36 years ago, all the way back in 1988, a side-scrolling action platformer called Beyond the Ice Palace released for ancient platforms like the Amiga, Atari ST, and Commodore 64. The game didn't really have much of an impact at the time, but that hasn't stopped developer Storybird Studio from making a sequel, almost four decades later.

That's right, Beyond the Ice Palace 2 is happening, and it looks great in its reveal trailer, which you can watch above. Taking clear inspiration from the Castlevania series, it's got some cool art direction and the animations are satisfyingly smooth. It's coming to PS5 "soon".

Are you up for a new action platformer? Dare we ask if you're at all familiar with the original Beyond the Ice Palace? Feel free to date yourself in the comments section below.
