Acclaimed Castlevania-esque rogue-like platformer Rogue Legacy is getting a sequel

Following an April Fool’s Day tease that made its veracity uncertain, developer Cellar Door Games has finally confirmed that, yes, it is indeed working on a sequel to its superb Castlevania-esque rogue-like exploratory platformer Rogue Legacy.

The original Rogue Legacy, if you’re unfamiliar, launched all the way back in 2013, and won immediate acclaim for its solid, procedurally generated action-platforming, bolstered by a compelling upgrade loop, and a nifty system that saw each subsequent play-through undertaken by one of your previous, now-dead heroes’ heirs.

Wonderfully, each new descendant was imbued with a distinctive mix of classes, abilities, and traits, ensuring each new play-throughs felt surprisingly, refreshingly different; new heroes might become tiny in stature or super strong, while others might be dyslexic (jumbling up all in-game text), colour blind (turning the world black and white), and a whole lot more besides.
