Already confirmed for PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, PC and Google Stadia, Dotemu have today confirmed that Windjammers will be coming to Xbox, allowing gamers on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S the chance to take in some seriously fiery matches. Oh, and it’ll be hitting Game Pass too.
A sequel to 1994’s Windjammers, Windjammers 2 will now be releasing on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and on Xbox Game Pass, as well as the previously confirmed options of PS4, PS5, Switch, Stadia and PC. And to keep things even more interesting, two more show-stealing competitors have been revealed in the latest gameplay trailer.
Dropping from publisher and developer Dotemu – they behind the likes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, Metal Slug Tactics, Streets of Rage 4 – Windjammers 2 will storm courts with full crossplay support between the PC and Xbox versions of the game, as well as cross gen play between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 competitors.
Alongside the new Xbox announcement, a nifty little trailer reveals the all-new Sammy Ho, a gardener and budding star athlete hailing from China. Sammy’s mid-range agility and powerful throws make him a dangerous rival, and his special move channels a ferocious dragon’s energy for blistering shots on goal. Returning contender Jordi Costa is also bringing his court-crossing slides and mighty strength back into the action. You can watch both Jordi and Sammy go all out in today’s trailer below.
If you’re unaware, as 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. It’s all powered rather fluidly with hand-drawn 2D animation which converts the intense energy and emotion of matches into a beautiful spectacle, making Windjammers 2 a joy to both play and watch.
Give that trailer a watch.
