You have GOT to be kidding me. This is the least expected thing I wanted. I was hoping I wouldn't see R-Type again after Final...

At first I thought this was an April fool, but way too elaborate for that, right?

Seems like an insane amount of effort for that.

Sometimes, games that were once intended to be final may end up being resurrected with new refinements.

I do hope that R Type Final 2 allows for simultaneous multiplayer (2P at least, 4P mind-blown).

If this is not an April Fools Prank, then it may be the most epic teaser preview ever done.

Is this game going for other consoles besides PS4 (like Nintendo Switch, PC, or even Xbox One)?
Exa Arcadia is top of my wishlist for super deluxe edition of R Type Final 2

Anyways, old school shmup fans, at least rejoice!

Irem did use to make really elaborate April Fool's jokes back in the day. The trailer and the website is pretty much on par there. But you could usually tell they were April Fool's jokes because the ideas were so out there. I am pretty sure I've seen one of those screenshots before some months ago, in some article about R-Type Final and how they didn't call it Final at first.

I remain skeptical, but would welcome this news with a joyous heart.

I'm really loving the background that goes into hyper speed when you scroll.

Probably not the thing they were hoping I would be most excited about.

I really, really, really hope this is real. I love shmups with huge ship rosters so R-Type Final 2 really speaks to me.

To be fair, while not an STG, Fighting Ex Layer was an idea that came out as a possible April Fools joke, but it became real, and besides I doubt the same for R-Type Final 2 being real. (I've even actually played the first R-Type Final back in the day.)

But crowdfunding??? Hmm...

Try changing the site language to Japanese and scroll down the page.

Look, if this is real, I just hope it isn't as hard as the other R-Type games. Just give us the option to remove checkpoints, like in Gradius V. Because checkpoints has been one of my pet peeves with the R-Type series.

On the Japanese side you can find a link to t-shirts commemorating the game but the page says they aren't available on April Fool's Day.

The bottom of the page says crowdfunding starts in May.

Put your wallets up.

Edit: They said its not an April Fool's joke.

I hope it isn't an April fools. R-Type Final was one of the weaker R-Type games but it had a lot of potential. With better level designs, better pacing and and an OST worthy of the series it could have been a great game, definitely worth a second attempt at some of the new stuff Final brought to the series.

If this is real I'll likely remain skeptical for a while until I can see more actual gameplay (what I see in the trailer screams "mock-up" to me).

If it's crowdfunding, why isn't this on Kickstarter?

Maybe because it's not May yet?

Even if it started as an April Fools, they might as well finish it now, look at all the high poly assets on that page.

Tbh I'm already worrying about the stage design, c'mon guys, make it exciting and don't put dead air in there.

Maybe that's what it is. They started as an April's Fools joke and it got to a point where they felt they could make a full game via crowdfunding.

Also wtf.

R-Type is great, ultra modern design with too much dead air (some of which crept into Final) is not.
