The Magical Drop II wiki last edited by mento on 03/18/17 01:24PM View full history


Magical Drop II (known in Japan as Magical Drop 2) is a tile-matching puzzle game developed by Data East and released by SNK for arcades (running Neo Geo MVS hardware) in March 1996.

The sequel to the original Magical Drop (known outside of Japan as Chain Reaction), Magical Drop 2 refines the cutesy art style while adding a larger playfield for the single-player Puzzle mode, new balloon types (including powerful crystal blocks that can be matched with any color balloon), and different stats for all characters (giving them specific advantages with certain colored balloons and overall handicaps).

It was later released in Japan for the Neo Geo AES system in April 19, 1996, and received numerous ports through 1996 in Japan only. These ports include the Neo Geo CD in March 24, Super Famicom on September 20 (published by Data East), and Sega Saturn in September 27 (published by Sega). The original version was also digitally re-released worldwide for the Wii (via Virtual Console) by D4 in 2010.


All six characters (and the final boss) from the original Magical Drop make a return as playable characters. Four new boss characters are added, three of whom can be playable with a cheat code.

  • Fool
  • Star
  • Chariot
  • High Priestess
  • Justice
  • Magician
  • World
  • Devil (sub-boss, playable with cheat code)
  • Strength (sub-boss, playable with cheat code)
  • Empress (final boss, playable with cheat code)
  • B-Pierrot (hidden boss, can only be fought by defeating all other characters without using a continue)
