When potential prices leaked
from the official Xbox Japan blog, gamers feared the possibility of paying over $20 for Castle Crashers
on the XBLA. While Microsoft strongly denied the controversial pricing of both Braid
and Castle Crashers
the former ended up releasing for the leaked price of 1200MS Points. Today, Xbox owners waiting for the sky to cave in on them when Castle Crashers
was officially priced are breathing a sigh of relief.
On its official blog
developer The Behemoth has confirmed
that Castle Crashers
will ask 1200MS Points when it releases on Wednesday, August 27 -- rather than the rumored 1800MS Points. Arguably the most anticipated Arcade release this summer, Castle Crashers
promises a classic single player and co-op beat-em-up experience wrapped in The Behemoth's classic art style. We're excited and for 1200MS Points we think the game has the potential to set the XBLA
world on fire.Note: Obviously, the time shown in the image of this post is off.
