R-Type Final 2 might be on the horizon, but we've got a while to wait yet – which makes the announcement of Rigid Force Redux all the more appealing.
Developed by com8com1 and published by Headup Games, Rigid Force Redux is inspired by Irem's coin-op classic, as well as the likes of Konami's Gradius and Square's Einhander.
It will "challenge players to battle furious waves of sci-fi-themed enemies while powering up their ship with Force Shards and Energy Orbs" and is coming to both the Switch and Xbox One this summer.
com8com1's Head of Development, Marcel Rebenstorf, has previously worked at Ubisoft Blue Byte on titles such as ANNO and Might and Magic Heroes Online, and has spent the past few years working on this new title.
Check out the trailer and let us know if you're excited about playing this title on your Switch.
Wait. It was R-type "Final"! Shouldn't that have been .......well Final? How about porting Final to switch first?!
Riged Force sounds a little fruity if you ask me.
Looks like a good game though.
You went from rigid to ridged... were you aiming for ribbed? 😉
Ribbed force sounds far worse.
@GameOtaku Final was merely developed by Irem and published by Eidos in North America, Metro3D in Europe, and Irem themselves in Japan. While Final 2 is being published by Irem, period. So, ask the other two companies to port it for an English version or convince Irem the region-free Switch only needs the Japanese version without an English translation.
New. Wide Screen. Shoot Em Up. Yes.
Looks much better than R-Type and I love Ridge Rac...Force...Renegade...
May probably check it out, I'm a fan of scrolling space shooters like Life Force, Lightening Force, and R-Type so this is defnitely up my alley.
Well this looks pretty damn good to me, day one I think. It’s about to time we had new shoot em ups:)
What about KS supporters????
These new smooth 3ds graphics lack the charm and wonder of those old school R-Type games.
