Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai

Shin’en has prepared an update for Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai, and it’s out now in both North America and Europe.

The patch is more than just a means to address bugs. Shin’en has sped up character movement, improved the game’s controls, and reduced the impact upon taking damage.

Shin’en tweeted the update news earlier today:


Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai’s first update isn’t too far off, Shin’en says. The developer wrote on Twitter yesterday that it’s only a matter of days before the patch goes live.

The message reads:


Shin’en is currently preparing a new update for Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai. Items addressed include:

  • The main character is now faster and more agile
  • Backlash on enemy contact has been reduced
  • ‘Black screen’ issue on Game Over screen fixed
  • ‘Mirror World’ missing Secret fixed

Jett Rocket II’s patch has already been submitted, so we should be seeing it out soon.


Remember how the original Jett Rocket teased a sequel? Now we’re seeing similar with Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai.

Released amidst a flurry of absolutely no hype or promotion– courtesy of Nintendo, it seems– Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai popped onto the 3DS eShop as the sequel to a well-loved (if perhaps a bit archaic) WiiWare title that bears the same franchise name. It’s billed as a platformer– and that it is– but it’s one that can’t seem to choose between 3D and 2D, swapping between the two as though it’s a motorcyclist in the busy lanes of a Los Angeles highway. The game is certainly trying to take you somewhere, and doesn’t seem afraid to take its own route to get there– but is the trip worth the price?

Jack says that this was a pretty good episode, and I think I agree! Lots of talk about Super Mario 3D World and how Mario games should be or are judged, some talk of Mighty Switch Force 2, Ocarina of Time, Jett Rocket II, and Laura’s new 3DS XL during what we played, and then a whole heaping pile of listener mail rounds out the show. So far so good!
