Just a few months after the release of the first Thunder Kid title on console, the sequel has now been confirmed for launch. Coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Thunder Kid II: Null Mission will arrive next month.
The Robot Empire is back, and this time, they’re kidnapping all the humans. Players will take on the role of Thunder Kid once again. This time, they must rescue the hostages and track down the enemy’s mysterious new leader before it’s too late. Take down enemy bots and massive enemies in a retro style designed to be enjoyed by casual players and speedrunners alike.
Like its predecessor, Thunder Kid II: Null Mission is a low-poly 3D run-n’-gun action game controlled from behind the main character. The gameplay shifts the perspective of genre classics and adding bullet hell elements while retaining its hallmark features. You’ll have to run, jump and shoot your way across colorful and varied 3D environments. From caves and swamps to cityscapes and even the skies, all set to an energizing chiptune soundtrack.
Thunder Kid Series
The original title was fairly well received. In our Thunder Kid: Hunt for the Robot Emperor review, Chit Hot stated:
“It’s for gamers of a certain age who revel in facing a challenge, and overcoming it with a combination of analytical skills and dexterity. It’s not like Elden Ring, in which the challenge is overcoming high-powered enemies. Nor is it like Demoniaca: Everlasting Night, wherein you have to balance your skillset against the enemies you’re facing. The challenge is about you and your controller. It’s a question of learning, patience and quick reactions.”Thunder Kid: Hunt for the Robot Emperor review
The sequel, Thunder Kid II: Null Mission, will launch on 15th June, 2022. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Are you looking forward to this sequel? Did you play the first game? Let us know in the comments below!
