ULTRAMAN Characters Coming to Override 2: Super Mech League
Publisher Modus Games and developer Modus Studios Brazil have announced an ULTRAMAN Deluxe Edition for their upcoming mech fighting game, Override 2: Super Mech League.
This edition will include several characters from Netflix's ULTRAMAN anime series (based on the manga series of the same name) through an "UlLTRAMAN Season Pass." Additionally, there will also be Ultraman themed cosmetic items available.
The four ULTRAMAN characters that will be playable include the heroes:
- Shinjiro Hayata, the son of the original Ultraman who combines his Ultraman factor gene with the Ultraman suit to use it effectively
- Dan Moroboshi, who does not have the Ultraman factor but uses his combat prowess to effectively utilize the Seven suit in combat,
- The mysterious alien villain Bemular
- The monstrous kaiju known as Black King
The ULTRAMAN anime series first premiered on Netflix on April 1, 2019, with the English dub featuring Josh Hutcherson (Hunger Games, Future Man) as Shinjiro Hayata. It serves as a direct sequel to the original 1966 Ultraman series.
Interestingly enough, characters from the ULTRAMAN anime series do not grow giant as they would in other various Ultraman series. A second season is planned to premiere some time in 2021 and a teaser trailer was released on July 5, teasing the appearance of Ultraman Taro, based on the Ultraman character and series of the same name.
The first Override game, Override: Mech City Brawl, was released for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on December 3, 2018. It featured a co-op mechanic where up to four friends could pilot one giant mech together.
Override 2 will feature 20 playable robots, including a few new ones, with unique abilities, skill sets, and ultimate moves. The game will have a career mode, ranked matches, hazardous arenas with dynamic elements, upgraded game modes, and new and improved match types including one-versus-one, two-versus-two, free-for-all, Xenoswarm, King of the Hill, and more. There will also be expansive customizations for any mech you choose.
Override 2: Super Mech League is planned for a Holiday 2020 launch on PC (Steam), PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
