During today's Nintendo Direct showcase, Motion Twin announced that the major DLC expansion for Dead Cells, called Return to Castlevania, will be heading to the Switch on March 9th, 2023.

Classic characters like Richtor Belmont, Alucard, Dracula, and Death all appear to make substantial appearances, with the latter two serving as fearsome boss characters.

"The inspiration behind it all returns to its 2D action roots! Castlevania’s unforgettable characters & gothic setting meet the fast-paced combat of the award-winning roguelite Dead Cells in this unprecedented collaboration.

A gateway to a striking castle has suddenly appeared, and an imposing warrior called Richter asks you to help him vanquish the great evil within.

Enticed by the promise of new loot rather than a sense of moral duty, you strike out through the grounds and corridors of the gothic castle to find and kill this mysterious Dracula...

Slay hordes of his supernatural minions as you progress through our biggest DLC yet, including two levels, three bosses and a new storyline!"
