Fire Hawk: Thexder - The Second Contact (テグザー2 ファイアーホーク), also known as Firehawk: Thexder 2, Firehawk or Thexder II, is a video game developed and published by Game Arts for the MSX2, MS-DOS and PC-8801 in 1989 as a sequel to Thexder only in Japan. The MS-DOS version was later released by Sierra On-Line.[2]




The One predicted that "with furious arcade action, high-resolution graphics and 11 complete songs (...) Thexder II looks set to surpass the success of the original."[3] The game was indeed well-received upon release[4][5][6] and sold well both in Japan and in the USA.[7][8][9]
