The inspiration behind it all returns to its 2D action roots! Castlevania’s unforgettable characters & gothic setting meet the fast-paced combat of the award-winning roguelite Dead Cells in this unprecedented collaboration. A gateway to a striking castle has suddenly appeared, and an imposing warrior called Richter asks you to help him vanquish the great evil within.

Enticed by the promise of new loot rather than a sense of moral duty, you strike out through the grounds and corridors of the gothic castle to find and kill this mysterious Dracula…

Slay hordes of his supernatural minions as you progress through our biggest DLC yet, including two levels, three bosses and a new storyline!

Dead Cells was always compared to Castlevania, and having the two meet in this way with such reverence on the part of Motion Twin is weirdly heartwarming.95God is a Geek
Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania is an immaculate love letter to one of its inspirations, but it still retains so much of its own identity and humour as you explore Dracula’s castle as The Beheaded.80TheSixthAxis
Great levels, great bosses, and the possibility of more Castlevania that isn’t **** machines? Who are these people and what have they done with Konami100AdrienBertrand
It’s Dead Cells! It’s Castlevania! Need I say more? A great homage to a great, often now overlook franchise.80relaxus
This game is the perfect blend of classic and modern, with a fantastic atmosphere and memorable moments. Everytime this game is played, it’s a guaranteed good time.100LMD
