Castle Crashers

Earlier this year, American-based developer The Behemoth lifted the lid on Castle Crashers Remastered for the Switch. This is the first time the company will bring one of its games to a Nintendo platform since the GameCube generation.

Now, after "months of responding to questions and posts and tweets" asking when exactly the game would arrive on Nintendo's newest system, a blog post has confirmed this version will launch next month, on 17th September for $14.99 USD. Pricing for other regions has not been revealed.

The Switch eShop version of the remaster includes HD Rumble, online play and up to 4-player local Joy-Con support. This is backed by 60 frames per second gameplay, texture sizes "five times greater" than the original game, the fast and frantic mini-game "Back Off Barbarian" and all of the previously released downloadable content - including characters, weapons, and animal orbs.

The Behemoth also mentioned how it had no plans for cross-play, so you'll just have to stick with fellow Switch players. Here's a new trailer showing off the Nintendo version of the game:
