The DotEmu and Windjammers Twitter are relatively lively still and there seems to be a decent WJ tournament scene off the back of the rerelease.  

 

Intrigued to see where they go/what they do with this. Wonder if they’ll retain using sprites.

The art style is hideous. What a shame.

 

I wasn't sold on it either. But neither was I when the first footage of the Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap remake was shown. Until I finally got to play it. In the end I think it works. Granted, I'd rather have luscious pixel art, but the style they're using in today's 2D  game updates isn't that bad.

 

 

 

 

Also; did you know the original Neo Geo Windjammers got awarded a paltry 5 by Edgetm back in the day, claiming the game had "nothing particularly outstanding about it". Ouch.

I picked up Windjammers recently and fucking love it (Much prefer the pixel art to the new style shown above). Pity no one is playing online though as im guessing multiplayer is where it really excels.

Are they actually adding anything to the formula?  The footage i've seen so far just looks like an "HD remix" of the original.  Almost doesnt warrant the "2".

 

edit, ahah! Some new characters and moves.  I'll shut my face.

I bought the first one for switch thinking there would be plenty people online. 

 

Nope. Not a soul. 

 

I'm not buying the sequel on switch again for this reason.

Looks good to me. If it’s a proper sequel then there’s no need to deliberately be ‘retro’ in its presentation. Reminds me a bit how SoR4 updated for a sequel, modernise the graphics yet keeping the style in line with the previous game. 
 

New Windjammers! In 2021!  This is going to be banging.
