Oh yeah, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner came out this week

A new launch trailer for the Zone of the Enders 2 remaster was released yesterday and it reminded me that the remaster was even a thing. Konami has done virtually nothing to promote this and didn't even upload the trailer on the game's launch day. At least it is available on PS4 and Steam without issue. I happened to catch the Steam store page before writing this and that spurred me into looking for information.
I'm not sure how the remaster holds up, but this intro cinematic should get you suitably up to speed with everything. It doesn't look that much different from my memories of the original Zone of the Enders, so I suppose the art direction is faithful. I also dig the anime music, though the English voice acting leaves a lot to be desired.
Anyway, the game is available for $29.99 and you can likely find it in stores near you.
