Castle Crashers is one of the games we gush about a lot. The game is a darling to the Co-Optimus crew and, to be fair, we have a good reason to be excited about the game. It is a four player, Golden Axe-style game made by the Alien Hominid guys. That alone should get your heart a flutter. Our constant coverage of the game has made us (and hopefully you) more excited. We've discovered that the game will have 22 unlockable characters, fun stat-boosting "Animal Orbs," and both a cost and a release date.
But what's that you say? You want footage of the game in action, and lots of it? Well, you wish is our command. The kind crew at Destructoid has a whopping 15 minutes of gameplay. They also promise to reveal 18 more minutes of gameplay on Thursday. Man, August 27th cannot come soon enough, can it?
