Cellar Door Games have announced that Rogue Legacy 2 is now available for Nintendo Switch. The announcement came by way of the latest Nintendo Indie World presentation. Check out a snazzy new trailer, replete with tight 2D platforming and hectic action below!

Acting as a sequel to its 2013-released predecessor, Rogue Legacy 2 comes packaged with the extensive Fabled Heroes update, giving players full access to the entire scope of its genealogical roguelike in a portable fashion. Rogue Legacy 2 seeks to differentiate itself by adding Heirlooms that grant heroes permanent abilities, giving them access to different map areas in true Metroidvania legacy alongside expanding scope in its combat design, accessibility options and maintaining a fluid 60 FPS during all aspects of gameplay.

Players will initially take on the role of a hero seeking to uncover the legacy of a dead kingdom, exploring six unique biomes via 2D platforming and reflex-orientated combat. Its novel wrinkle lies in the death of its first and ongoing heroes, where players will choose their next hero from their legacy: a selection of ancestors bearing unique traits ranging from the humble bookish adventurer to the combative diva clown. This selection grants them access to unique classes, traits and weapons based on who they are, all in the evergreen pursuit of another victorious run.

Rogue Legacy 2 is also available for PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store as well as Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Stay tuned to RPGFan for all news Rogue Legacy and RPG!
