Between Streets of Rage 4 and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, Dotemu have been hot on the scene with retro revivals lately. Currently, the developer is working on a sequel to the 1994 Neo Geo sports game, Windjammers, and while fans of the original have been waiting patiently for Windjammers 2 since 2019, Dotemu has some new details to share ahead of its release later this year on PC, Switch, and Stadia.
Dotemu have revealed new gameplay footage outlining the game’s Arcade Mode. Fans will conquer championships in solo play, and each athlete has their own story, each coming with personalized endings. That includes Steve Miller, one of Windjammers‘ original competitors, who’s confirmed to be returning.
In a press release accompanying the gameplay video, Dotemu outlined further improvements coming to Windjammers 2. Online multiplayer will implement rollback netcode, often considered the smoothest means of providing online play.
If you’re excited to try it now, PC players can still access the game’s Steam demo until February 9. Stay tuned to GameSkinny as we learn more about this anticipated sequel.
