I feel like there should have been a physical version for America and Europe when it was released in 2015.

Logistics and manufacturing is expensive, game stores are fewer than ever and the shoot 'em up genre is still pretty niche—especially outside Japan. Not surprised at all that it was digital only in the west. I still think it's a shame, of course, but it's understandable.

Not even the most popular of the shmups can get physical?

Darius has a history of not doing so well outside of Japan.

My guess on Switchildren.

Those who spam "is this coming to Switch" and "I hope this gets a port on Switch" over and over.... where if they had taken a second to look they would have found those questions have already been spammed 50 or more times already.

This. All day, this.

Here's hoping for a Steam release. As much as I'd like more R-Type, I'm not buying a new system to play it.

So, I guess it's Steam or bust.

Pretty much every Japanese 3rd party PS4 game comes to PC eventually.

I cannot believe I learned about this only just now.

I also dread the lack of confirmation about the game being on anything else but the PS4.

That said, this has the potential to be absolutely incredible. Just imagine DariusBurst's Chronicles mode combined with R-Type Final's ship selection with HD graphics. Calling this a wet dream doesn't even begin to do it justice.

Should R-Type be rated T or M? Because I'm honestly surprised a game like R-Type Delta got away with an E rating. Stage 6 in that game reminded me of the movie Event Horizon.

If it's anything like Final, realistically it'd be M. Then again the ratings board won't make it to the final stages so I'm guessing T. :lol:

That's really the big question, if they'd be willing to try that again. Since they specifically called it "Final2", it's a possibility.

Either way, though, R-Type has always struck me as the “Dead Space” of shmups.

Not to mention the final stage of Final, that somewhat vaguely hinted the entire game is a metaphor for impregnation.

The genre itself is a metaphor.

A tad too literal :lol: . More about creating life and what exactly that entails.

I always took it as a weird pointer toward the fact humans created Bydo. Especially since the music track for that stage is called "Bydo is...". It's continuously implied in the game that Bydo were created from human DNA.

More than implied.

"Ironically its gene structure is very similar to that of a human being." is pretty much implying. Heavily implying, but still not confirming. Bonus info: in R-Type Final, the stage 2.2 quote is "The DNA of a Bydo has the same double helix structure of a Human".

I think he was referring to the bell-end shaped crab-creature.

Oh, yeah. Cocks everywhere in R-Type.

All this talk about R-Type prompted me to dig up my old *Final* savegame again, with all 101 ships unlocked.

Yes, the graphics have that bland PS2 look to them and the soundtrack is forgettable at best, but it's still a fantastic shmup, imo.

How do you configure your ultimate R series fighter? I'm gonna go ahead and assume you pick the GigaWave cannon.

That website honestly makes it sound more like an "enhanced remake" of RTF than an honest-to-goodness sequel/new series entry, but who knows if something got lost in translation there (or I'm just misinterpreting it). The crowdfunding angle makes me additionally nervous, but I guess one way or another we'll see how this turns out.

Yep same here. I'm worried that this won't be a bonafide new game reading between the lines.

"The stages are rebuilt from scratch for the new game. As this is going to be the first R-Type game since 16:9 displays have become the standard, the screen structure will be reviewed to improve the playability and make the side scrolling shooter game more exciting and enjoyable. In addition, the stages that appeared in the earlier work will come back with new expressions and interpretations"

Also, I hope the music in the game is better than in the trailer.

I took the latter part there to imply that stages from older games may be reinterpreted or recontextualised in Final 2, as, for example, some of R-Type's stages were in Delta.

I suspect "the earlier work" refers to RTF1, not the older games.
I dunno, any Oriental language translated to English is always hazardous.

Well, I'll be damned.

They should have changed the title from Final 2 to something else. It's sort of sounds like a gag.

I hated R-Type Final, but that was a long time ago, and I love most of the other R-Type games. Delta was great. I'll definitely give it a look.
I just hope they don't forget about level design this time around. I looked up the designer, and he only worked on R-Type Final and not the other, older ones. So, this makes me a bit "let's wait and see".

Excuse me, I've watched the teaser several times; why does the player ship look like it's moving like a boat in the water? Or some kind of dumb slippy inertialized character on a cell phone game? Why?

^My guess is because it's hand animated, not actual gameplay. The sudden camera shift looks way out of place too.
