Mossmouth and Blitworks have confirmed that Spelunky and Spelunky 2 will see release on Nintendo Switch next year.

These roguelike games will challenge you to brave your way through treacherous tunnels and caverns, watching out for leprechauns, ghosts, flying fish and galloping turkeys as you explore the unknown.

Spelunky Overview

Spelunky is a unique platformer with randomly-generated, fully-destructible levels that offer a challenging new experience each time you play. Journey deep underground and explore fantastic places filled with all manner of monsters, traps, and treasure.

You’ll have complete freedom while you navigate the fully-destructible environments and master their many secrets. To stay or flee, to kill or rescue, to shop or steal… in Spelunky, the choice is yours and so are the consequences!

Spelunky 2 Overview

Meet the next generation of explorers as they find themselves on the Moon, searching for treasure and missing family. Spelunky 2 builds upon the unique, randomized challenges that made the original a classic, offering a huge adventure designed to satisfy players old and new. Explore the game alone, play locally with up to four players, or, for the first time, join up with friends online to unravel its mysteries together (or battle it out in competitive Arena modes).

Spelunky 2’s world is even denser than the one in the original game, offering more areas, characters, traps, and items, as well as new ways to interact with them (and for them to interact with each other). The world has expanded in other ways, too, with branching paths and multi-layered levels adding a third dimension to the classic 2d platforming gameplay.

Spelunky and Spelunky 2 will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2021.
