R-Type Final 2 Releases Soon on All Platforms, Demo Available Now

R-Type Final 2 brings the original's explosive action to new consoles with a galaxy's worth of customization.

R-Type Final 2 releases April 30 for PlayStation 4 and PS5, Xbox One and Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC, with an R-Type Final 2 demo available now for Switch and PlayStation.

R-Type Final 2 is Granzella's crowdfunded sequel to the fan-favorite R-Type Final, but previous knowledge of the series is not required. All you need to do is pilot one of the game's numerous R-Types and blast as many enemy spacecraft as possible.

It's the same fast-paced ship combat as the original, but with enhanced graphics for modern consoles, new R-Types, and a unique difficulty system. Enemies scale to your level, so the challenge is always matched to your skill level at any given point.

The R-Types are fully customizable as well, from weapon types to decals and colors.

For the competitive types, R-Type Final 2 also includes worldwide leaderboards with cross-platform functionality.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
