NIS America to Publish Side-scrolling Shoot-’em-up ‘R-Type Final 2’ in 2021

Casting another gaze at their video game line-up for 2021, the team at Nippon Ichi Software America has announced they will be bringing Granzella Inc’s Side-scrolling Shoot-’em-up game R-Type Final 2 to multiple platforms in Spring 2021 (Autumn 2021 for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere). Supported consoles receiving a home video release of this game include the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC and both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Developed by Granzella, this is a follow-up instalment to ‘R-Type Final’, which was released exclusively for the PlayStation 2 back in 2003-2004 where it received pretty good sentiment from video game journalists at the time. They hope that this game will appear to both veterans and newcomers to the franchise and genre alike with its adaptive performance-based difficulty system and customisable ships and pilots. Features of the R-Type franchise including the “Force” mechanic are also set to make a return.
