Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania Release Date

Dead Cells is an extremely successful and fun rogue-like that has been out for a really long time. As one of the founding indie games, Dead Cells remains relevant with constant releases of DLC. That said, Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania is arguably the most exciting Dead Cells DLC yet.

The release date for Dead Cells is March 7, 2023. Whether you’ve played Dead Cells, own every DLc, or haven’t picked it up yet, Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania is a great reason to return to one of the most beloved indie games.

Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania will feature two of the main protagonists in Castlevania and will feature a lot of the combat mechanics as well. The art style of the DLC will also look very Castlevania-esque.

Combining Dead Cells and Castlevania is a match made in heaven. The genre “metroidvania,” which Dead Cells falls into, was created in part because of Castlevania. In this DLC, Dead Cells will pay tribute to Castlevania, a series that it pulls a lot of inspiration from.
