New trailer showcases new special throws, characters, and updated hand-drawn visuals
At long last, DotEmu has finally released the first gameplay trailer for their upcoming competitive frisbee-flinger, Windjammers 2.
The footage, which is worth noting mentions the game is in its alpha state, offers a solid first look at this high-energy sequel to the hit Neo Geo game. Here we get a fresh look at the game’s over-the-top trick shots, new hand-drawn visuals and colorful cast of competitors. Check it out below:
Personally, I’m not sure if I’m sold on the new aesthetic approach DotEmu is taking with the game. Then again, as someone who still plays the Neo Geo CD and MVS versions of the game on a weekly basis, I might be a little biased. Still, you can’t say Windjammers 2 doesn’t look to keep the frantic spirit of the original game alive based on what we’ve seen so far.
Windjammers 2 is currently slated to release on the PlayStation 4 and Switch later this year. So, what do you think of the look of this long-awaited sequel to one of the Neo Geo’s most beloved hidden gems? Sound off in the comments and let us know.
