Additional Crowdfunding Campaign
FAQ

  • Q1 I want to back the R-Type Final 2, but I can't because the Kickstarter campaign has already ended. Is there any other way to support the project?
    A

    We are very sorry that our Kickstarter campaign in June 2019 lasted for very a short period and that we could not make the campaign known enough.
    Starting from October 1, 2019, we have launched the second (additional) crowdfunding campaign on the official website of R-Type Final 2. We will be delighted if you would support us.

  • Q2 I backed the Kickstarter campaign of R-Type Final 2 back in June 2019. Can I also back the second crowdfunding campaign you currently run on the official website of R-Type Final 2?
    A

    YES.
    Those who have already backed the Kickstarter campaign can also back the second crowdfunding campaign. Please note, however, that we will ship the reward separately for the Kickstarter campaign and the current (second) campaign so you'll be charged with the shipping fee twice.

  • Q3 Can I add-on multiple tiers?
    A

    If you'd like to add multiple pledges, please pledge separately for each reward. Please note that if you do so, you will have to pay the shipping fee for each of the rewards. The shipping charges include not just shipping fees, but also packing fees, customs duties, and other costs.

  • Q4 Do I have to pay customs duties in addition to the pledge amount and shipping charge?
    A

    No.
    The custom duties associated with shipping the rewards are included in the shipping charges listed on the pledge.

  • Q5 Do I have to pay Japanese consumption tax in addition to the pledge amount and shipping charge?
    A

    No.
    The pledge amount includes Japan's consumption tax (which is similar to sales tax or VAT).

  • Q6 Can I combine the sum of the pledge at your Kickstarter campaign and pledge to the second crowdfunding campaign currently underway on your official website? (For example, I pledged to the 6,600 yen tier during the Kickstarter campaign, so if I add 3,300 yen on the ongoing campaign, will I have the 9,900 yen reward tier?)
    A

    No.
    We are afraid you cannot change the reward by combining the sum of the pledge at the Kickstarter campaign in June and that of the ongoing crowdfunding campaign we are running on our official website.

  • Q7 When should I decide which gaming platform I'd like to play my game on?
    A

    When the date of shipment for the rewards is determined, we'll send an email to all eligible backers individually to the registered PayPal email address approximately 3 to 4 months before the date of shipment. Please follow the instructions specified in the email and contact us by two months before the date of shipment. (In the meantime, you will have enough time to think about which version (or versions) of the game you would like to receive.)

  • Q8 Are the language options available different for each region? It that is the case, how can I decide the language of the game I will receive as a reward?
    A

    R-Type Final 2 comes with Japanese, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), and Korean all in one package, and you'll be able to switch the language to display.
    Please note, however, the audio is available in Japanese and English only. So if you select the other language, it will be displayed as subtitles.

  • Q9 Can I use a nickname for the name on the staff credit? Also, by when should I decide that?
    A

    Yes, you can use a nickname for the name on the staff credit. We will ask you the name at a later date. Please note that you can only use upper case characters and numbers for your name on the staff credit. (Please note that if you use lower case letters, then we will change them to capital letters.)

  • Q10 [Relating to Game Content #1] I saw the trailer released recently. The speed of the ship and bullets discharged from look so slow, don't you think?
    A

    The player will be able to change the moving speed of the ship.
    I'm sorry about the speed of bullets. It is simply lack of adjustment. I would like to adjust the speed after thinking over whether to adjust the speed to be at least the fastest in the series or to make it faster by taking into account the fact the game will be designed for widescreen. (From Lead Game Designer)

  • Q11 [Relating to Game Content #2] Please implement multiplayer functions so that two players can play in the same game at the same time.
    A

    Honestly, we did consider implementing multiplayer before starting the game planning. After the consideration, we decided not to go for it. It was because multiplayer would not work well with a checkpoint-based game, and I wanted to focus my energy on improving the system development and balance adjustment.
    That said, we have received strong requests for multiplayer from many people, so we decided to reconsider the feasibility of multiplayer functions. At this moment I am not sure if it will turn out to be something you envisage, but I will do my best to enable you to play two-player at the same time. (From Lead Game Designer)

  • Q12 [Relating to Game Content #3] Do we have to rack up a certain playtime with a ship to unlock the next ship in a series just as it was so with the R-Type Final?
    A

    The direction for that point has been already determined. It will be different from R-Type Final.
    You will be able to develop a new ship while playing with your favorite ship. (From Lead Game Designer)

  • Q13 [Relating to Game Content #4] The screen size is so small that I can hardly see the coloring and decal on the ship, right?
    A

    You are right. When you are playing a shooter game, the ship is usually so small relative to the screen that you won't notice much difference even if you add visual customization on it.
    I would like you to know, howerver, we will implement a system so that you can clearly see your favorite ship when you take off, clear the stage, or select a ship. Moreover, the system will enable you to show off your ship to the viewers when you create "Let's Play" videos. I promise that not only you but also other people will enjoy looking at your beloved partner ships. (From Lead Game Designer)

  • Q14 [Relating to Game Content #5] Do you plan to include new R-craft?
    A

    Even if the "development of 102 ships" were a dream that is unlikely to come true, we will still be able to introduce new ships. So, yes, We will incorporate ships that have not been included in the past R-Type games. (From Lead Game Designer)

  • Q15 [Relating to Game Content #6]After the campaign, will you keep us updated with how the production is going?
    A

    YES, we will keep you updated with the production/ development progress every month on the official website of R-Type Final 2. Please stay tuned. (From Project Manager)
