Classic arcade sports returns for another round.
Dotemu has announced today that Windjammers 2 will be releasing on PS5 and PS4 in addition to the already announced PC, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia
What’s more is that we’ll all be able to give the game a go before release with the Windjammers 2 Open Beta, taking place from tomorrow, August 11th 2PM BST, through to August 22nd – this is for PS5, PS4, and PC only.
The Open Beta will let testers try out several of the game’s playable characters, including Steve Miller, Biaggi, Sophie de Lys, and Gary Scott, who’s actually returning in the new “How to Play” Windjammers 2 trailer.
The Windjammers 2 Open Beta will include online play on PS5 and PS4, with players being able to go head-to-head in online matches, while on PC, Steam users will be able to play in leagues.
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.
