Dead Cells: Return To Castlevania Edition Seemingly Headed To PlayStation 5

The bundle appears to be a native launch for the platform.

Story Highlights

  • Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania Edition is presumably getting a native PlayStation 5 release. It has been rated for the platform by ESRB.
  • The game is an impressive blend of Metroidvania and roguelike presented in a 2D platformer fashion along with a long list of impressive collaborations.
  • While there has been no statement from the developers yet, ESRB’s rating offers a degree of concrete information. An announcement might be made once the title is ready to be released.

The ESRB has rated Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania Edition for Sony‘s PlayStation 5. Motion Twin’s “roguevania” title will presumably be getting a native release on the platform along with a physical bundle for its latest DLC pack. Dead Cells was originally released for last-gen consoles along with Nintendo Switch, Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android (thanks Gematsu). 

Return to Castlevania is Dead Cells’ fourth paid expansion. Released earlier this month, the content pack features characters, weapons, and enemies from Konami‘s renowned Castlevania series. Furthermore, it includes a secret level inspired by the classic Symphony of the Night and allows the player to play as Richter Belmont with several systems reminiscent of Castlevania itself.

Considering the nature of Dead Cells as a game, getting a native release on a current-gen console offers sizable benefits. Being able to take advantage of modern hardware would deliver a more compelling experience in terms of visuals and gameplay performance. Its ambitious collaboration spree since its launch is also something that elevates it in the gaming ecosystem.

As of now, there has been no actual announcement for the game coming to PlayStation 5 with a physical bundle. However, ESRB’s rating does offer some concrete information. It’s likely that the announcement will be made in the coming months as the game is finalized for the platform.

Dead Cells along with its expansions is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile platforms.
