Dotemu has just confirmed Windjammers 2 will be flying onto both PlayStation 5 and PS4. This follows on from a report about an open beta client making its way to PSN servers, and now it's all clear: the summery sequel will indeed be coming to Sony's systems.

Writing on the PlayStation Blog, Dotemu CEO Cyrille Imbert says a port to PS5 and PS4 was a "no-brainer" after the reception to the first game. This follow-up builds upon the flying disc-lobbing arcade action with a fresh art style and various new features, and we'll get to sample it for ourselves very soon.

By very soon, we mean tomorrow, 11th August. The aforementioned open beta goes live on both consoles starting tomorrow at 2pm BST, and lasts through to 22nd August, giving you nearly two weeks to take it for a spin. You'll have access to four characters, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, and four stages to play. The above video runs through the basics of how to play Windjammers so you're not going in completely green.

There's no release date for the final version of the game, save for "later this year", but in the meantime, there's this beta to enjoy. Will you be trying out Windjammers 2 on PS5 and PS4? Tell us in the comments section below.
