Costume Quest 2 Coming to PC & Consoles This Year

March 10, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


It’s a big day for Midnight City, the indie label for Majesco, as the company announced that both Costume Quest 2 and Gone Home would be coming to consoles this year. We’ll get to Gone Home a little bit later, but for Costume Quest 2, it marks Double Fine’s first sequel, and will be released this Halloween for the PC and unspecified consoles through digital download.

Returning to Auburn Pines, Wren and Reynold have to protect Halloween once again by using new costumes that transform them into “giant super powered fantasy Hallowarriors.” Details scarce at this point, though there will be an upgraded battle system and story “that is unmistakably Double Fine.”

Wondering how Costume Quest 2 came about? Check out this funny video that features way too many close-ups of grown men eating candy:

Tim Schafer, Creative Director at Double Fine, talked about the sequel:

For the last couple of years, whenever Halloween came around, I felt like something was missing. No matter how many pumpkins I carved, apples I bobbed, or candy I ate, it just couldn’t fill the big spooky hole inside of me. But then I realized what was missing: I needed more Costume Quest. And also, I really wanted a T-Shirt with glowing skulls on it.
