Last September, Switch owners were treated to a pleasant surprise when Hopoo Games' acclaimed action-platformer Risk of Rain suddenly appeared on the Switch eShop. Now, it seems like Nintendo's hybrid platform could be receiving the 3D sequel in the near future.

Risk of Rain 2 for Switch has been recently rated by the USK – Germany's classification board. This follows on from rumours at the end of March, when dataminers found multiple file names referencing the Switch in the PC version of the game. This included a mention of handheld mode, Joy-Cons and even Pro Controller support. All we need now is an actual confirmation. In the meantime, take a look at the rating below:

Here's some information about the sequel as well as some screenshots, courtesy of the Steam page:

The classic multiplayer roguelike, Risk of Rain, returns with an extra dimension and more challenging action. No run will ever be the same with randomized stages, enemies, bosses, and items. Play solo, or team up with up to four friends to fight your way through hordes of monsters, unlock new loot, and find a way to escape the planet.

If you would like to try out the original game, you can purchase it from the eShop right now for $9.99 / £8.99.
