The World Heroes 2 wiki last edited by Mento on 05/01/15 12:31PM View full history


World Heroes 2 is a 2D fighting game developed by ADK and published by SNK for the Neo Geo. It is a direct sequel to World Heroes, adding six new playable characters and one new boss. Death Match mode from the previous game received an overhaul, adding and removing obstacles (mine fields, moving saws, laser beams, slippery floors, and smaller arenas) while completely changing the lifebar system to one large tug-of-war lifebar. Gameplay additions include taunting (standing far back while pressing the throw button), throw reversals (throwing at the moment you're being grabbed, can cause "throw battles") and projectile reflection (blocking at the very moment a projectile reaches you, similar to the Just Defend system of Garou: Mark of the Wolves).

The game was ported to the SNES and TurboGrafx CD by Takara. The original version of the game was released on the Neo Geo CD with an arranged soundtrack and released on the World Heroes Anthology compilation for the PlayStation 2.
