Yes.

If you click on the very first link in the OP you can look at the box art.

I added a quick rundown of some of the common questions to the OP, though I do plan to make an OT when the game comes out (if nobody beats me to it).

You can play fine in single player mode. When you get that controller prompt, just hold down L and R and press A.

[edit]

Here's a link to a fan translation of the text in the demo:

In order to reach the items blocked off by switches, you need either another player, or an ability you get later in the game. (I cover this in the video I posted on the previous page!)

This has happened with multiple games on 3DS where f2p games get a port with all f2p elements removed and a base price added and IMO it's always been a better experience.

Thats fine then. As long as there is a way to fly solo.
Its not that I won't be playing online but I'd prefer that not to be mandatory for 100%ing stuff. =)

EDIT: Gone ahead and preordered the physical release from Amazon JP.

Playing the demo for the first time, and it's pretty addicting.

Hopefully it comes in English. At some points in the demo I don't know what I'm doing lol.

I thought the controls on the PS4 version were very laggy, not nearly as responsive as the ones in the PS3 Spelunker HD. From what I've played of the demo, the controls are much tighter, just like they're supposed to be.

I've played like 8 levels in the demo. I think the game is fun, but I'm not buying it in Japanese. Also, looking at the exchange rate, this is going for about $48. Which means it'll be $40 or $50 here. I don't know how much content is in this, but I don't think I would buy it for that much.

Spelunkers HD on ps3 is one of my favorite games of all time..

When I saw what they did with the PS4 one.. Simpler cutesy characters, free to play bullshit, etc, I thought my Spelunker days were over.
Actually last night, a fried and I were looking for something to play and I thought maybe we could try out the ps4 Spelunker world. There's not even local play on that shit. Disgraceful.

Anyway, this switch version is an improvement for the local play and removal of f2p elements. If I get a switch, I'll get this game and give it a chance.

does this game have anything to do with the indie Spelunker that was on various platforms?

Spelunker = Long-running series that started in 1983
Spelunky = 2008 game partially inspired by Spelunker, otherwise unrelated

I've enjoyed playing the Japanese demo. I wish this were coming out here (and cheaper, TBH).

FINALLY! I can post to NeoGAF... Hey SpeedBeatz, first thanks for that Google Sheets, also glad to see other importers, I was basically the only one talking on the GameFAQs forum about this game.

Cheers, Happy Spelunking! :D

Just played this in the office with a few colleagues, absolutely in love it with. I've been playing single player up until now, which is still really fun but it truly shines with a few people huddled around.

The brutality and unforgivingness of it is a good thing, harsh but fair. Makes rewards sweeter and failures funnier.
