Dead Cells, the beloved 2018 rogue-lite metroidvania platformer, might be getting a native PS5 version complete with the recently-released Return to Castlevania expansion soon, if a recent ESRB listing is to be believed.
The listing on the Entertainment Software Rating Board calls out a PS5 version of Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania Edition, which certainly implies that it’ll be a complete or near-complete package with the base game and at least that most recent DLC. Return to Castlevania already launched for the PS4, Xbox, Switch and PC versions of the game on March 6th and has received praise from both critics and fans for appealing both to fans of the classic Castlevania games and Dead Cells itself.
Publisher Merge Games is yet to confirm anything, but it seems like a done deal at this stage and we’ll update once we know more.
The Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania DLC contains the following:
14 weapons, such as the Vampire Killer, Throwing Axe & Holy Water
Two new levels through the outskirts and haunted corridors of Dracula’s Castle
Three epic boss fights with Death & Dracula
20 new outfits like Alucard, Sypha Belnades and the Belmont family
51 original Castlevania tracks + 12 re-imagined tracks in the Dead Cells style
Three new storyline with Richter Belmont and Alucard
Richter Mode – a secret level inspired by Symphony of the Night, where you play as Richter Belmont with old-school moves and weapons!
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!
