    TRIVIA
    Released in December 1998 in Japan.

    ALUCARD, a selectable character, backwards spells DRACULA.

    Aine originally appeared in "Samurai Aces" and as a hidden character in "Tengai" as Ayin. Here in Gunbird 2, he has quite a 'different' type of bomb attack:).

    Gunbird 2 shares some similarities with the 1975 anime series 'Time Bokan':
    • The flag symbol in Time Bokan is a clear skull and in this game is a 2P like a skull.
    • The thin guy has a very ugly nose also a moustache and teeth like a rabbit (he is the same in the game and the anime).
    • The fat guy has a beard. In this game and in Time Bokan, he has a semi-shaved beard (so with the exception of the beard, the guy is almost the same).
    • The chief is a luxuriant woman (in the anime, she always was topless in the end).
    • In Time Bokan, the bad guys always show a stupid new-robot to defeat the good guys. In the game is the same.

    Note: There are 27 different endings!

    The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to three smileys.

    Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Gunbird 2, Gunbird - SGCD-0003) on 04/12/1998.

    5-3-5-7-3 All Data Initialised.
    5-3-7-6-5 Sit an AINE Flag1 (Displays 'AINE ?' at test, extra 'explicit' character on random box).
