Makeruna! Makendō 2: Kimero Youkai Souri (負けるな!魔剣道2 決めろ!妖怪総理大臣?, "Don't Lose! Kendo Magic 2: Do it! Specter Prime Minister"), is a 1995 fighting game released exclusively in Japan to the Super Famicom by Datam Polystar. It was later ported by Fill-in-Cafe exclusively in Japan for the PlayStation on March 17, 1995, and later re-released for the PlayStation Network on July 14, 2010. The plot takes place after the OAV titled Makeruna! Makendō, which takes place after Kendo Rage, where Hikari, Mai's sister, enters the Monster Presidential Tournament.

Gameplay[edit]

Makeruna! Makendō 2 plays similarly to other 2D versus fighting games during its release, which the player's character fights against his or her opponent in best two-out-of-three matches in a single player tournament mode with the computer or against another human player. The player has a character roster of eight selectable fighters to choose from, each with their own fighting style and special techniques. Like in the Art of Fighting series, each character has the ability to perform desperation moves when the super meters are full.

While the player progresses through the story mode, he or she will also be gaining experience points which help him or her level up the protagonist Hikari and have better fighting abilities like more HP. It also includes a regular versus mode which lets players choose characters and put two CPUs, player vs CPU, or two players fight against each other.

In the original Super Famicom version, the gameplay has a traditional combo system. In the PlayStation version, the combo system and speed were increased.
