NIS America has announced today that its upcoming shoot-em-up R-Type Final 2 will be releasing on April 30th, 2021 on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Strangely, there’s no mention of a native PS5 version, despite there being an Xbox Series X|S version of the game. However, it will be playable on PS5 via backwards compatibility.
There will also be a special physical edition of the game across all platforms, dubbed the “Inaugural Flight Edition” which comes with some bonus goodies, including a soundtrack of the game on CD, a mini artbook, and a collector’s box, as well as a copy of the game.
- Enhanced and Evolved : Be part of R-Type’s explosive return to today’s platforms, where the frenetic action of the original episodes meets modernized graphics and gameplay.
- A universal challenge : the performance-based difficulty system adjusts to each player’s own experience, to make this game accessible to everyone. After clearing out all the alien hordes, players can take a look at the world leaderboard to compete against other pilots.
- Your pilot, your ship : each element of your ship can be personalized, from colors, to types of weapons, to stickers. In addition, choose from a dozen ships present in the previous episodes of the series and customize your pilot as you wish.
