Cellar Door Games and Nintendo announced the arrival of Rogue Legacy 2 on the Nintendo Switch during the Indie World showcase on November 9, 2022. It was quite a startling revelation.

Rogue Legacy 2 is a pretty great follow up to the original. It expanded nearly everything with all sorts of new biomes to explore, new enemies and bosses to defeat, mysteries to unravel, and all sorts of new classes to explore with a cavalcade of hereditary traits to the players benefit and deficit. All of this came together proper to bring Rogue Legacy 2 a litany of highly-scored reviews and praise, including here at Shacknews. With the game finally confirmed for Switch and launching today, players will be able to take that adventure and enjoy it on the go or at home on the Switch console.

Rogue Legacy 2 on the Switch even contains the game’s previous updates and content additions. Stay tuned for further updates and reveals for the game and look forward to finding it in the Nintendo Switch eShop as of today!
