Dyna Brothers 2 (ダイナブラザーズ2) is the sequel to Dyna Brothers, and is a Sega Mega Drive simulation game released exclusively in Japan.

It plays very much like the first game in the series, but adds a variety of new content such as different modes and the addition of a pterodactyl character named Putera (プテラ).

CRI also released an expanded version on the Japanese Sega Channel, Dyna Brothers 2: Sega Channel Special (ダイナブラザーズ2スペシャル). This version has since been rereleased on the Japanese Virtual Console and the Japanese Mega Drive Mini, the former from which the ROM comes from. Whether or not there was a North American release as such is unknown.


Modes of Play

Renshuu Mode -- Tutorial mode. Player is taken through different scenarios and asked to complete certain tasks for each stage. Basic gameplay concepts are taught as a result.

Story Mode -- Follows the game's main narrative with specific goals.

Original Mode -- Regular mode with no cut-scenes or specific goals. Player must win using general victory tactics as in the first Dyna Brothers.

Taiketsu Mode -- Two-player battle. Using commands is done as in single-player mode, but with a limited amount of time to choose between each turn. View switches between each player's screen as turns are taken.
