As promised earlier this week, Square Enix announced its new PS4 exclusive game during a livestream from the Tokaigi: Japan Game Party at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, near Tokyo.

The game, that was previously teased as “Project CODE Z,” is Minna de Spelunker Z (Everyone’s Spelunker Z), a new installment of the classic franchise started with Spelunker 32 years ago.

The game has been developed by Spelunker HD‘s studio Tozai Games, and will be released in Japan quite soon, on March 19th. It will be a free to play downloadable game supporting up to six players online.

The game will feature character customization and the use of a wide variety of pets. The business model will of course involve the purchase of premium items.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
