The fast-paced platformer puts players in the shoes of one of four female heroes, each with their own fighting type: Lilac the Dragon Girl (Speed Type), Carol the Wildcat (Brawler Type), Milla the Hound (Explorer Type), and Neera the Frost Knight (Power Type).

The world of Avalice unfolds via a sprawling world map where players can locate treasure, landmarks, and over 100 unique NPCs – each of which they are encouraged to interact with and catalogue.

Freedom Planet 2 also includes a Battlesphere arena mode, where players can practice on bosses they’ve already beaten, a Classic Mode where the game runs as its predecessor, and an Adventure Mode where anywhere is open to explore.

Freedom Planet 2 will release in Spring 2022 for Nintendo Switch and PC.
