Following the critical success of Minna de Spelunker Z in Japan, Square Enix announced that Spelunker World is coming out today in North America exclusively for PlayStation 4.
A free-to-play title with “additional in-game content available for purchase,” Spelunker World is the follow-up to Spelunker HD on PlayStation 3 and sees you taking the role of a Spelunker, following the footsteps of his father who disappeared 10 years ago.
Square Enix adds:
Players can venture into caverns solo or together with up to six players online in search of legendary treasures while avoiding dangerous pitfalls, boulders and wicked creatures. Hidden within every nook and cranny are various power ups and unlocks to customize characters’ skills and appearances. The title offers an array of adorable pets that aid players as they uncover deeper and dangerous caves.
As a launch bonus, all players who start Spelunker World between November 11 at 12pm PT and December 2 at 11:59pm PT will receive 10 free cakes. With this bonus, you can use the Doggie Digging feature where your pet will go out to dig for rare items.
Square Enix didn’t say if/when Spelunker World would be out in Europe.
