"R-Type" is the milestone in side-scrolling shooter games, which went out into the world in 1987. In June 2019, we kicked off the crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to bring the latest R-Type title into the world. With all the support we gained through the campaigns, we successfully launched the game worldwide in the spring of 2022. Many heartfelt thanks to everyone for supporting us. With your continuing support, we will continue to add to and update the game after its release. Many thanks for your continued support.
With the slogan, "The Best R-Type We Can Make Now!", we create a new R-Type and constantly update it. Easier for those who are not good at shooter games and more challenging for more skilled players... It is a new R-Type that combines both contrasting elements. We hope you'll give it a try!
The screen structure is easy to understand with the horizontal view, and unlike previous series, the stage is designed for a 16: 9 screen. Stages of varied battles. In the latest version, you can play as many as 13 stages.*
We will continue to add more stages in the future.*These stages are playable by those who have purchased the game. More stages can be added by installing additional DLC.
The best part of R-Type is taking on formidable enemies by making full use of the "Wave Cannon with overwhelming destructive power" and "invincible partner Force" mounted on the player aircraft. R-Type Final 2 offers more than 100 player ships. (105 aircraft as of ver. 1.4.0) As you progress through the game, you will be able to develop your own aircraft. You will find the best aircraft to complete the stages you are struggling with.
You can change the appearance of your aircraft by changing the color or applying decals.
In addition, a type of aircraft known as the ultimate fighter can be equipped with any combination of weapons from player ships developed up to date.
There are a number of locations where you can take pictures of your favorite aircraft.
Once you collect seven stages you have completed, you can build seven-stage configurations to your liking. You can name the stages as you like. Moreover, you can change the title of the game.
We have introduced a system that allows players who find side-scrolling shooters too difficult to play and experienced players who want more challenges to fine-tune the difficulty level. (From Ver. 1.4.0)
The DLC includes resources needed to develop aircraft such as Solonium, Etherium, and Bydogen, R points that can be used to purchase items and pilot suits in the store, and "Arms Warranty Tickets" and "Wave Acceleration Tickets" to reduce the difficulty of the gameplay. There are four types. One of them is for free, so please take advantage of them.
