Castle Crashers jumps through another hoop, gets rated 'Teen'

Griffin: "We love the Xbox Live Arcade Service (fanboy placation: we love the PlayStation Network and WiiWare too), but it's a well-known fact that there are a number of hurdles a finished game has to clear before it can find its way onto the imponderable internets. One of said hurdles, labeled "the rating process" is actually three-hundred feet tall, covered in flaming, poison-coated spikes, and surrounded by a moat filled with bull sharks in mating season. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

Thankfully, in an act of incredible vaulting prowess, Behemoth's upcoming racist multiplayer beat-'em-up Castle Crashers recently cleared said hurdle, receiving a decisive "Teen" rating (the German judges, obviously confused and unimpressed, gave the effort a 7.5). There are a number of other hoops the adorable brawler must jump through before attaining that coveted XBLA certification, but we're hopeful that we'll be storming cartoon strongholds relatively soon."

The story is too old to be commented.

WTF!? A huge part of fun was the blood and gore shown in gameplay clips. This is just disgusting. I want the real Castle Crasher. Hopefully they'll release an unrated version on PC soon.

It will suk BIG time if Castle Crashers doesn't get the vixcera. I'm still really lookin' forward to this title... proly the ONLY XBLA title I've heard of recently that I'm lookin' forward too (Geom.Wars2 hurry up!) I loved Homonid cuz it was soooo over-the-top with gore and this will be a shame if it's dumbed down in that area.

I really wish developers could sneak in a way into each game for parental gore/mature content controls (not that many parents are tech-savy enough to use them) I'm just tired of losing out cuz in this day and age the whole world (esp. US) feels as though we have to "Disn-ify" every little thing so little Johnny won't cry, or have nightmares, or ask hard questions...

sorry... off my soap box now.
