“Just to clarify again,” Yu says in a followup tweet, “we are taking the extra time to make sure that Spelunky 2 runs well on PC. That includes testing online multiplayer, but it’s not the only thing we’ll be busy with.” He continued on to say that the development team was “working hard to make sure the two release dates are as close as possible!”
Spelunky 2’s new Steam page has a bunch of nifty screenshots, some featuring a sloth, which is nice. It’s a detailed page that befits the sequel to such a beloved game, one which our Spelunky enthusiast Emma Matthews characterized as “the perfect sequel for returning players.” After viewing the trailer, she said: “Teeming with new enemies and more tricky traversal, Spelunky 2 is showing signs that it will pose a true challenge for returning players,” she said.
