Spelunky and Spelunky 2 To Launch on Nintendo Switch Summer 2021

The latest Indie World Showcase recently announced that popular video games Spelunky and Spelunky 2 is finally coming to Nintendo Switch.

The two games will be coming to Nintendo Switch in Summer 2021. This is excellent news for fans of the franchise who played the game on PlayStation Vita a while back. Now they can play it again on the go.

Fans will be able to explore the everchanging underground worlds of both games and now on portable mode.

Here’s the game description of Spelunky via Nintendo:

The classic “roguelike platformer” that paved the way for other roguelike-inspired indie titles.

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 game description via Nintendo:

Spelunky returns in this greatly-expanded sequel to the original roguelike platformer!

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.
