Update: We've got a date! Windjammers 2 hits Xbox Game Pass at launch on January 20th, 2022.
Original story (17th Nov, 2021): Having previously been confirmed for PS4, PC, PS5, Switch and Stadia, Dotemu has now announced that Windjammers 2 will also hit Microsoft's Xbox consoles via Game Pass at launch.
The game, a sequel to 1994's cult classic, Windjammers, also got itself a nifty new trailer that reveals two new playable stars, China's Sammy Ho and the Spaniard Jordi Costa.
The trailer shows off some high-speed Windjammers action that really seems to absolutely nail the 1990's aesthetic and vibe of the original, and we particularly love the arcade-perfect announcer audio. This is looking like some super-slick and colourful action and, after the delights of the recent Street of Rage 4, we have every faith that Dotemu have got another awesome game on their hands here that we cannot wait to check out.
According to the game's official site:
Windjammers 2 will combine everything fans love about the classic title with entirely hand-drawn 2D animations to create the ultimate windjamming experience. The coming sequel will bring new stages and players, surprising and amazing new power moves and enhanced gameplay mechanics!
You can check out the brand new trailer in all its glory below and, although we don't have an exact confirmed release date just yet, we've got our fingers crossed this one isn't too far off as it's still slated for sometime in 2021.
Looking forward to trying Windjammers 2 on Xbox Game Pass in January? Let us know down below.
