acceleration of SUGURI 2 is an anime sci-fi shooter fighting game developed by Orange_Juice and published by Fruitbat Factory. It is the spin-off sequel to sora and was developed using Luna3D.

The was game originally released during Summer Comiket 80 on August 13, 2011. The game, however, had multiple gameplay and balance issues during its initial release as well as missing features that was planned for the game. Thankfully the game's original Japanese release was received patches that addressed these issues as of v1.3a. The game was later localized by Fruitbat Factory and released through Steam on March 7, 2018, and features various improvements over the original Comiket 80 release, such as higher resolutions with widescreen support, native keyboard remapping, XInput controller support, and online multiplayer through Steamworks.

The overseas version of the game has continued to received content updates with features similar to 100% Orange Juice!, gameplay rebalancing, and other quality-of-life improvements. A roadmap of content updates and planned features to come can be viewed here. The game also has a niche multiplayer scene through the publisher's and the unofficial acceleration of SUGURI 2 Discord servers, with torunaments being hosted on the Suguri_TV twitch channel. The game was also featured in a tournament in CEOtaku in 2019.[1]
