PARIS (Nov. 17, 2021) - Publisher and developer Dotemu (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, Metal Slug Tactics, Streets of Rage 4) today announce that Windjammers 2 will storm courts on Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass for console & PC in addition to its matches slated for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia. Windjammers 2 will also support crossplay between the PC and Xbox versions of the game, as well as crossgen play between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 competitors.
 
Today’s announcement 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; watch both Jordi and Sammy go all out in today’s trailer: https://youtu.be/-P-tT_jky4U
 
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.
