We've got a nice surprise arriving later this month on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in the form of Rogue Legacy 2, and for now at least, it's actually an Xbox console exclusive. It launches on Thursday, April 28th.
It follows the 2013 original, described as a "genealogical rogue-LITE," which means "it has all the trappings of a typical rogue-like (randomised runs, changing characters, and more), but with persistent upgrades, and persistent dead heirs."
Rogue Legacy 2 has been in early access for two years now on PC, where it has established a "Very Positive" rating on the Steam platform, but developer Cellar Door Games says it's now time for the proper v1.0 release:
“Rogue Legacy 2 is finally reaching v1.0 and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Our goal for Rogue Legacy 2 was always to make ‘Rogue Legacy 3‘ because we didn’t want to settle for just more. It had to stay true to the original, but also stand on its own as something new.
After nearly four years of development, bringing it to the fans is the final step in this long journey, and we hope they find it as special as we do.”
Excited for Rogue Legacy 2's arrival on Xbox later this April? Let us know down in the comments below.
