Granzella has launched the Kickstarter campaign for shoot ’em up sequel R-Type Final 2, which is seeking 45 million yen (approx. $416,000) in funding for an estimate December 2020 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
Here is a brief overview of the game, via the Kickstarter page;
We are licensed by Irem Software Engineering Inc. and about to make a new title of the legendary side-scrolling shooter game, R-Type.
The psychological tug-of-war with enemies, the unique level designs, and the exhilarating feeling that have been polished up by the franchise will further evolve on a 16:9 widescreen.
We’ll pursue uniqueness of the fighters and coolness of attacks that appeared in R-Type Final. In addition, more customizable elements for fighters will be available. You will be able to change the coloring, types of weapons, and decals.
Sometimes people would say R-Type is “too tough to play.” R-Type Final 2 will make a wider range of difficulty levels available to players with different skill levels. The higher the difficulty level you play, the more points you will gain. This will enable players to compete with R-Type pilots from all over the world.
