We’ve known about R-Type Final 2’s arrival in this solar system for some time now. The sci-fi bullet-hell shooter in the long-running R-Type franchise was announced for a western release late last year, and given a vague “2021” window. Thankfully, fans of the genre won’t have to wait much longer, as R-type Final 2 will be taking flight worldwide on April 30th!

The release date was announced in a heart-pounding new trailer, which you can check out below!



Along with the trailer, NIS America shared a few more details on this intergalactic shoot-em-up:

R-Type Final 2 is the return of the legendary R-Type series, back and better than ever with beautifully rendered 3D graphics, exhilarating shoot-’em-up gameplay, and a multitude of stages, ships, and weapons that will allow you to conduct a symphony of destruction upon your foes.”
