Jett Rocket 2 Banner

Jett Rocket II: The Wrath of Taikai was certainly on the radar of many download fans prior to its recent arrival, following on from the impressive original on WiiWare. It blends 2D and 3D levels along with crisp visuals and a rock-solid frame-rate.

We gave this one a 7/10 recommendation in our review, though among issues highlighted were the punishing knock-back when hit by an enemy, while the languid running pace of our hero was noticeable.

To that end Shin'en Multimedia's Manfred Linzner has told us that a patch for the game is currently submitted and awaiting approval, and that it's tackling some of these issues; below are the fixes.

  • 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

Have you picked up Jett Rocket II yet, and if so are you looking forward to these improvements? Let us know in the comments below.
