Castle Crashers Confirmed For PSN

Hardly anything stays exclusive this generation (although we're convinced thatgamecompany will only make PSN exclusives in the near future), and Castle Crashers is the latest to go multiplatform.

As evidenced by GameSpot, this former Xbox Live Arcade gem is now scheduled to debut on the PlayStation Network some time soon. If you're not familiar, this game embraces the age-old classic premise of knights chasing after damsels in distress. You will use teamwork, take advantage of some animal friends, and utilize all different types of weapons and magic to achieve your noble goal. Basically, it's a "Lite" action/RPG; you will gain experience and level up, and enhance base statistics like strength, defense, agility, and magic. You can play by yourself or cooperatively online, and it was one of the best-received downloadable titles on XBL when it first arrived. You can check out the video at GameSpot, and we're really hoping to get the full release details some time soon. It'll be another great addition to the PSN, and remember, you can really stock up on these downloadable titles if the $60 retail games are a daunting task. For anywhere between $4.99 and $19.99, you can nab plenty of super fun games, and you never have to leave your house! Not a bad setup, that.

We'll try and whip up a preview for you at some point here, and in the meantime, stay tuned for other PSN titles like Fat Princess.

I'm almost certain it is. Which makes this announcement bittersweet.

Bitter: An XBLA game!? COME ON! That's not Mass Effect at all!!!

Sweet: Castle Crashers is awesome! YES!

Actually sixth axis said it's not...but they said don't get too excited about the secret game, it's not L4d, gears, halo, or mass effect. Honestly I'm more likely to buy castle crashers than any of those games (well L4D looks good, but my money has to go to other sweet games coming out)

I'd say around $9.99 for this. Might be less, but that seems to be the going rate for these types of games.

South Park is americas greatest comedy show achievement. Its downright genius.

Completely satirical of humanity and each episode has many great messages and thought provoking themes. Of course, its geniusly funny too...and thats saying something as i'm hard to please comedy wise. I like British comedy like Brass Eye, Jam or Alan Partridge.

I have heard nothing but good things about this game so I'll probably buy it as soon as it releases.
A little off topic but on the psb is a video of the new multiplayer game mode in uncharted and it looks amazing you guys should check it out.

Boring? No. Trust me, I have been praying for this game to come to PSN ever since I played it on my friend's 360.

I'm guessing somewhere around the "not very" range, but I can't say for sure.

However.... MULTIPLAYER CO-OP! That's all I need to hear.

60usd will net you a 320gb which is plenty of space. Well I'm happy with it anyway.

Wow, when I read the headline on this I thought it said Cattle Crashers, and I thought 'What a stupid game that sounds like' Now that my eyes are working properly...well, I'll have to wait and see before I buy this one. I'm kind of having fun with the original Wolfenstein 3D and pinball right now...

I got it on 360 as soon as I hooked my 360 up to Live. It is incredibly fun and highly recommend it to anyone out there. As long as you're not offended by fart and poop jokes.

As for buying it on PS3? I already have it on 360, but I only got 1 controller on 360 and 3 controllers on PS3. My friends all have 360's and thats all they play. Sadly, they believe the PS3 is crap and are stuck in the 2007 mindset that the PS3 has little to offer. Makes me so angry!!!!!

Anyways, if I play PS3 more than 360, is it worth getting this game again? Anyone have an opinion about what I should do? Just keep playing the 360 version and have friends bring round their 360 controllers? Or spend the extra 15 bucks and get it on PS3 as well?

Something tells me that if you're friends are stuck in the 2007 mentality, then even if you download it on the PS3, They will still bring over their x box controllers because they won't like how the PS controller feels...A lot of Xbox people I know don't like how the PS3 controller fits in their hands. The same way I think the xbox ones are too bulky. Unless you decide to trade your xbox for some new friends to play the game with, then I wouldn't worry about downloading it on the ps3. ;P

Who's spending money on "rpg lite" these days? Not me. Let me see the demo then I'll think about it.

Sweet! I guess Paladin listened to me when I nagged him about it at PAX :P

But seriously, I guess we can now look forward to receiving The Behemoth's third game, as well.

This game is not worth $15. Honestly it's something I'd expect to find for free on addictinggames.com - not that's it's terrible, but there are other titles like this on XBLA where the developers do not understand the value of their game, like Lode Runner. If you looked around, you could probably find freeware equivalents for the PC. This isn't like PixelJunk or thatgamecompany, where you're probably not going to find anything like it around.

But that's just my opinion. If you have three friends to play it with, then it doesn't really matter what you pay.
