Rated M for Mature fan service shoot ‘em up sequel Waifu Discovered 2: Medieval Fantasy is ready to go on Nintendo Switch. Last year eastasiasoft and One-Hand-Free-Studios gave us Waifu Uncovered, a shoot ‘em up with a heavy dose of fan service in which you rescued girls by destroying the aliens who have infected them. Unfortunately, their clothes have also been compromised, so you had to destroy their clothes in the process to make sure that all of the infection was eradicated.
Waifu Discovered 2: Medieval Fantasy once again has you trying to rescue eight damsels in distress, but this time around, it’s all under a medieval setting. Evil creatures are infecting the prettiest girls in the land as well as their clothes, which is robbing them of their vital energy. This will end up making them age at an extremely fast rate. By defeating enemies and collecting the magical runes they leave behind, you’ll be able to slowly destroy the compromised clothes before it’s too late. Once all clothes have been taken care of, defeat the boss, and you will save the girl!
At first, you’ll only have one ship and pilot to pick from, but you’ll unlock more as you play the game. Each ship will have different starting stats for movement speed, bullet power, multishot, rapid fire, number of drones, drone power, bomb stock, health, and force field, so the ship and pilot you pick for subsequent runs will have an effect on how you approach things.
You’ll move your character with the left analog stick or the D-Pad, shooting with the A button and using a powerful bomb with the B button as long as you have some in stock. The X button is for your shield launch, as long as your ship is equipped with a shield. Some shields will instead be able to have a forcefield to protect them from some damage. You can collect power-ups, which are of a colorful nature, or power-downs, which are black and red and must be avoided. These include changing your ship’s level, recovering some of your lost health, a laser drone, a multishot drone, a boost to drone power, to bullet power, shield, force field, extra bombs, a rapid fire, a boost to your speed, or money.
Between each stage, you’ll get to visit the witch’s store so that you can spend your money to level up and increase your ship’s stats. The better the boost, the more expensive it will be. For some upgrades, you’ll first need to level up your ship so that it can then receive the benefits of the upgrades. As you upgrade each of the stats, the price to upgrade it one more level will increase considerably. I’d suggest you also buy at least one bomb between each level so that you can have one in stock to save you when things get rough.
Waifu Discovered 2: Medieval Fantasy improves on what its prequel set out to do, offering a bigger challenge, an upgrade system, and a medieval fantasy setting. There’s still going to be a heavy dose of fan service in this one, which is why it earns it Rated M for Mature rating. You’ll have to play the game from start to finish to unlock the uncensored option for the characters, and then you can take on the more challenging Arcade Mode as you aim to unlock the extra mode, which is similar to the one in Waifu Uncovered. Waifu Discovered 2: Medieval Fantasy is out on Nintendo Switch with a $9.99 price.
