The original Spelunky is a roguelike and platformer that was released in 2008, and one of the first titles to combine both elements. It originally launched for PC and was later ported to Xbox Live Arcade in 2012, as well as for PlayStation 4 in 2014. The sequel, Spelunky 2, was released for PlayStation 4 and PC. Despite the first title receiving an Xbox release, neither has been confirmed for Xbox One as of now.

Though many fans requested for both games to be revealed during the recent Nintendo Indie World presentation, it was noticeably absent and only received a confirmation now. Other indie titles that were announced during the Direct include Tetris Effect: Connected, Loop Hero, and Axiom Verge 2, among others.
