rtype final 2

The classics are always the best, and R-Type has stood the test of time longer than many; it’s a game that everyone should have played in one form or another. But that doesn’t mean there’s not room for improvement and in 2021 we’ll be seeing a new R-Type experience hitting Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC – R-Type Final 2. 

Building on the legendary shoot ’em up with an unparalleled R-Type experience, R-Type Final 2 will bring the usual colourful visuals and frantic gameplay, all whilst stepping things up a notch with an explosive debut on modern platforms. 

Complete with 3D visuals and modern gameplay features, R-Type Final 2 looks to enhance and evolve what has come before it to ensure a challenge for the more modern player. No matter whether you are an R-Type veteran or a green SHMUP fan, Final 2 will provide the goods with a performance base difficulty system, customisable ships and pilots and the legendary, super addictive gameplay loop. 

If you’re looking for a new way to blast away the competition and find placings on worldwide leaderboards, then R-Type Final 2 will provide the following key features:

  • Enhanced and Evolved: Experience R-Type’s explosive return on current platforms, where the frenetic action of the original games meets contemporary visuals and modern gameplay features such as evolving moments. 
  • Universal Challenge: The performance-based difficulty system adjusts to each player’s individual experience, making this game accessible to new and old pilots alike. When you’re done decimating the alien hordes, check out the worldwide leaderboard to see how you stack up against other pilots!
  • Customised Loadout: Personalise every element of your ship, including colouring, types of weapons and decals. Additionally, choose among dozens of fighters that appeared in previous series installments, and even customise your pilot to your liking.
