Marvelous Europe have recently confirmed that Galaxytrail’s Freedom Planet 2 will launch digitally on 4th April 2024 within Europe and Australia for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. XSEED Games will be handling the North American release.
Previously announced for a Winter 2023 release, Freedom Planet 2 is the sequel to Freedom Planet, a game which Marvelous Europe published onto the Nintendo Switch in 2018, that saw three lovable characters, Lilac, Carol and Milla, fight to protect planet Avalice and restore peace through fast-paced side-scrolling adventure that could easily be seen as a tribute to classic Sonic games. Freedom Planet 2 on the other hand will see these three characters return, with brand new abilities, along with a new character Neera to once again save the day. This console version of Freedom Planet 2 will also come with a Boss Rush mode, a feature which will be added to the Windows PC version of the game at the same time as the console release.
Return to the world of Avalice to battle an ancient threat in Freedom Planet 2, the long-awaited sequel to the beloved 2014 action-platformer. In the years since the events of the original game, our three returning heroes have refined their signature abilities, making them more formidable than ever before. Take advantage of Lilac’s speed with her Dragon Boost, reach new heights with Carol’s Jump Disc or motorcycle, or take a more measured approach with Milla’s shield. And all-new playable character Neera won’t be left out in the cold, as she can use her powerful Frost Arts to punish foes. Like its predecessor, this fast-paced combat-driven platform adventure gives you the flexibility to take on each stage exactly how you want. With a carefully tuned balance of speed and exploration, and gorgeous 2D visuals featuring refined character sprites, Freedom Planet 2 expands on everything that made the original a modern classic for a bigger, better, and more enriching retro experience.
Freedom Planet 2 is currently available on Steam for Windows PC, but will be making its console debut onto Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on 4th April 2024.
