Announcement of Launching an Additional Crowdfunding Campaign

We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for your continued support for "R-Type Final 2". Also, we thank you for supporting the Kickstarter campaign we ran in June 2019. Thanks to many backers, we were successfully funded and achieved the goal.

After the campaign period, we received feedback from many people saying “the campaign had been over before I knew it” because the campaign period was very short due to our circumstances and that we failed to make people known about the campaign effectively. We apologize that we have not been able to respond to this feedback and that we did not run the initial crowdfunding campaig long enough.

Therefore we decided to run an additional crowdfunding campaign for one month starting from October 1 (Japan Time) onwards. Once again, we are sorry that it took time for us to decide on launching an additional campaign. We look forward to your continued support and cooperation for “R-Type Final 2”.

About

We are going to bring out the latest title of the beloved side-scrolling shooter "R-Type" series with our overwhelming passion using state-of-the-art technology.

The platform will be PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam, and the game will be available in Japanese and English.

However, we need your help to realize this project. Please come join us and embark on a journey to strike down the Bydo Empire.

Thank you so much for sharing your opinions for the additional player ship proposals we made on October 11, 2019.
This is a quick update on where we are now with the development, and here is the video we made of the start scene of one of the proposed player ships. Please take a look.

Please note that what you see in the video is only in the testing phase.
With the R-Type Final 2, you will be able to see the start scene of your favorite player ship.
As for the TW-3B BLUE SYMPHONIES, the implementation has not been confirmed. We will continue to propose more ships to add to the game so please stay tuned!

Update (October 11, 2019):

Additional Player Ships Proposals

In the project "R-Type Final 2", we are considering to add R-102 and subsequent aircraft in parallel with the development of the game system and stages. These are just proposals. (The implementation has not been confirmed)

Proposal 1:

A requiem for mankind charmed by the power of the devilR-104 WHITE REQUIEM

R-104 WHITE REQUIEM is the enhanced model of the ultimate fighter R-99 LAST DANCER.
When a Wave Cannon is charged, the aircraft itself goes out of control, and the attack power of all weapons equipped with it increases for a certain period of time.
The cockpit is completely sealed, and no one has heard anything about this fighter's pilot.

Proposal 2:

Symphonies of combatTW-3B BLUE SYMPHONIES

TW-3B BLUE SYMPHONIES is a tank offshoot of the ground-based attach vehicle, TW-2 KIWI BERRY.
The cannon on its head requires 7 Loop charges, but it has the most destructive power among all the aircraft participating in this mission.
It is equipped with a variety of powerful weapons, including antiaircraft missiles and Rainbow machine guns.
From the tip of the Force, heroic music roars and which has the effect of encouraging allies.

Proposal 3:

Infinite possibilities of the BydoBX-1CX UROBOROS

BX-1CX UROBOROS grew out of the Bydo-type B-1C3 Amphibian III that gained mighty energy.
When a Wave Cannon is charged at a maximum level, BX-1CX UROBOROS generates optical camouflage on the aircraft and the surface of the Force to neutralize the attack of the tracking system.When the Dose system reaches 100%, the Force will be split into up to three to build up an impregnable defense mechanism.

Proposal 4:

Incredible strengthR-9uso800 APRIL FOOLS

R-9uso800 APRIL FOOLS is the only aircraft that utilizes the Kikai Machine Force, which was developed by incorporating the technology of the super-machine civilization that occurred in the central region of the galaxy.
They say that the Kikai Machine Force acts autonomously when it is separated, and it has a function to induce a malfunction to the enemy by showing disillusionment to them.
R-9uso800 APRIL FOOLS is equipped with the Ending Wave Cannon that shows the staff credit upon firing after 7 Loop charges.

The implementation of these aircraft in the game has not yet been confirmed. We are proceeding with the production of R-Type Final 2 as the "R-Type Series’ Platform".
We also have new stages and aircraft proposals to share with you.
We look forward to hearing from you.
