Dynamite Cop, known in Japan as Dynamite Deka 2 (ダイナマイト刑事2 Dainamaito Deka Tsu ), is a 1998 beat 'em up video game published by Sega and initially released in arcades on Sega Model 2 hardware. It is the sequel to the 1996 game, Dynamite Deka which was released outside of Japan as Die Hard Arcade. The game was ported to the Dreamcast and released internationally in 1999, this time without the Die Hard license. A revised version, Dynamite Deka EX: Asian Dynamite, was released exclusively for Japan in 2006. It was developed by Sega Shanghai, under supervision from the original team.
Dynamite Cop is a 3D beat 'em up for up to two players in which players play as either Bruno Delinger, Jean Ivy, or Eddie Brown and fight through levels onboard a cruise ship and on a deserted island to save the President's daughter from a band of modern-day pirates led by Wolf "White Fang" Hongo, the main antagonist from the first game. The classic Sega arcade game Tranquilizer Gun (1980) is included as a bonus game. Clearing all missions will enable you to play Tranquilizer Gun an unlimited number of times.
