Rogue Legacy 2 is finally coming to Switch. And, like any good roguelite, it's randomly generating onto Switch... today! Surprise! And the Switch release comes packaged with the Fabled Heroes update, meaning this release has everything you need to start building your legacy.

This genealogical adventure brings more randomised runs, character changes, and skills than you can shake a sword (or a bow and arrow, or a spear, etc.) at. This sequel to the fantastic original — which we loved on Switch — just expands on the already outstanding formula of the first game, which still stands as one of the best examples of the genre to date.

Rogue Legacy 2 brings in heirlooms, which allow you to unlock permanent abilities — but you have to work to find them. But you can also find Relics during your playthroughs, which will entirely change your run. The lovely 3D-rendered world, colourful characters, and precise controls have garnered tons of fans, proving that Cellar Door Games still has what it takes when it comes to roguelites.

In fact, here's a promising quote from the developer with regards to this Switch version, as included in the PR blurb:

"It was extremely important that no corners were cut when bringing Rogue Legacy 2 to Nintendo's portable console. We spent months ensuring there were no compromises to the high octane action and fluidity at 60 fps. For us, the Nintendo Switch version of Rogue Legacy 2 was a true labour of love, and we hope that comes through when fans finally get the chance to play it." - Cellar Door Games

No two runs will ever be the same, but building your castle and passing on your traits to your heirs makes this challenging take on the genre addictive and irresistible. The game will set you back £22.49 / $24.99 USD / €24,99 on Switch.
