A sequel to the 2013 action-platformer Rogue Legacy is now in development, the game’s creator Cellar Door Games announced. The studio didn’t have much else to share beyond confirming that Rogue Legacy 2 is on the way. However, “a lot more info” about the sequel will be dropping “in the coming days.” For now, Cellar Door shared some in-progress screenshots showing Rogue Legacy 2’s more bubble-like art style.

Rogue Legacy originally launched in 2013 for PC. It was then ported to the PlayStation family of systems–PS3, PS4, and PS Vita–in 2014, Xbox One in 2015, and Nintendo Switch in 2018. The game was also ported over to the iOS platform in 2019.
We gave it an 8/10 in our 2014 Rogue Legacy review, saying, “It doesn’t have the secrets of Spelunky and it’s more predictable than The Binding of Isaac, yet at the end of every game comes a desire to hop right back in, spend your gold on some upgrades and rack up more monster kills, something the game encourages with a challenging new-game-plus option that appears after the credits roll.”
