Castle Crashers Coming to PS3

Castle Crashers Coming to PS3

image

The Behemoth spilled the beans on their works in progress at Comic-Con today: a PS3 version of XBLA fave Castle Crashers and their enigmatic "Game 3," which sounds like some sort of competitive 2D action-platformer.

It's coming up on the one-year anniversary of Castle Crashers' release on Xbox Live Arcade, and finally The Behemoth has some good news for PS3 owners: You too will know the delight of smashing bad guys and fighting giant cats, sometime in the undetermined future. Yes, Castle Crashers is coming to PS3, though The Behemoth won't say when. Early reports are saying the game's basically identical to the XBLA version thus far. The Behemoth is mum on whether or not there will be new or exclusive content.

On the other hand, another future Behemoth title does have some sort of solid time frame for release (2010): the studio's work-in-progress project only known thus far as "Game 3." There have been teases and trailers for this one, but it's actually playable now at Comic-Con.

It's apparently a competitive-oriented action-platformer where you gather a whole bunch of players in a 2D stage and try to complete a certain goal: collecting gold, tagging walls with your team color, and uh, jumping on opponents' heads to extract their souls and get points?

The twist here is that you get to customize your approach by picking certain items to bring into battle, like fireballs, iceballs, boomerangs and more. Other wacky skills, which no doubt represent but the tip of the iceberg, include the ability to do slide tackles and, as GameSpot describes it, "pose like a statue to harm enemies." Sounds neat - hopefully we'll hear more about it before long.

You PS3 owners are in for a treat

Good for all the PS3 owners out there; it's a fantastic game and it needs to broaden it's horizons.

I am anxious to see if there's new content though.

Woohoo! I've always wondered about this game. Yay!

Alien or the King.
But It's a toss-up between the Red and Green for myself

Awesome news. Can't wait for it.

Good for Behemoth. Too many online titles are exclusive to either XBLA or PSN. A little tip for you PS3 owners... Blue Knight will be brilliant when you start playing. Ice magic ftw. It'd be nice for Behemoth to announce when they're releasing the next DLC pack though...

Finally!!!!

I heard about this game on Newgrounds a while ago, and t looks awesome! I'm so glad I'll finally get a chance to play it!

Good, now more people will know who Pazzo is and worship him like the vengeful god he is. :D

Lets be honest it doesnt matter who you play as... so long as you pick Pazzo as your pet. :D

Yes, it is Pazzo... He floats and finds treasure.

Sweet! This was one game I was hoping, but never believing would come to the PSN. Great news!

Nice, sounds good.

So will 'Game 3' also make it's way up to PSN? I didn't quite grasp that.

Castle Crashers is great, it's a steal at the price it was on the 360, so get it all ps3 owners
And i hope they put out that game 3 thing for xbox, sounds interesting

I usually try not to make 1 or 2 word posts, but honestly, all that can be said about this is:

HELL. YES.

Congrats PS3 owners. I don't need to tell you to "enjoy", because that's already a given ;)

That game has so many cute pets, and such an awesome ending.

Maybe this will satisfy your needs. (From one of your topics you made before).
The hell with maybe, This will satisfy your needs.

You may need to refresh my puny little earthling brain, which topic are you talking about?

Umm...I believe it was the need of an RPG one or something in those words. Castle Crashers has some RPG elements.

Persona 3:FES/Persona 4 should fill that hunger ;)

Jumplion:
Stuff about stuff

and then, Persona 5.

I was very excited when I read this on Joystiq yesterday. I've played Castle Crashers before, but only a few levels... Whatever, I know I'm buying it.

Honestly, Castle Crashers is the only game I regret not having a Xbox360 for. But now that will change!

The GREEN? Have you not seen the amazing might of the teddy bear? His magic RAPES all of the others! Well, the Xbox 360 has taken some games from the PS3, but none of them can compare to this, they DEFINETELY can't.

If I didn't already have this on my Xbox 360, I'd explode from happiness.
