Mega Man brings back fond memories for most “mature” gamers, so today’s news that Capcom has shipped Mega Man Star Force 2 for the Nintendo DS is music to a gaming generation’s ears.
Mega Man Star Force 2 for DS has an updated battle system with new Battle Cards, as well as a few new enemies.
Mega Man Star Force 2 picks up two months where the original game left off. Geo Stelar and crew return to battle a whole host of enemies and a new rival called Rogue. Meanwhile, a mysterious organization emerges with plans to revive the ancient civilization of Mu through an ancient heritage OOPArt.
Rather than rely on the “core” Mega Man abilities from years back, players can harness the spirit of an ancient species known as Tribe and transform into three different forms. The first form, Elec Zerker, wields a large sword imbued with the power of lightning. The second, Wood Ninja, can throw a huge Shinobi Star and move at great speed, while the third form, Fire Saurian, reduces enemies to smoldering pieces with a swipe of his fiery fist.
Mega Man Star Force 2 comes in two flavors: Zerker X Ninja and Zerker X Saurian. Both versions carry a retail price of $29.99.
