CASTLE CRASHERS REACHES PLAYER MILESTONE
â€”Over 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 LIVEâ€™s first â€śSummer of Arcade.â€ť
Since then, it has consistently been among Xbox LIVE Arcadeâ€™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.
â€śIt 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€ť, said Kelly Revak, Mayor of
Behemothtown. â€śWe are so grateful to all the players for supporting us. Weâ€™re going to do
something pretty exciting to thank everyoneâ€ť said Revak. â€śLetâ€™s just say thereâ€™s an Xbox made
of gold involved. GOLD.â€ť
Independent developer The Behemoth continues work on its next title BattleBlock Theater,
announced for Xbox LIVE Arcade.
