A hidden team comprised of a fivepiece mariachi band, two eskimos, a giant stoat, a snowman, a giant turtle and a bizarre microscopic lifeform that lives under the arctic ocean magnified hundreds of times.



This particular entry in the series was very popular in arcades across the globe, and has therefore been re-released numerous times with minor improvements. Virtua Striker 2 Version '98 and Virtua Striker 2 Version '99 (and a minor revision, Virtua Striker 2 Version '99.1) were released as Sega Model 3 arcade updates, while Virtua Striker 2 Ver. 2000 was released for the Sega NAOMI arcade platform.

The original Virtua Striker 2 was set for release for the Sega Dreamcast in November 1998, being one of the first titles announced for the system. It was subsequently revised and replaced with Virtua Striker 2 Ver. 2000.1. In North America, the this version retains the simple Virtua Striker 2 name, but is due to its increased number of features, is not considered by Sega Retro to be the same game as this one.
