Gaia Games has announced that Sword & Poker, an inventive mixture of dungeon crawling role-playing and good old fashioned poker, will be receiving a sequel soon.

This critically acclaimed game is a bit like Puzzle Quest or Bookworm Adventures, but instead of matching three gems or spelling words to beat up beasties, you'll deck fantasy monsters with competitive poker hands.

Details of the sequel are relatively sparse, outside of confirming that the single device multiplayer and in depth tutorial function will return.

Sword & Poker 2 will be heading to iPhone and iPod touch soon.
