Costume Quest 2 was developed by Double Fine Productions and published by Midnight City Games. It was released on October 31, 2014 for $14.99 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. A copy was provided for review purposes.
Appropriately released just before Halloween, Costume Quest 2 has more tricks, treats and timed-button pushes. The sequel to Double Fine’s 2010 Costume Quest, this release picks up shortly after the first game. The two main protagonists, Reynold and Wren, return as playable characters with new companions to battle alongside with, and, not to be forgotten, the supporting cast from the first game, which play an important role in the time-traveling tale.
Today, independent publisher Midnight City revealed that it is bringing both Costume Quest 2 and Gone Home to consoles this year. The announcement was accompanied by a trailer for each game, which you can check out after the jump.
Costume Quest 2 is the sequel to Double Fine’s charming Halloween-themed RPG from 2010. Like the original, the next installment will focus on the trick-or-treating twins Reynold and Wren who gain powers based on the costumes they wear. The new game will feature an improved battle system, new costumes, and new quests.
Developed by The Fullbright Company, Gone Home is a story-based adventure that saw release on PC last year. It focuses on a daughter returning home, exploring an empty house to discover what happened to her family while she was away. The game has been praised for its unique storytelling, for which it won numerous awards.
