Derek Yu’s amazing rogue-lite platformer is finally getting a sequel.
In a rather shocking development, Derek Yu’s Spelunky 2 was announced with Mossmouth and Blitworks developing. The reveal trailer for the sequel didn’t really show any gameplay but it did feature the teaser of “Looking to the skies, the walls are shifting once again”. It also seems like the protagonist of the first game has settled down and started a family with his daughter taking on the next big adventure.
On Twitter, creator Derek Yu confirmed that Spelunky 2 would arrive for PS4 and Steam first. The first game released on a number of platforms including PlayStation Vita and Xbox 360 so it’s highly likely that Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions come later.
Spelunky first released in 2008 and earned heaps of critical praise for its randomly generated levels, rogue-lite elements and awesome mix of platforming, exploration and combat. There’s no release date for Spelunky 2 just yet but at this point, it might be safe to assume that it’s 2018.
