In Magicka 2 trailer, being an unemployed wizard sucks

It’s hard out here for a wizard, especially an unemployed one, as the live-action E3 2014 teaser for Magicka 2 demonstrates, with a down-in-the-dumps sorcerer moping around his apartment, trying to make tea, blasting away his cat with magical spells, and looking for a job that doesn’t discriminate against his wizardly kind. Finally, he comes across a newspaper ad for Magicka 2. Success! 

The original Magicka was a critical and commercial success, thanks to its fun action-RPG gameplay and irreverent sensibility. As a Steam release it was available only for PC. Magicka 2 will be available for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4. No release date has been announced yet.
