, read the post ;).

    Anyway I added funds to my PSN account just so I can donate and claim my thank you :D

    • Kelly Revak

      Yep, we’ll choose charities that focus primarily on research.
      Hope you like Pink Knight and thanks for being willing to donate!

  • Adorable! Gives me reason to tear through this game again! Thanks!

  • I love breasts so yeah I’ll be getting this in support….

  • Trucidation

    Now I have no excuse to not own Castle Crashers. Guess I’ll be buying that plus the pink knight!

  • eyesofreality03

    fantastic job team, this is a purchase on my end asap!

  • I needed a reason to play Castle Crashers again. Thanks.

  • Great! I’m buying it.

    More games shoul do this.

    BTW, be careful using “Pink for the Cure!”

    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

    “Komen for the Cure is one of the most widely-known and best funded breast cancer organizations in the U.S. But the group says it’s found 83 cases of other organizations using the term “for the Cure” in its name. It is now challenging 47 of them for trademark infringement”

      ..edited.

      yeah, we’ve just seen a bunch of articles on this. makes us more than a little hesitant to donate through Susan G Komen. There’s better places for this money than going to lawsuits.

  • That’s pretty cool. I had Castle Crashers on the 360, but since I’ve moved to PS3 I miss the game. I should buy it along with the pink knight.

  • Put Casher Crashers on sale for half off and i will buy this game along with the DLC/Donation

  • errr Castle Crashers lol

  • Now that I can finally play this game online (!!!) I’ll definitely be buying this update.

  • Superstrokey1123

    I would totally get this but i dont have the game, will see if i can scrape the funds together to get it though. Great cause guys.

  • UltraRazpacho

    That magic looks awesome. I’ll be picking this up for sure.

    Also lol @12 Komen’s gonna get ya Behemoth. :P

  • @12 Wow, that’s stupid. They need to focus on actually finding cures rather than suing other people who try to as well.

  • Assassin_Pug

    Great cause, plus it will get people to play the game again. Not to mention the awesome character and weapons ;).

  • Gamers get a new character

    Charities get research money

    Behemoth gets more people interested in their game

    …I love situations where everyone wins. I tip my hat to you guys. Or…I would if I were wearing one. Erm. Right. Anyways, stay awesome!

  • My four year old has recently re-ignited our interest in this great game. I’m sure she will want me to get this DLC as well.

  • Great game and great idea for DLC.
    Check out my Fat Princess Warrior DLC idea for Castle Crashers on PlayStation Blog Share!

  • StrykerIsland

    I will buy this out of principle alone.

  • SilverBlade51

    I’ll buy it just to support the Breast Cancer Research… and to humiliate my friends in arena :P

  • Along with continued support for the game, I’m also glad to see that the proceeds go toward an this cause.
    So there will be four weapons, I wonder what are the other three not pictured will be?

  • MegamiTensei13

    Im going to buy this game and the dlc to help :)

  • I’ll be getting this. I still play castle crashers on and off with friends so it’ll be cool to have a new fantabulous character to play….as well as support breast cancer research.

    Awesome!

  • Great idea, Pink Knight its a must buy!!!

  • DIBBS! It’s soooo cute! <3

  • Breast DLC ever?

  • Kelly Revak
    Kelly Revak

    lolz

  • Great cause, great game, anything for research to make this world a better place!! I will buy for sure, even though I am busy playing other games!!

  • Anything for Behemoth after the Insane mode Contest winning count me in Tuesday!

    The pink magic is probably gonna be just as epic as the game’s ending. lol

    Will there be anymore updates for castle crashers or any behemoth style games coming to psn/ps3 KELLY?

  • @14 You guys are cheap! Buy the game at full price. I was planning on waiting for a sale but I gave in when The Behemoth made a blog post for the 360 sale.

    He said something like “If you were waiting for us to devalue ourselves, now’s the chance!”

    On topic, I’ll be getting this day one! I have just enough money on my account for something that is $1.99, and this is the best use of it.

  • FJ1100_rider

    I don’t have the game yet but will probably buy the dlc anyway so I can support breast cancer research and have it when I finally do buy the game
    I’ve had a bit over $2 in my wallet forever so might as well spend it for a good cause – wish more games would do this
    imagine if treyarch even gave 10% of dlc sales for black ops to charity ? they could do a lot of good .

  • Pink Knight fighting with a lolipop.

    LOL.

    Really clever.

    I’ll be buying this for sure.

    Any idea how much this costume will cost on PSN?

    ???????????????????

    :)

  • Dogofthunder

    @6 and Kelly Revak

    Awareness and Research are both good. Awareness leads to research. I would have thought my support of this would have applauded instead of nitpicked. Also, I don’t have all the facts about the Susan G Komen lawsuits, so I can’t speak about that directly. The organization has done things that I like and dislike, but they have helped a lot of people.

    • Kelly Revak

      Oh we’re not against Awareness at all! and breast cancer awareness is incredibly important for early detection and treatment. I was just clarifying where the funds raised in this instance would go. :)

  • @37, Read the post. $1.99 for the costume and 5 weapons.

  • If I didn’t already own the game on that OTHER platform, I’d be more than willing to download this and the character DLC. Maybe I’ll just download the DLC just to support the cause.

  • Nice! You guys should think about DLC for new story

  • Dogofthunder

    Sorry for being sensitive, it’s an important issue to me. Kelly, Behemoth and Playstation are amazing people for doing this, and everyone should buy the game and dlc, and support breast cancer research!

  • PlasmaSpirit

    Pink knight is adorable <3. I will be picking this up on the 8th. Kudos for donating.

  • This is a great idea! I lost my mother 9 years ago to IBC, so I fully support this. Thanks Behemoth :)

  • I’ll get this!
    I do the same like I did on PSHome! (Remember the pink Jersey?)

  • Hi will this also be coming to the EU region?

    • Kelly Revak
      Kelly Revak

      yes. Should be simultaneous, but let me check and get back to you. :D

  • Hooligantuan

    Good chance I’ll just buy the character even if I don’t have Castle Crashers.

    More of this kind of thing in the PS Store would be awesome. Props, Behemoth.

  • I need people to play Castle Crashers with. So if ppl are leveling their Pink Knight I’ll tag along. My highest character is like 10 :( Everytime I find an online game everyone has a lvl 60 something.

  • got any experience on newgrounds? just asking, (i am one of thoses animation maker ;))

  • What happen to the custom soundtrack this game was suppose to have?
