After years of silence regarding a sequel to one of the most well-regarded games, Sony released a surprise announcement on their Playstation Blog that Spelunky 2 will finally see the light of day.
In an interview with Spelunky creator, Derek Yu from Mossmouth, fans of the original can expect the second outing to “feel like they’re playing a continuation, both storywise and mechanically.” This doesn’t mean the game will be a reskin however, as Derek Yu was quick to point out that he feels the latest entry will be a “deeper and richer” experience. For example, instead of just running through the levels to get to the end, in the second game “each level will have a second layer that you can go back and forth between.” Other major additions include mounts and online multiplayer.
We’ve added the trailer for the game below, and look forward to playing it firsthand when it releases on Playstation 4 sometime in 2019.
