Game play is essentially the same, including vertical scrolling, enemy targets with power-ups, and special weapons for each plane. However, the feel of the game is quite different due to its better graphics, more humorous storyline, and wider range of characters.

Sonic Wings 2 (ソニックウィングス2, Sonikkū~ingusu 2), known as Aero Fighters 2 in the west, is a vertically scrolling shooter originally released in 1994 by Video System.

Overview

Sonic Wings 2 features a few of the same basic elements present in the original Sonic Wings: a team of international pilots fighting an alien enemy. Game play is essentially the same, including vertical scrolling, enemy targets with power-ups, and special weapons for each plane. However, the feel of the game is quite different due to its better graphics, more humorous storyline, and wider range of characters. The game was also released in the USA for the Neo-Geo and Neo-Geo CD under the name Aero Fighters 2.

While the player may still choose from among eight pilots, two-player mode is quite different from that in Sonic Wings: the second player may select from any of the other pilots instead of being forced to use the pilot from the same country as player one. Each pairing of pilots has its own ending sequence, in addition to the eight sequences for the individual pilots.

Some minor bosses have changed from the original Sonic Wings, as have the final bosses: Osaru is now only a minor boss in the "Another Dimension" stage of the game, appearing before the player encounters Lar, Tenukie Chaudo, or Manbou. Finally, the gameplay includes two short "bonus levels" without final bosses, in which the player is constantly bombarded with easily destructible enemy craft; each enemy produces a power-up when defeated.
