Sorry to ask, but why is it called 'Battle Squadron 2'? Neither the graphics nor that snippet of the story show any relation.

Ahh let me clarify on it. There is a more indepth story that will explain it more in detail going from ships to characters

The explosion looks a lot like something I have seen in Battle Squadron, thus more colors etc.

Okay, just wondered how the Galax Lunar HQ became the 'Earth Defense Fleet' (I assume you're aiming for a younger audience this time) and why there's a Lawnmover Man flying on the screen. I'll stay tuned to read the big enlightenment

I do not know where the Galax Lunar HQ is coming from but in Battle Squadron the Amiga game there is something called Earth Defence Fleet and appears also in the new game

Galax Lunar HQ is the 'From' in the mission briefing in the manual. You're right it's in the outro of Batlle Squadron. Guess you get the idea about that blue thingy instead of a spaceship from the other comments here

All you have to do now is make a game like [ Show youtube player ] in the Battle Squadron universe to truly kill the franchise.

At least they're writing new games, what are you doing?
Let's see first how it play before shooting at them...Based on their previous work I see no reason why they'll make a bad game.

Tough crowd huh it's not easy getting the approval of the die-hard Amiga nostalgics.

It's a bit early to judge the game when it's still in development and only a single screenshot has been posted.

Tough crowd indeed, man

So who wants to have a go at making some new amiga games then?

The board has the collective skill to do that, I suspect most folks probably can't be arsed or don't have time though
