One of the regular perks of a Nintendo Switch Online membership is access to Game Trials, in which you can download and play full versions of games for a week - with enough hours it's certainly possible to reach the credits in some of the titles that have featured.

Nintendo of Europe has announced its next NSO trial, and it's a rather good one - Spelunky 2 will be available to play from 25th to 31st May, though subscribers can pre-install now if they want to be ready to go next week.

Spelunky 2 received plenty of praise when it was released in August 2021 - we awarded it 9/10 in our review and said the following.

Spelunky 2 is a masterclass in great roguelite game design, expertly combining crushing difficulty with a steady drip of new secrets and lessons to keep you coming back for more. Some may be put off by the steep challenge—this is certainly a game you have to work for a bit—but putting in the effort is sure to reward you with plenty of thrilling memories. We’d give this game a high recommendation to any fans of roguelites or challenging platformers, and even if that doesn’t describe you, this is still certainly worth a look.

It's certainly one for European subscribers to try out when it arrives next week; we'll also keep our eyes peeled, as always, for the next NSO game trial in North America.
