When announcing that Castle Crashers Remastered would release in just a few days on September 9th, developers The Behemoth remarked that it’s been a full seven years since the original launched for Xbox 360. While they seem surprised by this stretch of time, some readers may be wondering whether a seven year remaster is really that worthwhile?
Well, fear not; The Behemoth are also quick to assert that the new edition of their game benefits massively from the new technologies of the new console generation and assure gamers that the remastered release will bring about a real advancement on the original.
The noted improvements as follows:
-New multiplayer mini-game called Back Off Barbarian
-Five times larger texture sizes than the original!
-Twice the framerate of the original! (60 frames per second)
-Performance updates, gameplay tweaks
-Online multiplayer performance updates
-Ability to find games easier and quicker online
Castle Crashers Remastered will cost $14.99 for Xbox One players in North America, but gamers who previously bought the title for their 360 can actually benefit from a free version of the game with an active Live membership and a promo code through to September 20th.
