R-Type Final 2: Trailer and Release Date
R-Type Final 2 is the unlikely resurrection of the beloved shooter series.
What was thought to be an April Fools joke is indeed very real as we are going to get a proper new R-Type game after about 16 years of patient waiting.
R-Type Final 2 is the sequel to 2003's R-Type Final, which (at the time) was considered to be something of a send-off for the R-Type series in its traditional form (a 2D or 2.5D shooter). However, now it seems that a studio named Granzella will indeed be heading development of this sequel that is about as appropriately named as Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter.
Actually, Granzella's involvment is part of the reason why so many people thought this was an April Fool's Joke. Granzella is made up of many members of the former developer Irem who not only worked on R-Type Final and the very first R-Type game but who are particularly famous for their elaborate April Fool's jokes (some of which involved R-Type). It wasn't until Granzella confirmed after April Fools that this game is real that people finally became convinced this wasn't another prank.
Sadly, not much is known about the game itself at this time outside of the footage shown in the teaser trailer. Based on that footage, though, we believe that R-Type Final2 will be proper R-Type game both in the style of R-Type Final and the other classic side-scroller entries in the series. There are teases of some early story details, but we're going to go ahead and guess that this won't be a narrative-heavy game.
Actually, based on the trailer, we're pretty sure that this game is going to be all about beautiful light shows disguised as spaceship battles and some incredible music. R-Type always embodied the arcade style of game designand felt like they would be perfect titles for the Sega Genesis (which is strange considering that R-Type and R-Type II were never ported to the Genesis).
This article is really dumb, it was on the Master System. Seems to be PS4 exclusive which kinda sucks, rather play on PC.
