Castlevania is coming to Dead Cells

Return to Castlevania

Return to Castlevania

The first announcement of The Game Awards pre-show just might end up being one of the best reveals of the night. Dead Cells, one of the best games of the past five years, is getting a new DLC campaign in 2023 that’ll bring some familiar faces. Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania looks like it’ll bring Simon, Richter, and Dracula to the world of Dead Cells.

Or is the Beheaded invading the world of Castlevania? Either way works for me as these are two excellent franchises that’ll likely go together like peanut butter and jelly. Or a brick wall and cooked chicken.

Return to Castlevania is the third DLC package for Dead Cells, following Rise of the Giant and The Queen and the Sea. The game is available on nearly every platform and was recently released for Apple Arcade as Dead Cells+. That’s how I’ve been playing it recently and I keep forgetting how much I love this game. Hopefully, I’ll be able to experience this DLC on the platform when it releases in Q1 2023.
