Senko no Ronde 2 Launches September 7 for PS4 and PC

Degica Games and developers Chara-Ani and G.rev have announced the release date for Senko no Ronde 2.

The PlayStation 4 and PC shooter-fighter hybrid will launch on September 7th. Featured above, you can view the game’s opening movie.

The game will be available via retail and the PlayStation Store on PlayStation 4, with planned limited physical editions as well.

Here’s a first look at gameplay within the sequel:

Here’s a rundown on the game, via its Steam page:


Originally released in Japanese arcades in 2005, the Senko no Ronde series provides an unique mix of both the shooting and fighting genres, mixing them into a one-on-one action game where two Rounder (mecha) pilots face off against one another in a veritable ballet of bullets and battling.

Senko no Ronde 2 is a reboot of the 2010 game Senko no Ronde DUO, a faster, further refined follow up to WarTech, the only English language release in the series.

Players take control of a Rounder and utilize long ranged attacks alongside melee assaults to defeat their opponent. Shields and the all-important dash can be used in defense, with barrage attacks and the all mighty B.O.S.S. attack on hand to rain destruction on the battle field.

Featuring an involved storyline, more characters and rounders, with local battles, online matching and more!

And with Zuntata alumni, Yasuhisa ‘Yack.’ Watanabe on board, you know the soundtrack is going to be a treat too.


Finally, if you’re at this year’s BitSummit in Kyoto, the game will be playable on the showfloor.

    Reminds me of Touhou Bullet Ballet. I enjoyed the game, but I still somewhat suck at bullet hells.

    If its previewed on steam I’m guessing there’ll be a western release?

    THese aren’t bullet hells, and it should remind you as this is what that game was based on
