The sequel to legendary Frisbee flinger Windjammers will arc its way to the PlayStation 4 from 20th January. For those of you who don’t know, this follow-up to the 90s NeoGeo classic is a little like tennis, as you defend one half of a court by catching spinning discs and attempting to fling them past your opponent. It’s fantastic fun, and this long-awaited successor has a similar artstyle to the critically acclaimed Streets of Rage 4.
There’s a great PS Blog post which digs into how the sequel was developed, and is well worth reading if you’re curious about such things. For the rest of you, the headline features include: 10 playable characters and courts, online gameplay, and an “epic” arcade mode with a variety of bonus stages. There’s no word on a price just yet, but we don’t expect it to break the bank – and, honestly, Windjammers is so good that it’d be worth a robbery attempt regardless.
