Blasphemous 2 – Check Out the Announcement Trailer

Developer The Game Kitchen and publisher Team17 have shared a new trailer to announce Blasphemous 2, a hardcore Souls-like metroidvania, that will be hitting PS5, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch and Steam in late Summer 2023. To celebrate this very special occasion, the teams released a whole minute of goodness in a video you can find above. It contains both bits of gameplay and a very brief animated scene.

“Blasphemous 2 follows The Penitent One as he awakens in an unfamiliar land, displaced from his final resting place, and thrust back into the endless cycle of life, death, and resurrection.”
