World Championship Soccer 2 is one of many football/soccer games released for the North American Sega Genesis and European Sega Mega Drive systems, in 1994. The player can choose between many different worldwide football teams and has many features common to soccer games of the time, including choices of automatic defence and attack formations and strategies. There are a number of different game play options and tournaments the player can be a part of.
The game even has an option to replay the games from the 1986 and 1990 World Championships.
In Europe, the game was originally released with a blue-bordered cover in the style of many late (post-1993) Sega Mega Drive releases.
The game was later re-released as part of the Sega Classic Mega Drive series. It is unusual in comparison to most other titles in this series in that it was not previously a popular large-selling title, while the others (Cool Spot, Shinobi III, TaleSpin etc.) were.
The North American Sega Genesis version is a common title in low demand, and typically retails for very low prices. In contrast, due to its extreme scarcity, the original (blue-bordered) European release is a highly sought-after game. Over the past few years (2002–present) only a handful of copies have been sold or traded across the Internet. In July 2008, a copy was sold on eBay UK for £751.
The re-released European brown-covered Sega Classics version is an uncommon title, but much less in demand than the original "blue" version. Copies can generally be found on European eBay sites. This version of the game generally sells for relatively low prices.
