Indie studio Mad Fellows (@MadFellowsGames) confirmed that Aaero2 will debut this September on Xbox Series X|S, with the Steam release following shortly after. Other platforms are to be added at a later date.

In Aaero2 you take control of a mysterious spacecraft, tracing ribbons of light to release the energy in the music. Encounter strange enemies and giant boss creatures in stunning alien worlds. Unleash devastating missile barrages and rain heavy cannon fire to the beat of the epic soundtrack from Monstercat.

The sequel to the critically acclaimed Aaero (2017), Aaero2 introduces exciting new features, including 2-player co-op and PvP game modes, available both locally on the couch and online. Mad Fellows has partnered with Monstercat, renowned for its genre-diverse music, to deliver an unforgettable soundtrack that elevates the gameplay experience.

One of the most exciting additions to Aaero2 is the introduction of multiplayer modes. Players can now enjoy co-op and PvP gameplay, both locally and online, adding a new layer of excitement and competition to the rhythm rail-shooter.

With the game close to 99% finished, the IndieGOGO fundraiser campaign was more of a way to get fans invested earlier and to allow them to contribute to their next favourite game. Players can still participate in the campaign today to score themselves a discount and get a mention in the credits.

  • Incredible Licensed Soundtrack: Experience an electrifying soundtrack provided by Monstercat, perfectly synchronized with the game's action to keep your adrenaline pumping.

  • Dynamic Multiplayer Modes: Engage in thrilling 2-player co-op and PvP modes, available both locally on the couch and online, adding a fresh layer of excitement and competition.
