Castle Crashers Remastered Hits Xbox One Next Week

There was a time before multiplayer indie games were played in gamer’s living rooms on a regular basis. In many ways, it seems that Castle Crashers on Xbox Live Arcade popularized the whole phenomenon.

Castle Crashers Remastered is an upgraded version of the now seven year old beat ’em up for Xbox One. There’s obvious changes such as high quality textures and framerate. Players will also find a new minigame and improvements to online performance and matchmaking.

Xbox Live Gold members who owned the game on Xbox 360 will be able to play Castle Crashers Remastered free of charge on Xbox One until September 20. Afterwards, they’ll be able to buy it at a discounted cost of $5 (over the regular cost of $14.99). Castle Crashers Remastered arrives on September 9.
