Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania DLC reviewed by Cameron Hawkins on PC, also available on PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.
The latest paid expansion to Dead Cells is a shining blueprint of how to do a crossover right. It celebrates the history of Castlevania while mixing it with Dead Cells’ own identity to make something that’s more than the sum of its already excellent parts. Not only does this collaboration feel like it makes total sense, the utmost care has clearly been put into every aspect, whether it be the still fantastic monster-slaying combat or the huge number of secrets waiting to be found inside. Regardless of whether this is the last content update Dead Cells will get or not, developers Motion Twin and Evil Empire deserve to receive their flowers and proudly take a massive bow.
