CASTLE CRASHERS REACHES PLAYER MILESTONE
âOver two million castles crashedâ
San Diego, CA, December 28, 2010â On Christmas Day, Castle CrashersÂ® reached a
milestone that few Xbox LIVE Â® 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 LIVEâs first âSummer of Arcade.â
Since then, it has consistently been among Xbox LIVE Arcadeâs 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.
âIt 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 millionâ, said Kelly Revak, Mayor of
Behemothtown. âWe are so grateful to all the players for supporting us. Weâre going to do
something pretty exciting to thank everyoneâ said Revak. âLetâs just say thereâs an Xbox made
of gold involved. GOLD.â
Independent developer The Behemoth continues work on its next title BattleBlock Theater,
announced for Xbox LIVE Arcade.
