Overview

R-Type Final 2 is a sci-fi side-scrolling shoot-'em-up developed and published by Granzella (published by NIS America outside of Japan) for the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 29, 2021.

The sixth main installment of Irem's R-Type series (led by some of the team behind the previous 2003 installment R-Type Final), R-Type Final 2 brings the series into full HD while including a heavy customization element (as numerous aspects of the game can be customized, including ship appearance, pilot appearance, custom courses, and the names of each stage). In addition, the game includes numerous DLC stages, most of which are recreations of stages from past games in the series.

Like its predecessor, the game includes over 100 ships to choose from, each with their own unique weaponry. Unlike the original R-Type Final, in which most of the ships are unlocked through a tech-tree system, R-Type Final 2 combines a tech-tree system with a crafting system, as players earn resources through normal gameplay. Only half of the ships were made available in the game's release, with the remaining ships added through post-release updates (with the final one added on March 16, 2022). Three additional ships were made exclusive to certain crowdfunding backers through passwords, and some additional ships were added as DLC.

The story further expands on the lore of "Operation: Last Dance", the counter-attack investigated in the game's predecessor.

R-Type Final 2 was originally part of a Kickstarter campaign throughout 2019, receiving ¥98,863,825 in funding (with an additional ¥31,508,103 in two additional crowdfunding rounds).
