TV Show King 2 is a TV trivia game show and the sequel to TV Show King. Up to four players can compete represented by their Miis. Next to the local game mode from the original game online support is now available as well. The game contains 8,000 questions (5,000 more than the original) sorted into twelve categories such as art and literature, entertainment, general knowledge, history and geography, language, logic and I.Q., movies, music, science etc. Entirely new is the Creator where new questions can be created. Questions can be grouped in question packs to be shared with other players. Questions packs are stored on Gameloft's servers and updates can be downloaded.
The gameplay is largely identical to the original game. It is generally played in three rounds of questions where everybody answers at the same time to earn virtual money. A spinning wheel (with items such as 'swap cash total with another player', additional cash or losing an amount) is used to mix up things between rounds, but this can also be disabled. There are 24 types of podiums available for the contestants, unlocked gradually. There are different types of quiz modes (Classic Quiz, Face Off, Last One Standing, Hot Seat), difficulty levels and the number of rounds can be determined. Next to human players the game can also be played against the AI. The game has a vibrant style with a host, a DJ and an audience.
