After a somewhat protracted delay, Castle Crashers finally made its long-awaited appearance on the PSN back in August of 2010, a full two years after it debuted on Xbox LIVE. Thankfully, it was worth the wait.
Making up for the hold up, developer The Behemoth have announced that a new Knight is on his (her?) way on the PSN this February 8th. As this is the US Store update date we’re assuming a European release will follow the next day or, you know, soon. In case you’re wondering, an XBL update is planned for the future.
Here’s a description of the new recruit:
Born out of popular demand, rumor, and Tom Fulp’s Beard, the Pink Knight is ready to bring the love in. The playable Pink Knight will come packed with the Lollipop and 4 other brand new additional weapons. Warning: Adorable.
The extra good news is that the entire $1.99 cost of the plucky pink paladin will be donated to Breast Cancer Research. You may like boobs – you may even have boobs – regardless, whether it has touched you personally or a family member, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women, with research in this area crucial for the health of the fairer sex worldwide.
Women are absolutely awesome so we’re asking every TSA member who has the game to the pick up the new addition to the castle crashing company. We don’t care if you no longer play it, we’re trying to beat cancer here, people, it’s a worthy cause. And you get a new Crasher. Win/Win.
Update: The Behemoth have responded to our query regarding sales outside of the US going to charity. It’s good news. Mayor of Behemothtown, the right-honourable Kelly Revak, said:
I have to confirm release dates in other regions, but if it doesn’t release simultaneously, it should be very soon. And yes, all proceeds The Behemoth receives from Pink Knight pack sales globally will go to Breast Cancer research. :D
