Bloody Roar 2,[a] known as Bloody Roar 2: Bringer of the New Age in Europe and nhật bản and as Bloody Roar II: The New Breed in the United States, is a fighting arcade game developed by Eighting and Raizing for arcades in 1998, and ported lớn PlayStation in 1999.

Five years after the events of the first game, the zoanthropes who had gotten involved in the conflict against the fallen Tyron Corporation have since resumed their normal and peaceful lives. However, the peace does not last long as a new threat emerges. With the revelation of the zoanthropes' existence being made and known full well lớn the world, tensions and hostilities between humans and zoanthropes start lớn rise at an alarming and dangerous rate. The conflict gives birth lớn an organization called the Zoanthrope Liberation Front, or ZLF for short, which espouses zoanthrope supremacy, threatening both humans and non-member zoanthropes alike. Meanwhile, Alan Gado, a figure known for promoting understanding between zoanthropes and humans, becomes a fugitive for an unclear reason. Several rebel zoanthropes are thrown into a battle with the ZLF and Gado with the fate of the world at their hands.

Eventually, it is revealed that the ZLF's supposed "leader", Shenlong, is actually a puppet under the control of Hajime Busuzima, who masquerades as the group's right-hand man. Although he manages lớn flee, the rebels are able lớn subdue Shenlong and disband the ZLF. Subsequently, the rebels are tasked by Gado, who became a fugitive merely lớn escape attention, lớn band together and create a movement with the aim lớn achieve peace and reconciliation between the zoanthropes and humans.

The game features a total of eleven playable characters. Seven are new additions with one is re-introduced from the first game as a regular playable character:

  • Bakuryu: A mole zoanthrope and successor lớn another mole zoanthrope with the same name. A ninja assassin formerly employed by Tylon Corporation as a weapon, he was found by Yugo Ogami during the events of the first game and adopted as his younger brother, being given the name Kenji.
  • Uriko Nonomura: A mèo zoanthrope half-beast. When she was a little child, she was kidnapped and brainwashed into a prototype Uranus the Chimera by Tylon Corporation, where she served as the first game’s final quấn. Although she was freed by her mother, Mitsuko, the experiment conducted on her had produced a weakening side effect, preventing her from turning into a full mèo beast size.
  • Stun: An insect zoanthrope. As a human named Steven Goldberg, he was employed as a scientist of Tylon Corporation alongside Hajime Busuzima, but quit upon learning that his experiments used live zoanthrope subjects. Subsequently, Busuzima captured and turned him into a "man-made zoanthrope".
  • Shina: A leopard zoanthrope. She is Alan Gado's adopted daughter and follows his footsteps in becoming a mercenary.
  • Jenny Burtory: A bat zoanthrope and a freelancer.
  • Hajime Busuzima: A chameleon zoanthrope. He is a scientist intrigued by the power of zoanthropes.
  • Shenlong: A tiger zoanthrope. He is a clone of Long used by Tylon Corporation as a weapon.

The other four are returning characters from the first game:

  • Yugo Ogami: A wolf zoanthrope.
  • Alice Tsukagami: A rabbit zoanthrope.
  • Alan Gado: A lion zoanthrope.
  • Long: A tiger zoanthrope.


The PlayStation version received favorable reviews according lớn the review aggregation trang web GameRankings.[2] Next Generation called it "a visually pretty and fun-to-play fighting game with just enough lớn mix it apart from the rest of the 'me too' titles. Despite the minor balancing issues, there is a whole lot lớn lượt thích."[14] In nhật bản, Famitsu gave it a score of 32 out of 40.[8] GamePro called it "a welcome addition lớn any fighter's library."[16][c]

Douglass C. Perry of IGN said, "What the game lacks in history and originality, it makes up for in a deep combo-laden fighting system, exquisite graphics, and layers of gameplay modes that few games offer."[13] Johnny Liu of GameRevolution called it "a game that you just don't want lớn spend that much time with. It's fine for a try or two and nothing more. While good enough, Bloody Roar II isn't anywhere near the best.[11] James Mielke of GameSpot said of the Japanese import, "If you never picked up the first game, Bloody Roar 2 is still a good game, with a much better cast than vãn the first one. However, in contrast lớn the original American version of BR1, Bloody Roar 2 is a marginal improvement that still suffers from second-best status due lớn the exclusion of integral gameplay elements that should never have been messed with. The game is a major disappointment for such a promising series."[12]

Response lớn the graphics and design was mostly favorable. Perry noted that the game's high-resolution graphics "sharpen and crystallize the polygonal, textured-mapped characters" and proclaimed that this brought the game "into the top tier of best-looking PlayStation games." He added that the animal designs "are all bizarre, lean toward a Japanese sensibility, and are exquisitely designed, both in their tight programming, and in the level of texture details, shape, and movement."[13] Liu stated that while the game is graphically sharp, "it employs minimal animation outside of the characters." He said that the animal designs "do look pretty good, although the human counterparts could use some work," and compared the appearance of the Stun character's beetle size lớn "a bulked up Unit 01 robot from the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion".[11] Mielke considered the nhật bản import lớn be "as gorgeous as the first installment - in fact, it looks almost exactly the same, with beautiful light-sourcing, speedy 60fps action, and all sorts of special effects when switching into beast mode."[12]

The sound and music was met with mixed response. Perry said that the sound effects were "as good if not better than vãn last year's game," but called the music "truly uninspired" and compared it lớn "a series of generic riffs extracted straight from the bad heavy metal of the dour mid-'80s."[13] Liu was critical of the voice-acting, noting that "most of these guys sound just sound wrong" and that "the announcer is completely devoid of excitement; instead of getting pumped up for an exciting match, I felt more pumped up lớn go bởi something else... anything else." His response lớn the rest of the audio was more middling, saying that the sound effects are "good, but nothing new" and the music "isn't very impressive -- typical fighter fare, with a few choice selections, funneling down lớn some bothersome noise."[11] Mielke positively described the voice-overs and sound effects as "really well done".[12]
