It'd be a sin to skip it
The Game Kitchen and Team17 Digital are bringing Blasphemous 2 to the Switch on August 24th, 2023 with a physical release coming later in September. In preparation for the game’s arrival, IGN has shared another heaping helping of gameplay, and you can check it out above.
Featuring three unique weapons to acquire and master, and an enhanced skillset to choose from, players will have to use these new tools to survive and explore a land hell bent on sending them back to the grave. Monstrous enemies and challenges lurk around every corner, and The Penitent One must face them all in his mission to stop the prophetic birth of a new Child of the Miracle while collecting scattered pieces of lore, unpicking long forgotten secrets, and avoiding death’s final embrace time and time again.
Discover a rich non-linear world: A series of enchantingly grotesque landscapes await, oozing gothic charm and littered with unforgiving traps; there is no wrong turn to take, only scores to settle
Unleash savage combat: Brutal executions and expanded combos provide new and devastating ways to rain destruction on the abominations that await
Play your way: Blasphemous 2 provides the ability to customise and improve the Penitent Ones’ base skillset, and introduces new unique weapons that expand player tactics
Overcome intense boss battles: Twisted bosses with unique attack patterns and sundering abilities await in the darkest corners of this twisted new land
