It was back in January when we first saw the Shock Troopers make the jump to Xbox One as one of the most recent ACA NEOGEO ports. Now though the team are back – are you ready to join the 2nd Squadron?
First released by SNK way back in 1998, ACA NEOGEO Shock Troopers 2nd Squad takes everything that you knew and loved about the first game, and ramps it up a notch or two.
You’ll find that not only do you have the usual attacking options, but vehicles have now been added, along with path choices to allow ‘ultimate freedom’ to the player. It may not be the type of freedom you can find in the very latest blockbusters, but for 1998, it ain’t bad at all.
The usual NEOGEO porting options are also in place, and that means you’ll have the option to mix up the difficulty, alongside spending time trying to place as high up the worldwide leaderboard as you possibly can.
Get yourself over to the Microsoft Store and pick up ACA NEOGEO Shock Troopers 2nd Squad for £6.39 right now.
SHOCK TROOPERS 2nd Squad is a military action game released by SNK in 1998. Four mercenaries have risen up to thwart the ambitions of a massive corporation. In addition to a main attack, weapon, and jump abilities, vehicles have also been added to the gameplay, which together with branching paths give the player the ultimate freedom in choosing how they will take on stages. The “ACA NEOGEO” series has faithfully reproduced many classic NEOGEO masterpieces. Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores. Please enjoy the masterpiece that built a generation for video games.
