Thursday, 20th April 2023 – Team17 Digital and The Game Kitchen have premiered the very first look of Blasphemous 2 during last night’s Indie World Showcase. Coming to Nintendo Switch™, PC, PlayStation®5, and Xbox Series X|S later this year, 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.
Set after the events of the original Blasphemous’ 2021 update Wounds of Eventide, Blasphemous 2 sees the return of the supernatural entity The Miracle, leaving The Penitent One no choice but to explore a strange unfamiliar world, defeat the monstrosities that lay in wait, and try to stop the prophetic birth of a new miracle child from coming to pass. Featuring grotesque enemies and titanic bosses clambering to return him to the grave, The Penitent One will need to utilise and master new weapons and an enhanced skillset and try to survive long enough to deliver judgment to those who stand in his way, while unravelling long forgotten secrets.
