A new Video was released


it is the opening sequenz ogf the game, 23 MB, havent seen it yet becaus spikes server is SLOW. :(



ok, i whatched it now, it´s no were near as stunning as the intro video of the first game was (in terms of music and cut), but gameplay is more important than the intro video annyway, nice to finaly see some moves fully animated.

how would an American go about getting/playing this game?

Because I assume American retail chains don't sell KoC, nor do American PS2's support foriegn games.

It looks bloody awesome, so...yeah. Do tell.

You need a modchip (that suports booting imports, some of the cheap crap dossen/requiers acrion replay ore such extra) ore a fliptop (ore whatever it´s called) wich are perfectly legal in the US as fare as i remember (otherwise getting a japanes PS2 deffenetly would be legal, but meh, who cares about legal)

I´ll buy my copy at Play Asia.com (very good reliabel shop, order there several times, cheap becaus of no 3 party guys tring to make extra cash)

In the us there are shops like japanvideogames.com and ncsx.com that have Japanes games, but sinc they don´t buy bulk directly from "spike" and they still want to take their break you are usualy of with around 20$ more.

i´ll keep you uptodate wen new videos and such pop up.

I dunno about that one, but i only heard bad things about ps2 boot discs, they only work like 60% of the boots and so you have to start over and over again for minutes sometimes. Gamecube works nicer on that part.

next update of whatever sort is suposed to come around next friday

New Video Released today

KoC2 Promotion Video (thats what they call it)

http://www.spike.co.jp/kc2/gallery/kc2_3_64.wmv ~20mb

i am downloading it right now, spikes server, again, seems to be packed with people downloading something so it´s a bit slow

they also added new pictures

all of them here




i heard it was officialy anounced to come out in august, well i have no source on that so i would not take it for grand.

more news

in the japanes text news on that page it was anouced (so sais muka, a usualy relibell person that lives in japan) that you have a crowd rating after the matches (like in some FPWs) - also there will be a promotion Manager (like in FPW2 for GBA (that was removed by BAM! in the US - EU version for no good reason, basicly like EWR, just not as indeep - but with 3D live matches ^^, yep yep, TEW wassent the first comercial wrestling promotion managing game)

From: Muka | Posted: 6/3/2004 11:04:17 PM | Message Detail

i totally forgot today is the big update. well i will translate cuz exboard ace is gone.

well, beginning at page 5 outline is new. theres a crowd approval rating now. kinda like gameboy audience match i guess. if u fight on the ramp, bleed, and use ur finisher, the crowd rating will be higher.

if u use weak moves, stomping, sleeperhold, dont have much action, u get low rating.

page 6- u guys gonna liek this, match maker mode. kinda like the GBA fire pro running ur own promotion thing, u get # of crowd, their rating, etc u need to put up a good main event, or crowd wont come

last page, yes there is Ref now. a list of ref i dont really know. and ring entrance has items.


atachment = magazin advert

the only way you can get your GameCube involved in a plane that finishes with you plaing this game is selling it (the cube) and invest the monney in a PS2 with modchip/japanes PS2 and the game.

Every other alternative i can think of dos not involve gamecube (unless you want to place a PS2 on your gamecube to play KoC2 "on" your gamecube)

The game is only comming out for PS2 and there is no chans that it will come for gamecube because it´s just to big for the discs (i don´t have the exackt size but this will come on DVD-9 wich neccecerly is more than a gamecube disc could hold annyway) and asides from GBA Spike never deliverd a wrestling game for Nintendo annyway so i would not hold my breath that annything comparebell comes around to soon.

they also added a few new screenshots *points at old link to screenshot gallerys*

C Dubbya Anderson :o

Maztat, how fucking much are those mod chips, i'll give my life for one ¬_¬ Fuck, i'll go to Japan and buy a Japanese PS2 if I have to ¬_¬ Okay, maybe not for both of those, but seriously, how much are the mod chips (Marks out for Kojima and C Dubbya).

i payed like 80Euro for the chip and the shops mechanic to build it in for me

i have the Messiah Chip

i´ed recomend everyone to get an DMS3 at the moment (because it fetures DVD region free and a tool for the official Sony HDD (usualy the HDD detects that you have a modchip and disalowes you using it, this tool turns that of - also the chip has a "stealth mode" so you still can play online (this basicly turns the chip off for the time you want to have it of) sinc the sony modem dos the same than the HDD just that (by now) you cannot change it there)


