Since Rogue Legacy first debuted, the only other title that Cellar Door Games has released is Full Metal Furies.
The days of laying siege to castles and adventurers being chosen due to their genetic qualities are not over yet, as Cellar Door Games is hinting at a sequel to Rogue Legacy on Twitter.
Rogue Legacy is a Metroidvania roguelike that is available on a multitude of systems. The premise of the game is to defeat four bosses that inhabit a castle, which has a random layout every time the player enters. Once the main character dies, a portion of their gold is saved and the player chooses one of their descendants to take on the castle. The gold is used to buy upgrades, which can unlock character classes, magic items, and passive buffs that the next generation of heroes can use during their run. Rogue Legacy is one of the best modern platformers and everyone should check it out on one of the many systems it’s available for.
Rogue Legacy was first released in 2013 and it’s well overdue for a sequel. Developer Cellar Door Games has dropped a big hint that a sequel to Rogue Legacy is on the cards, as the company’s Twitter page has uploaded an image showing the sword from Rogue Legacy with a number 2 over it, with a prompt for fans to check back on April 2.
Since Rogue Legacy first debuted, the only other title that Cellar Door Games has released is Full Metal Furies. The time is right for a return to the world of Rogue Legacy, especially now that the original game has been released on practically every modern system, so no one has an excuse to have not finished it by now.
We should point out that this update was posted on April 1, so there is still a chance that it could be an April Fool’s joke. It seems legit, as usually, a fake announcement would involve an actual announcement, rather than a tease. If this turns out to be an extended Rick Roll, then we’re not buying Rogue Legacy again on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X… until it goes on sale.
