Developer Dotemu has released a big free update for Windjammers 2 that adds new playable characters, modes, and more.
Here’s a rundown on the update, plus a new trailer:
Making her debut into the Flying Power Disc Federation is Jamma GX03, an android whose well-balanced power and speed can rival the best on the court. Major sponsor Todemu created Jamma GX03 to combat a drop in audience numbers, but in doing so their creation promises to herald a new era of competition in the prestigious windjamming sport and she’s already showing promise as a fan-favorite.
Also joining the roster is Polish Anna Szalinski, an orphan who grew up in the circus before running away. Honing her skills as a slower but extremely powerful weightlifter, she is determined to win the cup and use her newfound position in order to defend animals and take revenge on the circuses who mistreat them.
Master these new characters in two new modes hitting Windjammers 2 today: Lessons and Practice. Lessons allow jammers to learn all the moves in a How To Play mode, taking deep dives into Movement, Shots (lob, curbed, slap and drop), Jumps and Super Shots. Practice mode lets players jam against a CPU via a plethora of settings including Force service, a range of difficulty levels and more.
Major new online features make their debut in today’s free update – Lobbies and full Crossplay. Join or create a Lobby to play with friends via a password and utilize a variety of settings to create the ultimate frenemy group of jammers. Crossplay allows players on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation jammers to join Steam and Xbox players in online matches.
A note for players on all platforms: Online ranking will be erased and go back to zero with the new features now available, so prestige and glory are now back up for grabs across all territories and platforms.
