When Castle Crashers launched on Xbox Live Arcade back in 2008, it was hotly received by gamers and praised for its remarkable beat ’em up gameplay, enjoyable RPG elements, delicious art style, and awesome sense of humor. It was an indie game that left its customers satisfied, so it came as no surprise when it eventually landed on the PlayStation Network, where it once again received rave reviews and a ton of acclaim.

But why do those blasted console gamers get to have all the fun? What about all of you PC-lovin’ folk? Well, you’ll be happy to know that Castle Crashers has been announced for Steam by developer The Behemoth.

This PC version of Castle Crashers will boast some cool features including controller support, Steam Achievements, cloud saving, voice chat, and online multiplayer. It’s great to see actual genuine care being put into the game to make it feel like more than just a regular ol’ port.

No release date or pricing info has been announced yet by The Behemoth, but you can expect to see more of Castle Crashers on Steam in the near future. In addition to some Gamescom representation, the developer announced that it would bring the game to PAX Prime later this month. Stay tuned for more info.
