The new trailer for Windjammers 2, which revealed the inclusion of a new character, Sammy Ho, and old acquaintance Jordi Costa, also brings a very interesting confirmation for PC and Xbox users: Dotemu confirms that the new episode of the series will be immediately available on the Game Pass from day one.
For subscribers to the Microsoft service it will therefore be an excellent shortcut to try the promising arcade sports, a follow-up to the Data East classic originally released in the arcade back in 1994. In addition to the editions for Xbox and PC, the work will also arrive on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia. Not only that: DotEmu confirms that Windjammers 2 will support cross-play between the PC and Xbox versions, as well as offering it also between the PS5 and PS4 editions (among other things, the Open Beta of Windjammers 2 on PS5 took place last August. and PS4), while no plan in this sense seems to be on Switch and Stadia.
Missing at the moment is a precise release date: Windjammers 2 had been postponed to 2021 at the end of 2020, but after one year no confirmation has yet arrived on the launch of the title, which at this point cannot be excluded that may be postponed to 2022, subject to official communications from DotEmu.
