The classic roguelite platformers are finally coming to Switch.
Mossmouth has announced that Spelunky and Spelunky 2 will be releasing for Nintendo Switch. Both titles are coming to the platform in Summer 2021. Check out the trailer below which showcases them in action.
While Spelunky is about 12 years old at this point with its original release, Spelunky 2 launched a few months ago for PS4 and then PC. The first game set the bar for roguelite platforming and difficulty with its numerous permutations and challenges. Local co-op, Deathmatch and Daily Challenge make their way to the Switch version along with 20 different explorers. Check out our review of the Xbox 360 version here.
Spelunky 2 makes big strides in terms of its level generation, mechanics and challenges. It introduces fluid dynamics (which works wonders with lava), mounts and other crazy new features. Again, the Switch version will support all of this along with four player local play and Arena mode. For more details on the PS4 version, check out our review here.
