Early last year, the Switch eShop received the brutal role-playing game Darkest Dungeon and this followed up with a physical release a few months later. Red Hook Studios, the developer behind the title, has now announced a sequel to the multi-platform game first launched in 2016.

A release date for Darkest Dungeon II has not been revealed and currently, there's no official word about the platforms it will eventually arrive on. What we do know courtesy of a PC Gamer interview, is the metagame is all about "enduring a grueling journey" rather than "cleaning up your backyard." Beyond this, there'll be a "significant" tune-up to the mechanics and presentation.

To celebrate the announcement, Red Hook released a teaser trailer. Check it out below:
