Goku War: Shin Budokai 2 is a fighting game with cel-shaded graphics to mirror the look and feel of the combat in the Warriors series. In order to experience the full potential of the game, a Memory Card is required to obtain and edit skills, and create custom characters.
Goku War 2 improves upon the first installment by adding an all-new single player mode, new characters and explosive attacks. Experience the new match-ups, character cameos and challenging missions in the World. All of the characters were already unlocked, but the capsules were preset.
The game's features include a tournament stage, versus mode, and an item shop. The story mode in the game is known as Warriors, and plays like a board game as the player assembles a team of Z-fighters to challenge the various enemies in the series starting from the Saiyan up to the final Kid Buu. The game has a total of 31 playable characters including fusions of different fighters, and Buu's various forms.
[New features] While the first game uses a chapter interface to guide the player through the sagas, Warriors 2 uses a much different interactive game board. Each game board represents a different saga of the series.
[Skills] As in Warriors 1, each character is able to be customized by using a 7-slot skill tray. Players may choose up to 7 skills and give them to a fighter.
