After going dark on Spelunky 2 since August 2019, Mossmouth's Derek Yu has finally shared an update on the sequel to the 2D rogue-like classic. We don't have a release date just yet, which is said to be getting "closer and closer", but the developer has shared some new PlayStation 4 screenshots to make up for that. Let's get a good look at them all below.

Yu claims that the team has been working behind the scenes on improving the visuals to make them pop more, in turn creating a "living, dynamic world". Spelunky 2 will also feature new items, returning NPCs, and "a dynamic, multilayered soundscape that is much more immersive than the first game." Deathmatch will be just as important as Adventure mode this time around, while journals and menus are said to sport improvements.

Spelunky 2 is shaping up to be an excellent sequel which we hope to be playing at some point this year, but what say you? Has the game fallen under your radar after going dark, or are you still just as excited? Let us know in the comments below.
