Sneak Peek of Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania DLC Released Today in Throwback Teaser
Deadly werewolves, haunted armors and food stuffed into the walls - oh my. The unprecedented collaborative crossover adventure Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania from Motion Twin and Evil Empire will be available for fans dreadfully soon on Switch, but for now fans can sink their teeth into a fresh teaser trailer channeling the classic Castlevania games today for the anticipated DLC.
Today’s trailer sets the stage for what’s to come when Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania launches: glimpse the haunted hallways of Dracula’s castle and the other spooky areas you’ll explore, alongside formidable enemies fans know and love from Castlevania.
Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania is the biggest DLC for Dead Cells to date and a labor of love from Motion Twin and Evil Empire. With two new biomes to explore, 14 iconic weapons - including Castlevania favorites such as the Vampire Killer, Throwing Axe and Holy Water - and a host of incredibly undead, dead and mostly dead enemies to dispose of along the way. Each throwback weapon featured in the game has been tweaked to reflect the fast-paced, frantic style of combat of Dead Cells, but using them successfully won’t be a walk in the…dark.
Featuring insanely tough battles with Dracula and even Death himself, the DLC unfolds an intriguing new storyline in which The Beheaded is approached by Richter Belmont following the appearance of a strange, malevolent castle. Drawn by the promise of new loot more so than an ethical sense of duty, players will need to harness their utmost undead fighting skills to defeat the evil within. An alternative soundtrack accompanies the fight, providing 51 original Castlevania tunes as well as 12 truly iconic tracks that have been reimagined in the style of Dead Cells.
Announced last month at The Game Awards, this unparalleled collaboration sees Motion Twin and Evil Empire going back to their roots, paying tribute to the franchise that inspired the very beginnings of Dead Cells.
