R-Type Final 2 will hit Switch and other formats early next year, it has been revealed.
The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine confirmed the news. The shooter – which is the sequel to the 2003 PlayStation 2 original (itself part of a series which began life in arcades in the '80s) – was crowdfunded to the tune of US$1,094,459 last year will also be coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam.
Granzella – a studio made up of former Irem staff – is behind development. Kazuma Kujo – who previously worked on R-Type Delta, R-Type Tactics and R-Type Final, as well as titles such as Metal Slug and In The Hunt during his time with Nazca – is leading the design side of the project.
Are you excited about playing R-Type Final 2 on Switch? As ever, leave a comment to tell us.
We'll have to Bydo our time
Love R-Type and I recently discovered In The Hunt (amazing) and Metal Slug 3 (absolutely stunning).
This is in good hands. I'm hyped.
Jesus wept what's with the music?! Still buying it though.
They need to put out an arcade version, dedicated, not just candy cab
Nothing is ever Final in video games, it seems.
Reminding me that R-Type Leo is one that deserved better than its only home release being a certain PC collection that was pretty clearly a repacked MAME. (that could be said for a couple other games)
Really looking forward to this, it looks great
This looks really flipping cool. I’m very happy with the series but I’d really like to see this series take off in a Star Fox direction with 3D, on rails. I don’t know how good it would be with missing dialogue and stuff but to see the player ships up closer and stuff would be really cool.
EDIT: let me rephrase: I think 3D, on rails, would be the natural progression for the series if it were to take place.
That joke was quite force-d
I have Dimensions on my Switch wish list, didn't know they were planning this....
Haven't played since the Master System. Dabbled with the Snes VC versions on Wii, but not much.
This game is sick!
Sounds like the filenames on stuff I get from my interns when I've asked them to make corrections.
Can't wait, i hope this, Aleste Branch, the Cotton reboot and new game, B.ARK and the new Strikers 1945 game will lead to a mainstream revival of shmups next year.
Does Final mean something else in Japanese?
Final 2 is pretty silly sounding.
Oh man . Oh man. Oh man. One of my five favorite games on ps2 gets a sequel AND will be portable!? I’M THERE
Can't wait for it-since KS and I thought it be out sooner..
I'll probably gobble this up whole.
Oh man, can`t get enough of R-Type. Will get this.
I'm intrigued, but this trailer didn't really show much. And why was it black and white?
I know, right? My take away is that it is in b&w, has horribly cheesy happy hardcore and anime ballads straight out of a furry convention dance floor, and it says R-Type on it. All I want is a title card and some gameplay footage.
