Spelunky 2 gameplay trailer invites you to explore the dark depths once again


Going underground

Developer Mossmouth has released a brand new trailer featuring gameplay for the sequel to one of the most addictive - and taxing - platform adventures in modern gaming history, Spelunky.

The Spelunky 2 trailer introduces us to young explorer Ana Spelunky and her band of cohorts, as they explore treacherous and hazard-filled environments, the traversal of which will require twitch-inducing jumps, strategically-placed explosives, a selection of wild tools and weaponry... and more than just a little bit of luck.

Hoo-boy, it looks fast. I know my own approach to Spelunky is snail-paced at best, but here it looks as if Ana and co. have a bus to catch, as they blitz through dark caves, dangerous jungle undergrowth and ancient ruins. Also of note are some nifty liquid physics, adding a realistic weight to water, lava and other such substances and even some rideable creatures! According to the trailer's teasing finale, we will get the opportunity to join in the journey - on PS4 and PC - in 2019. I cannot wait.
