Mossmouth’s duo of beloved roguelike platformers Spelunky and Spelunky 2 was announced for the Nintendo Switch year, and the two games have now arrived for the system. Check out their launch trailer below to get a glimpse of what’s in store for you.
Spelunky costs $9.99, while its sequel costs $19.99. The Switch has been a haven for indie for a while now, so the lack of Spelunky on the platform always felt a little strange, given how huge the roguelike is in the indie space in particular. To have the game and its sequel is great, because it also gives plenty of newcomers to dive in.
Spelunky 2 first launched last year for PS4 and PC. In our review of the game, we awarded it a score of 8/10, saying, “If you loved the original, you’re going to love Spelunky 2, and find it equal to its predecessor in all ways except one- where the original was a trail blazer, the new game seems content to, much like it asks of its players, simply plumb into familiar depths.” You can read our full review through here.
