Blasphemous 2 slashes its way to a summer release

Blasphemous 2 slashes its way to a summer release

Developer The Game Kitchen has officially announced the sequel to their brutal 2021 Metroidvania. Blasphemous 2 is bringing more glorious unholy imagery to PC and consoles later this summer. Check out the recently released Blasphemous 2 trailer right here:



The original Blasphemous was a harrowing, Souls-like platformer known for its difficulty and Catholic-based iconography, and from the sequel’s trailer, we'll be getting more of the same. According to the original game’s DLC, Wounds of Eventide, the Heart in the Sky prophesied the return of the main villain ‘The Miracle,’ who would go on to create a new miracle child. For this reason, you, The Penitent One, have been resurrected from your tomb and sent on a new mission to destroy this apocalyptic threat. According to the game’s Steam blog, the Penitent One will be thrown onto an “unfamiliar land, displaced from his final resting place, and thrust back into the endless cycle of death, and resurrections.” 

Based on the trailer, the new game doubles down on the outlandish imagery. We can expect a non-linear, maze-like world with loads of unholy monsters and hidden deadly traps. You will encounter various tortured NPCs whom you can help and obtain quests from. You will also get additional weapons, new moves, more upgradable skills, brutal combos, and unique finishers. Of course, we will see the return of vile, gargantuan bosses whose devastating attack patterns need to be memorized to be countered. Blasphemous 2 is surely going to be a phantasmagoria of blood and violence no Souls-like game fans would want to miss.

Blasphemous 2 has no firm release date yet, but it is set to launch sometime in late summer 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. You can keep an eye on our listings to get prices for a Blasphemous 2 Switch key.
