The bizarrely titled R-Type Final 2 has now been totally crowdfunded and to commemorate that occasion we have now a really good new trailer.
To give a little bit of context right here, the primary R-Type Final was launched on the PlayStation 2 again in 2003 was meant to be a swansong for the R-Type collection.
While it wasn’t one of the best sport within the R-Type collection, it did have an infinite roster of playable ships, many from Irem’s traditional shoot-em-up again catalog.
What’s extra, Irem had a little bit of a historical past of doing elaborate April Fool’s jokes and lots of thought the information of R-Type Final 2 was some type of hoax, myself included.
Thankfully, it turned out that R-Type Final 2 was an actual sport and subsequently began its personal crowdfunding marketing campaign.
It’s this crowdfunding marketing campaign that’s now full and by all accounts has accomplished very effectively.
To commemorate this information, we have now a brand new trailer for the sport that reveals off a number of the backend lore of the R-Type collection in addition to some footage that appears like gameplay for R-Type Final 2.
I’ll positively reserve judgment on how the sport performs at this level, as if that is precise gameplay footage it’s clearly early and shall be iterated upon.
For now, I’m simply joyful new and correct R-Type sport is on the best way and that I will strap into the mighty R-9A Arrowhead as soon as once more.
R-Type Final 2 shall be launched for PlayStation four, Xbox One, Switch and PC in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later, although no particular launch date has been set.
