Adventure Quiz: Capcom World 2 (アドベンチャークイズ カプコンワールド2) is the third game in Capcom's Adventure Quiz series, released in 1992 for Arcades. Continuing with the board game theme and medieval setting of its predecessors, Capcom World 2 expands on the concept with the introduction of four different selectable characters, each with their own unique skill to assist the player in answering questions.
Adventure Quiz: Capcom World 2 is set in the same medieval setting as the first game in the series, a generic fantasy world known as the "Capcom Kingdom". The kingdom has been under the protection of three dragon guardians keeping watch over three crystals. When a mysterious villain steals these crystals, however, the dragons turn violent and start attacking the land. Four heroes embark on a quest to recover the crystals in order to return peace to the kingdom. The heroes are Wing the Fighter, Pure the Mage, Lyric the Priest and Fur the Cat. At the beggining the player can choose one of three different courses to play, each increasing in length and difficulty.
The basic gameplay has the player move their chosen character across a board styled map split into several squares. At the beginning of a turn the player throw dice and moves the amount of steps obtained, after which they must answer a number of questions correctly in order to continue. Each square has a different enemy marked which determines amount of questions and the rules or themes of the quiz. All quiz challenges are also provided by one of several Cacpom characters, granting either advantages to answer the questions or rewards upon completing them. There are also special Nurse squares and INN squares managed by Sylphie, both providing assistance to the player after answering correctly one question.
Capcom World 2 features a cameo appearance of Hiryu as the only Strider character in the game. Hiryu is seen in his scarf-less original design from the Arcade game, as the game predates the debut of his updated appearance in the Marvel vs. Capcom series.
A very rare encounter, Hiryu can only be found in certain squares found in the final two maps of the hardest route.
Quiz Capcom World!!
Quiz Capcom World!! (クイズ カプコンワールド) was an updated version of the game released on 2004 for mobile devices through the Capcom Party distribution site. The game featured brand new artwork for all Capcom cameo characters as well as brand new locations, like a course map set in the graveyard stage from Ghouls 'n Ghosts.
Unfortunately very little information is known about this version as it has become unavailable following the termination of Capcom's online platforms.
- Although the first game in the series, Adventure Quiz: Capcom World, features no characters or elements from Strider, Hiryu does appear in a promotional image displaying a large number of characters that were protagonists from Arcade games of the time, most of which didn't appear in-game either. Hiryu can be seen at the bottom left corner, wearing a blue uniform with a "hi" hiragana on his chest (standing in place of the usual "Hi" kanji emblem visible on his chest) and a metal shoulderpad, curiously a design element that was only seen in the original manga.
