Strikers 1945 II (ストライカーズ1945II) is a vertically scrolling shoot 'em up released in 1997 by Japanese company Psikyo, a followup to Strikers 1945. This game was also ported to the PlayStation and Sega Saturn.
Continuing where the last game ended, the forces of CANY had been demolished by the previous Strikers' line-up. However, a small group known as the FGR stole the sources and technology responsible for the last events and planned to continue CANYs work by initiating world-warfare with massive mech technology. Once again, the Strikers are called into action.
The player chooses one of six WWII-era fighter craft, using machine guns and bombs to fight through eight stages, played in random order. Once the game is beaten, a report showing how well the player did is displayed, and the game 'loops' with the difficulty much higher. Each game begins with three lives, and an extend is earned at 600,000. When all lives are lost, the option to continue is given but the score is reset.
Agetec released Strikers 1945 II for the PlayStation in the US under the title Strikers 1945. Midas Interactive released Strikers 1945 for the PlayStation in Europe as a budget title in 2003.
