R-Type Final 2 – Set to release in the west in April.
Until today, the shoot ’em up a fan in you has been counting the years since R-Type’s last foray into your console or PC. Now he will be able to count those who separate him from the long-awaited new episode.
R-Type Final 2 will launch on PC, Xbox Series X | S, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on April 30, 2021, in the West. Or just one day after Japan received it.
We will take care to remind those for whom physicality matters that, in the West, Granzella’s side-scrolling shooter published by NS America will even be entitled to a physical version, called Inaugural Flight Edition – for pre-order on Amazon.
Passed by Kickstarter, where he garnered close to a million dollars, R-Type Final 2 will be the sixth canonical episode of the Irem series born in 1987 in the arcade.
Almost 18 years will separate him from R-Type Final, which arrived one fine summer day in 2003 in Japan on PS2. And it’s Kazuma Kujo who is still in the design.
And as we know, you like pitches: Slay hordes of Bydo with your fleet of R-Type fighters, equipped with new and classic weapons like wave cannons, force units, bit devices, and devastating delta weapons.
