Granzella have confirmed that the side-scrolling shoot ’em up R-Type Final 2 has been postponed and will no longer release this year.

R-Type Final 2 is the latest work in the seminal shoot ’em up series R-Type which began in 1987 with the classic original title from Irem. The new title will see dozens of fighters from previous entries reappear, along with a greater variety and expressions of the Force and Wave Cannons, and an automatically adjusted level of difficulty.

After successfully being crowdfunded in late 2019, Granzella were estimating a December 2020 delivery date for the title. Game designer Kazuma Kujo has issued an apology stating that this will no longer be the case and will instead deliver an update on the game’s progress in a livestream video (added below) at 21:00 JST on September 25.
