Roguelike enthusiasts are surely beaming today as after years of waiting, Spelunky 2 has finally landed on PS4. While the game’s release on its own merit is the most notable thing today, Mossmouth also released a lovely launch trailer to celebrate the occasion and it’s definitely worth watching.

The launch trailer for Spelunky 2 appropriately sets the stage for the sequel and introduces us to the game’s new overarching plot. Playing as the character Ana, you’ll venture into the hidden depths of the moon in search of your mother and father, the latter of which was the protagonist from the original Spelunky. The entire trailer is then presented with voiceover from Ana’s mother, who is conveying a message to Ana via a note that was left behind.

While talking about the overall narrative thrust of this sequel is presented in a lovingly way, there’s also a whole lot of new gameplay on display, too. If you haven’t seen much of Spelunky 2 in action just yet, this new video does a great job of showing off some of the new locations and mechanics that have been brought to the follow-up. It looks like there should be enough to chew on here for years to come.

You can check out the launch trailer for Spelunky 2 down below. While the game is out on PS4 today, it won’t be releasing on PC until two weeks from now on September 29. Keep an eye out for a review from us once we get our hands on that version of the game.
