Double Fine’s trick-or-treating RPG Costume Quest is getting a sequel published by Midnight City.
Don a costume and get ready for candy: Costume Quest 2 is coming to consoles and PC later this year. Majesco offshoot Midnight City announced it would be publishing the Double Fine-developed title, a sequel to the charming downloadable hit Costume Quest.
Midnight City and Double Fine broke the news with a quirky video that naturally shows how a giant pumpkin and mass consumption of candy led to the partnership. According to Midnight City’s press release, Costume Quest 2 will feature returning heroes Wren and Reynold, who must once again protect Auburn Pines from monsters and other horrors.
Costume Quest was developed as a result of Double Fine’s first Amnesia Fortnight, which took place while Brutal Legend‘s future was up in the air. Though it was released in 2010, Double Fine only regained the rights to Costume Quest last year.
Costume Quest 2 will be out around Halloween 2014 for PC and an unspecified number of consoles.
