Team17 and The Game Kitchen have revealed that Blasphemous 2 will release on Nintendo Switch “later this year.”
Set after the events of the original Blasphemous‘ 2021 update Wounds of Eventide, the sequel sees the return of the supernatural entity The Miracle. Awakening in an unfamiliar land, this leaves The Penitent One no choice but to defeat the monstrosities that lie in wait and to stop the prophetic birth of a new miracle child from coming to pass.
Displaced from his final resting place and thrust back into the endless cycle of life, death, and resurrection, you can expect to be confronted with grotesque enemies and titanic bosses – needing to utilise and master new weapons and an enhanced skillset to survive long enough to deliver judgment to those who stand in your way.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:
- Discover a rich non-linear world: A series of enchantingly grotesque landscapes await, oozing gothic charm and littered with unforgiving traps; there is no wrong turn to take, only scores to settle
- Unleash savage combat: Brutal executions and expanded combos provide new and devastating ways to rain destruction on the abominations that await
- Play your way: Blasphemous 2 provides the ability to customise and improve the Penitent Ones’ base skillset, and introduces new unique weapons that expand player tactics
- Overcome intense Boss Battles: Twisted bosses with unique attack patterns and sundering abilities await in the darkest corners of this twisted new land
Blasphemous 2 will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide “later this year.”
