The company recently announced the development of the next Army Men game in the Sarge's Heroes series for the Nintendo 64.
Sarge and crew will return to Army Men: Sarge's Heroes 2 to battle the Tan forces, led by General Plastro, and preserve the Green turf, as was the goal of the first Sarge's Heroes game. The game will feature 18 new missions and a new accomplice for General Plastro, Brigette Bleu of, you guessed it, the Blue forces.
Levels include locations as exotic as the dining room, a graveyard, a mountain zone, and the floor beneath a bed. The game will also include a multiplayer mode that lets up to four opponents battle it out with bazookas, shotguns, grenades, assault rifles, mortars, and more. The Air Cavalry will fly in to assist you, too, if you call them.
Army Men: Sarge's Heroes 2 will ship for the N64 in the fall of 2000 and will be RAM Pak and Rumble Pak compatible.