The problem with mod Chips is that the qualety Ones Coast Monney, but belive me if you realy get into importing (for europeans even more important becaus even fewer games make it from japan over the us to us, asides from the palslowdown and the ugly stroke they sometimes get if they come here) it´s worth having a good one becaus chap stuff that only boots half the timess and/ore requires a bootdisc just gets annoing (i own over 20 original PS2 games by now, more thanhalf of it are US ore Japan Imports, also it alowes you to play DVD-r backups so your orginals can stay unharmed in their Box :shifty:

In other news, for the WWE/US lovers, it looks like D-Lo Brown, Jamal and Bull Buchanen have been adeet to the game, i couldend care less but some people on german boards marked hrd for this so i thought you should knowit as well.

Also they started posting about the original musics from the wrestlers, KoC one had Original Musiks for most of th wrestlers.

Next week is set for another big update, i expect that we finaly get to see gameplay videos, somehow i cannot imagin that the changed a lot on that part but who knowes they almost took 2 years for this sequell thats enough time to reanimate a lot of moves and ad some more flow to the gameplay ect.

looks like we finaly get the first gameplay video with this one (a bit of akiama vs Kobashi) - havent finished the download yet.

some new screens are up to


all of them here


i am checking for brevie translations on




should have pritty exackt info of what thes pages contain very soon

There is a new point system in Survival Road that allows you to purchase hidden items.

There's a feature on the edit mode. Looks like it's been improved a bit. You can make 4 seperate parameters and such for 1 character. This is also the same for CPU logic, costume, name, etc.

THERE ARE NOW RING SECONDS, like in ASPWand VPW. They can interfere in matches, if you don't watch out.

New pictures in the gallery.

New move pics for GYAKU SHINING WIZARD(oh snap...) and Muscle Buster.

that video is friggin' sweet.

the gameplay reminds me a tiny bit of LoW, but it looks MUCH better. I'm getting this game.

When does it come out? Or is it out?

It comes out the end of August (japan only)

The gameplay is different than LoWs wirred combination system (at least it was in KoC one wich i own both editions of) - it´s very simple but yet alows a wrestler to have up to 42 Front Grabbel Moves, 42 back grabbel Moves, lots of standing moves without a grabbel (not only kicks and punches, fireball, mist, stunner and so on) so with the stuff you can do on the ground and on other ocasions your wrestler easylee can extend 100 moves (if you want - you can asign no moves ore just the same one over andover again wen you want to create a hogan like character for ex.)

But still grabbeling is very easy becaus every wrestler uses the same system (including a buildup from weak to stronger moves, in the premade wrestlers the weak moves will always be accest over the same buttons) so you don´t have to learn wakky left right up combinations for every wrestler new again (corect me if i am wrong but i remember that that was the system aclaime always used including LoW, after the SNES games)

read an FAQ about the first KoC game to learn what buttons exactly have to pushed wen and were to acces all thes moves.

Finaly some News :-)

first, last weekend spike had test sessions in shops were fans (they anounced it on the side so people legitly came to test game) were able to play and tell what they would like to have changed/like ect. Some unconfirmed infos about this have been posted at GameFaqs (yes thats why i extra said unconfiremed, never trust gamefaqs posters)

Load times are long

-Camera work has been improved

-You can attack after the match has ended

-Lariats have been improved(I'm not holding my breath)

-Supposedly, there's now selling

-The ring is bigger

-You can choose audiences now? For example, like NJPW vs. NOAH at Differ with a pro-NOAH crowd.

New moves...


-Argentine backbreaker into German suplex

-Tanaka's lariat counter into rolling elbow

-Kanemoto's knee strike combo

-Cross knee hold from an ankle hold

-Top rope olympic slam

-Bull's Poseidon

-Gyaku otoshi(reverse drop)

-Nagata style corner knee

-Tiger suplex off the apron(sub for the off the ramp version)

-Hustle appeal?

-Kanemoto's modified leglock

-Crocop's left high kick into face punch combo

-Murakami corner stomping

The game now has U-Style rules. Just think of BattlArts/RINGS style.

Of cuase, if this is right it issent annywere near the compleed info about what is new, what is changed, what is in, also as they are still working on it some things might change.

5 new screens




New Video - TV Comercial (keep in mindee that spikes server gets killed each time a new video is on, so rightklick, save as, and waiiiiiiiit ^^)
