Long in development title Castle Crashers has finally gone gold according to this post on the company’s blog. The game has completed production and is currently awaiting certification at Microsoft.
In development since 2006, the hack-and-slash title for the Xbox Live Arcade still does not have a release date seeing how unpredictably time consuming the certification process is at Microsoft. However, with core development completed, the game will surely come out this Summer.
Known best for its success on old-school 2D shooter Alien Hominid, The Behemoth has announced its next game: Castle Crashers, a 2D cooperative beat-’em-up game with gameplay similar to classics such as Streets of Rage and Double Dragon. Set in a medieval world, the game will be available on Xbox Live Arcade sometime next year and will offer co-operative play between 4 gamers.
Further details, including screenshots and videos, can be found on the game’s official website.
