Gameplay Edit

  • New Minigame: Back Off Barbarian.
  • Removed All You Can Quaff.
  • Removed the ability to use the Fly Combo fully to mess around in cutscenes that allowed for it. Such a semi-significant example of this was in Lava World.[1]
    • At the very least, if you are high up in the air, you can control your descent and move a little closer than intended.
  • Removed the ability to save the game via exiting the game if, for example, the character set was desired, then quickly save after gathering up all possible items, etc.
    • Say for instance, the XBLA version. You choose what character set you want, whether it be through swapping weapons from the Weapons Frog or getting a drop from an enemy, then immediately Exit Game. The game will actually save what your character had when last playing.

Characters Edit

  • Former DLC weapons are now available in stores on Insane Mode (Xbox One).

Rumored Changes Edit

These are third party rumors started mostly by players or misinformed sources that have been proven false by both players as well as the Developers themselves.

Xbox ImprovementsEdit

These are features that have been added in the remastered version that were not in the Xbox 360 Version. These features were already existing on the Steam and PlayStation 3 Versions.

Notes Edit

In order to get Hatty Hattington, the Golden Whale, Emerald Sword, Lightning Bolt, Cardboard Tube, and Ninja Claw on Steam, you must purchase BattleBlock Theater. After doing so, start up Castle Crashers, and these features will be unlocked.
