In December of last year, Spelunky 1 and 2 were revealed for the Nintendo Switch. The launch period has been announced for summer 2021, but no firm release date has been given. As summer draws to a close, it’s time to find out the date. Thankfully, the release date and pricing for the two Spelunky games have been officially revealed, and the wait won’t be very long.

For the uninitiated, here’s a quick rundown of Spelunky 1:

“Spelunky is a unique platform game with randomly generated and fully destructible levels that deliver a new challenging experience every time you play. Travel deep underground and explore fantastic places filled with all kinds of monsters, traps and treasures. You will have complete freedom as you navigate fully destructible environments and master their many secrets. Stay or flee, kill or rescue, buy or steal… in Spelunky, the choice is yours and the consequences too!

In the meantime, here’s the synopsis for Spelunky 2 courtesy of the game’s eShop page:

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

The world of Spelunky 2 is even denser than that of 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). others). The world has expanded in other ways as well, with branching paths and multi-layered levels adding a third dimension to classic 2D platform gameplay.
