PAX South 2020 – First Look – Windjammers 2

Articles Events News

The long-awaited squeal of a throwback arcade classic is almost upon us. Windjammers 2 is the sequel to the 1994 smash hit found in NEO Geo cabinets. Let’s take a look at Dotemu’s latest outing!

A Return to form

Windjammers is a fast-paced disc throwing game. If you have never played the original think Frisbee Soccer jacked up to 11. The goal of the game is to get the most points. There are several ways to score. Either by getting the disc into the goal, which is worth 3 or 5 points or by having your opponent drop the disc on their side of the net. The game looks to combine everything the fans loved from the original game with some gorgeous hand-drawn 2D graphics. Windjammers 2 will bring new stages and players, surprising and amazing new power moves and enhanced gameplay mechanics. The game is set to release later in 2020 for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia.

Windjammers is full of that classic style that made the first game great. From what I have seen and played the fast-paced gameplay will keep people on their toes. Playing with a buddy is where the game truly shines. I loved the powered-up moves that players of Street Fighter or Fatal Fury will easily recognize. They are ridiculously over the top and actually stopping one from scoring on you is a victory in itself. I look forward to getting my hands on this game when it releases for the Switch.
