We're getting closer and closer to the launch of Cat Quest II - it's out on Steam in a couple of weeks' time, with a Switch launch coming in "autumn" - and PQube has today shared a short list of new features that will be present in the game.
You see, this open-world RPG adventure is a sequel to Cat Quest, which launched on Switch back in 2017. It seems that quite a lot has changed since then, as you'll see below, so we'll hand it over to PQube to explain:
1. A Whole New Kingdom to Explore!
Vast deserts, towering rocks and auburn meadows: the Lupus Empire is just as beautiful, unique and full of quests as its neighboring feline land - which makes for the other half of Cat Quest II's map! Catventure through this chequered realm, join furces with new allies and help liberate it from its emperor-gone-mad: Wolfen!
The most requested feature following the success of Cat Quest and perfect for friends, families, couples and everyone else! Enjoy 2-player co-op as an unlikely pair of heroes to liberate the Cat Kingdom and Lupus Empire from rulers gone mad. Now the question is: are you more of a cat or a dog person?
3. New Weapon Types, Spells and Pawssive Bonuses on Armour!
What would an adventure be without some sweet loot? Cat Quest II offers even more diversity by adding new weapon types and spells as well as passive skills on armour pieces you find and upgrade during your quests! A diverse new arsenal of wands and staffs that boast lots of spell damage let you restore mana by attacking from the backline after unleashing powerful new spells! If you prefer whisker-to-whisker combat, here is a treat for you: Two-handers will expand the pool of melee weapons with broader blows and harder hits. The new passive skills on armour let you further customise your hero with perks like increased attack speed, magic resistance, extended rolling distance and much more!
We awarded the original game a solid 7/10, and talk of multiplayer and more content being thrown into the mix certainly has us hopeful for an even better experience this time around.
We'll make sure to keep an eye out for a final release date on Switch, but until then, why not let us know your thoughts in the comments below?
