“Yes, it’s official. Rogue Legacy 2 is in development! We’ll be releasing a lot more info in the coming days,” the company’s tweet confirms.
Rogue Legacy is a 2D rogue-lite with an ancestral twist — players take on the role of a knight going through a randomly generated castle, but with every permanent death, that knight’s heir would be the next to journey into the castle. Players would choose after each death from one of three different possible heirs, with different classes and abilities, that would then let players try to venture deeper into Rogue Legacy’s world.
IGN praised Rogue Legacy in our review when it debuted, calling it “a hugely compelling mix of 2D action-platforming and Roguelike game design, with excellent pixel art and just the right level of challenge.”
