MEGA
MAN STAR FORCE 2 FOR NINTENDO DS ARRIVES AT RETAIL


Two Versions, Double the Fun!


Capcom today announced that Mega Man Star Force™ 2 for Nintendo DS™ is now
available at retail. The second game in the Mega Man Star Force™ series will
offer an updated battle system with new Battle Cards and diabolical enemies.
Mega Man Star Force 2 will have two versions: Zerker X Ninja and Zerker X
Saurian. Mega Man Star Force 2 is rated E10+ for everyone 10 and older and
carries a suggested retail price of $29.99.

Developed
by the team behind the popular MegaMan Battle Network® series, Mega Man Star
Force 2 continues two months after the previous game left off. Geo Stelar and
crew return to battle a whole host of UMA’s (unidentified animated beings) and a
new rival character called “Rogue.” Amidst this new conflict, a mysterious
organization emerges with plans to revive the ancient civilization of “Mu” by
utilizing the force of an ancient heritage “OOPArt.” It’s up to Geo and his
virus-busting buddy, Omega-Xis, to thwart this latest threat.

Each of
the three variants – Zerker, Ninja and Saurian – offers its own distinct Mega
Man transformations with unique special attributes and abilities. Players can
harness the spirit of an ancient species known as “Tribe” and transform or
“tribe on” into three different forms: Elec Zerker wields a large sword imbued
with the power of lightning; Wood Ninja can throw a huge Shinobi Star and move
at great speed; Fire Saurian reduces enemies to smoldering pieces with a swipe
of his fiery fist.

Mega Man
Star Force 2 blends a unique formula of RPG exploration elements with fast-paced
action, as players travel and battle between the coexisting physical and virtual
Wave World. While seeking to unravel the mystery around the appearance of new
troublemakers, players will encounter enemies in the virtual Wave World and
battle them on three-by-five battle grids with their Battle Card deck. Mega Man
Star Force 2 also adds an upgraded “Transer” system.


Activating the communications application via the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection or
local wireless allows players to connect with in-game friends regardless of
their location. Once connected, players can add new friends to their network to
create a “Brother Band” network where they can share cards, status upgrades, and
even help each other to perform upgraded transformations. Wireless match
application via the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection is also available for Mega Man
Star Force 2 which allows players to test their skills against friends across
the internet.
