Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai Update Goes Live

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Applies quite a few improvements

Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai is the latest 3DS eShop title from Shin'en Multimedia, and was certainly eagerly anticipated by fans of the WiiWare original. Although a solid title, there were some aspects that weren't quite on the money, with our review highlighting issues such as the rather slow movement of the main character.

As reported late last year, the developer has been working on an update to resolve issues with some game freezing errors and on certain aspects of gameplay. That update is now live in North America and Europe, with the company reiterating the improvements in the tweet below.

If the eShop doesn't automatically notify you, the update can be found under the "Available Updates" option in "Settings / Other". We'll check it out and see what changes it makes; let us know what you think of these gameplay tweaks in the comments below.

Sweet.. Good job Shin`en, I`ll delete my saved data and start again. I liked this from the start but it`s really good you guys took on the feedback about some of the problems with the game. The big thing for me was the black screen but looking forward to playing with a faster Jett. Hope Jett III will carry on from the very cool last cloud assault level. Jett III - Cloud Asssault would be great. I hope this also gets a revised review on Nintendolife and becomes a classic eshop title.

The changes make the game a whole lot more enjoyable experience. It should be rereviewed with the updated stuff. I'm sure more people would get it to support Shinen if NLife staff gave the review treatment all over again.

Cool, I'll give it a try. I found the game to be quite boring, and the slow pace was one of the reasons. Let's see if this actually fixes that.

Has there been more than one update ? . I already downloaded an update probably two days ago.



Garo said:

The faster movement really makes a difference. The game is much more enjoyable now.



XFsWorld said:

Yeah I've updated it a few days ago and the faster movement makes the game easier to play. I just still hate when I get hit by an enemy I wobble away.

@ikki5 I think the endless runner parts of NSMB2 is pretty much exactly how all the levels should be played anyway.

@Zach777 They never do that. Doesn't make sense either as it implied that Mutant Mudds is one of the best games on the 3DS but it totally isn't and the better Wii U version got a more reasonable score.

Would love to see an updated review on this. Have been on the fence about getting this for a long time.

I've been on the fence about getting this game. Not because of issues in the game but more about game backlog. If I ever get caught up I definitely will get this. I'm getting really picky now with what I download. There is just too much good stuff

A good developer listens to fans and gamers of their games. Shin'en is one of those. Great to see these updates coming in even for 3DS games.

I'm loving Nano Assault Neo right now on my Wii U, really great little game with fast paced action and great visuals. Can't wait for the Fast Racing Neo. The world needs a new Wipeout style game and this will be it.
