About The Game

Power Instinct 2 is a one-on-one fighting arcade video game.

The Gougetsuji clan of Kurokos had finally found a new master after Otane Gougetsuji finally defeated the former leader, her older sister Oume. Unfortunately Otane has now dissapeared! So a new tournament is called out in order to quickly find a new clan leader. All the fighters from the first tournament have returned as well as some eager (... and strange!) newcomers. Featuring some of the funniest parodies of famous fighting games, a cool soundtrack an tons of new moves making it a way better game than its predecessor, there is no doubt that only the strongest will survive this battle!

Trivia

Licensed to Cave.

This game is known in Japan as "Gouketsuji Ichizoku 2", and mostly known by the name "Atlus 2" (the creator company's name) instead of its original name.

The character Kurara is obviously a parody of the typical magic girl trend in Anime and Manga started with Mahou No Princess Minky Momo, Kurara has Momo's transformation from a little girl to a teenager; she is also a parody to the second series of Minky Momo as she is also from an underwater kingdom. Her voice actress is Kotono Mitsuishi, who happens to be the same one that voiced Sailor Moon, yet another popular magic girl. 'Kurara's good transcription is 'Clara'. She also has her own arcade game : "Purikura Daisakusen" (Note : Princess = PURInsesu, Clara = KURAra, PURInsesu+KURAra = Purikura) - Japanese love abbreviations.
