Press release:
PARIS (Feb. 5, 2021).
Publisher and developer Dotemu ( “Streets of Rage 4”, “Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap” ) today shared a first look at Windjammers 2’s overhauled Arcade Mode while also confirming the renowned Steve Miller’s return to the court via a new gameplay trailer.

Windjammers 2 ’s Arcade Mode allows superstars to conquer championships while playing solo, offering up a gauntlet of matches against AI opponents as well as optional challenges, which reward versatile competitors able to adapt their playstyles on the fly.

Strong performances will earn credits, which can save players from falling out of a tournament should they ever lose a match. Arcade Mode is a great starting point for beginners and brings the world of Windjammers to life, adding color to each athlete’s story through personalized endings after they rise through the ranks and dominate rivals. See how Arcade Mode’s tournaments unfold by watching the trailer.

Today’s video also confirms the return of Steve Miller, an agile power disc-flinging icon who stands as a balanced choice for newcomers and Windjammers veterans alike. Although Steve’s throws range on the weaker side of the roster, he’s agile and a natural at pulling off reversals along with tricky curved shots.

Following extensive feedback from the passionate Windjammers community, Dotemu is also pleased to confirm Windjammers 2 will implement rollback netcode, a technique often viewed as the best option for providing smooth online play for games built around swift, precise action.

Fans can experience the difference this makes in the heat of their own matches by jumping into Windjammers 2 ’s rollback-incorporating Steam Game Festival demo, which is available until Feb. 9.

An evolution of the original arcade classic, Windjammers 2 ’s radical power disc-flinging showdowns pair approachable mechanics with subtle depth, offering up an accessible competitive sport that’s perfect for casual rounds as well as high-stakes tournaments.

Fluidly hand-drawn 2D animation converts the intense energy and emotion of matches into a beautiful spectacle, making Windjammers 2 a joy to both play and watch.
