Castle Crashers, will be available to download in North America (USA, Cananda, and Mexico) on August 31st, 2010. Developed by The Behemoth, this award winning title stays true to nostalgic 2D side scrolling gameplay whilst adding a ladle full of brand new twists and fun. Entirely hand drawn by renowned artist Dan Paladin, Castle Crashers delivers unique hi-res illustrated visuals like nothing you've seen before.

Castle Crashers PSN will have several new features including:

Local join-in-progress Team Arena play Brand new Volleyball game mode 2 new trophies “You are Insane” and “Social Networker” A new Insane Store, with items to help you conquer Insane Mode

Castle Crashers features a unique mix of beat’em up action along with RPG elements letting you hack, slash and smash your way to victory. Along the way, adorable Animal Orbs can be discovered who will do everything from helping you find buried items to chomping on the enemy’s head. For the masochistic, the game also features an “Insane Mode” unlocked after defeating regular mode, which is... well… insanely hard! When beating up the bad guys just isn’t enough, battle it out in the Arena mode for a team or free-for-all, 4-player deathmatch. Or, because nothing says “medieval” like a good game of volleyball, see who has the best spike in the land in the brand new Volleyball game mode, featuring optional AI opponents for up to 8-player matches. Add to all this a liberal sprinkling of blood and gore (which, by the way, parents, you can turn off), and you have a game with endless replayability online or on your own.

Priced on the PSN at $14.99 Castle Crashers boasts 20 levels, over 40 weapons, and 20 unlockable characters. With online or local multiplayer gameplay, hours of adventure await!
