Astro Duel 2

Sci-Fi Shooter-Platformer Astro Duel 2 Warps onto Switch and PC March 7th

Battle in epic space dogfights with a platform fighter twist

Wild Rooster, the developer behind popular co-op and competitive games, is back with their latest release – Astro Duel 2. Set to launch on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on Thursday, March 7, 2024, this highly anticipated game is sure to have players on the edge of their seats.

But what sets Astro Duel 2 apart from other arena combat games? For starters, it blurs the line between top-down space shooter and platform fighter, creating a unique and thrilling gaming experience. Plunge into the Wild West of deep space with stunning pixel art graphics and immerse yourself in a crime-ridden collection of planets known as the Echo System. You’ll find yourself in the midst of high octane dogfights and death-defying aerial acrobatics as you battle it out with your opponents.

The game features a variety of elite Nano Fighters for players to choose from, each one with its own unique strengths and abilities. These sleek and powerful vessels are capable of seamlessly transitioning between space and land combat, giving players a completely new and exciting level of gameplay. Whether you prefer melee combat, defensive maneuvers, or heavy firepower, there’s a Nano Fighter for every playstyle.

But Astro Duel 2 goes beyond just space battles. In this game, players can also engage in intense platforming arenas, adding a whole new dimension to the action. With fully-destructible sci-fi cities, futuristic factories, abandoned mines, and sunken temples, the possibilities for epic battles are endless. And with a variety of weapons and items at your disposal, including Laser Beams, Scattershots, Missiles, Shotguns, Rifles, and Grenades, you’ll have everything you need to outsmart and defeat your opponents.

Featuring both competitive and co-op modes, Astro Duel 2 offers endless entertainment for players. Challenge up to six friends in Versus Mode, either locally or through online multiplayer options like Steam Remote Play Together and Parsec. Or, for a more collaborative experience, team up with one or two friends in Bounty Mode, where you’ll take on risky missions to eliminate enemies and earn bounties. And for added excitement, unlock Cash Grab Mode, where teams of anthropomorphic astronauts can compete to defend or steal a top-secret safe.

Rusty Moyher, founder of Wild Rooster, shared his thoughts on the game: “We created Astro Duel as an homage to beloved retro couch multiplayer classics, revamped for a new generation of pilots. With our sequel Astro Duel 2, we wanted to amp up the heart-racing and action with a new element: the ability to transition seamlessly from ship battles to land battles, making the game feel like two exciting experiences in one.”

Astro Duel 2 will be available for the price of $19.99 USD and will be available in multiple languages, including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese – Brazil, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese. Whether you’re a fan of retro classics or a new gamer looking for an adrenaline-fueled experience, Astro Duel 2 is a must-have for your collection.

So mark your calendars for March 7, 2024, and get ready to blast off into an unforgettable adventure with Astro Duel 2.
