The biggest surprise to come out of Sony’s pre-show Paris Games Week 2017 press conference was that a new Spelunky title is on the way from Mossmouth. Appropriately named Spelunky 2, the action platformer will release on PlayStation 4. No gameplay was shown, but the reveal trailer did show that the protagonist from the first game has gotten married, and had an adorable child (that plays with the dog from the first game) since the events of the original.

For more on the original game, check out our Spelunky review. Here’s what our reviewer had to say about the game:
Jumping from Vita to PlayStation 3 works extremely well thanks to cross saving. Your progress carries over seamlessly, meaning you can pretty much have Spelunky ready to go anywhere, a huge plus thanks to how easy it is to pick up and play in short bursts. This is quite possibly one of the best uses of the ‘cross’ feature I’ve seen since picking up a Vita.
There’s absolutely no reason not to give Spelunky a go, it’s probably one of the best games out for the moment on the Vita and even on the PlayStation 3. You’ll be coming back to it time and time again, not just to hone your skills or take revenge at it, but also to see what’s next. It’s a brilliantly conceived idea that makes for a great reason to just keep going at it. The rewards are boundless. If you survive, that is.
Spelunky 2 is set to release on PlayStation 4.
