CASTLE CRASHERS REACHES PLAYER MILESTONE
—Over two million castles crashed—
San Diego, CA, December 28, 2010— On Christmas Day, Castle Crashers® reached a
milestone that few Xbox LIVE ® Arcade titles can claim: 2 million players. If we put all these
people in a place and gave it a zip code, this would be the 5th largest city in the US. Castle
Crashers is among the first Xbox LIVE Arcade titles to reach 2 million players, based on unique
gamertags on the leaderboards.
Castle Crashers launched in August of 2008 as part of Xbox LIVE’s first “Summer of Arcade.”
Since then, it has consistently been among Xbox LIVE Arcade’s top selling games. The 2D
adventure has shown no sign of slowing its record-breaking pace, remaining in the top 20 most
downloaded Xbox LIVE Arcade titles consistently since its release. Castle Crashers continues to
be a fan favorite, and is the highest player rated game on Xbox LIVE Arcade.
“It is incredibly humbling to look at the leaderboards and see that crazy number. Initially
releasing the game we hoped a few hundred thousand people would play it. We never
dared to think of one million players, let alone two million”, said Kelly Revak, Mayor of
Behemothtown. “We are so grateful to all the players for supporting us. We’re going to do
something pretty exciting to thank everyone” said Revak. “Let’s just say there’s an Xbox made
of gold involved. GOLD.”
Independent developer The Behemoth continues work on its next title BattleBlock Theater,
announced for Xbox LIVE Arcade.
