Need for Speed: Underground 2 PPSSPP is a cross-platform racing video game and the eighth installment in the Need for Speed PPSSPP series, the direct sequel to Need for Speed: Underground PPSSPP. It was developed and published by Electronic Arts in 2004, for PPSSPP Android Emulator. Like its predecessor, it was also commercially successful, selling around 11 million copies worldwide and breaking sales records in the United Kingdom.
The game entails tuning cars for street races, resuming the Need for Speed: Underground PPSSPP storyline. Need for Speed: Underground 2 PPSSPP Android provides several new features, such as a broader customization, new methods of selecting races, the “explore” mode in a large city known as “Bayview”. The City Center was based on Philadelphia, Beacon Hill was based on Beverly Hills and Coal Harbor was based on Camden, New Jersey, and the Stadium area was based on Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. Brooke Burke is the voice of Rachel Teller, the person who guides the player throughout the game. The game’s storyline is presented in a comic book strip.
The game has been ported to PlayStation Portable, under the title of Need for Speed: Underground Rivals PPSSPP Android. The Nintendo DS port introduces a new feature in which the player is able to design custom decals to adorn any vehicle in the game.
The game was followed by Need for Speed: Most Wanted PPSSPP in 2005, featuring a plot extraneous to the Underground duology.
