Mega Man Star Force 2 for NDS, the second game in the Mega Man Star Force series, will offer an updated battle system with new Battle Cards and new foes to confront. Mega Man Star Force 2 will be released in two versions, Zerker X Ninja or Zerker X Saurian with players able to choose between Zerker, Ninja or Saurian dependent on which version they opt for.
Each of the three variants – Zerker, Ninja and Saurian – offers its own distinct Mega Man transformations with unique, special attributes and abilities. Players can harness the spirit of an ancient species known as Tribe and transform or ‘tribe on’ into three different forms – Elec (electric) Zerker wields a large sword imbued with the power of lightning; Wood Ninja can throw a huge Shinobi star and move at great speed while Fire Saurian is able to reduce enemies to smouldering pieces with a swipe of his fiery fist.
Developed by the team behind the popular MegaMan Battle Network series, Mega Man Star Force 2 continues two months after the previous game left off. Geo Stelar and crew return to battle a host of new enemies, the UMA (unidentified animated beings) and a rival character “Rogue”. They must also confront a mysterious organization that plots the revival of the ancient “Mu” civilization by unleashing the sinister and primeval force of “OOPArt”. It’s up to Geo and his virus-busting buddy, Omega-Xis, to thwart this latest threat.
Mega Man Star Force 2 blends a unique formula of RPG exploration elements with fast-paced action, as players travel and battle between coexisting worlds, the physical world and the virtual Wave World, to unravel the mystery around this new troublemaker. Players will encounter enemies in the virtual Wave World and battle them on three-by-five battle grids with their Battle Card deck. Mega Man Star Force 2 also adds an upgraded “Transer” system.
Activating the communications application via the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection or the Wireless LAN allows players to connect with in-game friends regardless of their location, add new friends to their network to create a “Brother Band” network, where they can share cards, status upgrades, and even help each other to perform, upgraded transformations. The wireless match application via the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection is also available for Mega Man Star Force 2 which allows players to test their skills against friends regardless of their location.
Mega Man Star Force 2 is currently scheduled for release this autumn
