If they are going for a retro cel shaded look like that trailer I'm SOLD. I just hope they get the gameplay speed right.

EDIT: Also, OG Windjammers to Switch October 23

Are we sure Jeff didn't secretly make this game in his basement? Because that trailer was basically just Windjammers: DBZ x SpeedRacer Super Turbo.

Either way, that trailer was fucking rad.

this is awesome- but the art style will be CRITICAL. i think they need to commit to an aesthetic that evokes NEO GEO sprites and animation, otherwise it won't feel right.

if it's high-res 'arc system works' style sprites...or even 3D- i just don't know, man. although a pixelated-PS1 3D aesthetic (like 'devil daggers') could be rad.

The PC still needs a modern way to play Windjammers with online capabilities, if this is the answer then i'm all fucking for it.

Dave Lang's tweet just made my morning. XD

I mean good or not, who in the world would have ever thought we would be getting a sequel to Wind Jammers all these years later? I mean sure I'm optimistic that it will be good, but regardless it's still nuts!

I'll hold my excitement until I see what gameplay looks like.

So amazing that this is happening though.

Seeing the Montreal Olympic Stadium in a game will never cease to be the funniest shit ever. (that and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, so funny!)

Also let's posts this again the refresh everyone's memory.

I believe it's called "Windjanime".
