Upcoming mech fighting game Override 2: Super Mech League will have a playable character from the famous Ultraman series right at launch.
This Ultraman crossover was announced back in September and developer Modus Studios Brazil revealed that four characters from the Ultraman Netflix series would be added to the game, but we were not informed how or when. We now know that one character will be available at launch, with the other three still a mystery.
Override 2 will also launch with 20 original mechs. Many will return from the first 2018 game, but there will also be some new ones available too.
Back to Ultraman and the four announced characters are: Shinjiro Hayata (Ultraman), Bemular, Dan Moroboshi (Ultraman Suit ver7) and Black King. Right now we’re again in the dark as to which of these four will be available at launch.
This has been announced by way of a video (embedded below) in which we get some developer commentary about this sequel.
Customisation of your mech is shaping up to interesting but we’re not shown any of it just yet. Instead we learn that playing the singleplayer will grant coins which can be used to change how your mech looks.
In our interview with Modus Studios Brazil we learned that customisation will not be tied to real world money in any way, so these coins you earn by playing are rather important for those who hate being stuck with the default skins.
From this video we also learn that combat has been sped up as per player feedback who felt that things were a bit too slow in the 2018 game. This faster combat will also take place in eight different arenas.
Override 2: Super Mech League launches on 22nd December 2020 on PC and just about every console: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
To access the Ultraman character at launch and the other three planned for later you will need to buy the more expensive Ultraman Deluxe Edition of the game, the box art of which you can see in the header image above.
