As announced on the poster in the DLC description for Steam, Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania features 20 fancy new outfits that you equip for the protagonist of The Beheaded. Some, like the Dracula outfit, give the prisoner a cool and stylish look. In contrast, outfits like the Alucard Outfit or the Maria Outfit will simply make you look almost identical to their corresponding NPCs. Either way, this DLC gives you enough styles to last more than a few runs as you work to unlock the new weapons or acquire more boss stem cells.

Unlock all outfits in Dead Cells Return to Castlevania
If you’re determined to unlock all 20 Dead Cells Return to Castlevania outfits, there are three things you need to know:
- Some costumes are acquired by completing specific tasks, such as finding NPCs, accessing secret areas, or simply progressing through the expansion’s story. Another way to unlock some of the new outfits is by farming a particular mob.
- Boss-related outfits come in different variations, depending on the number of boss stem cells activated.
- There are two other “flawless” versions which are only obtained by defeating the two DLC bosses without losing any HP.
