Fans now have another chance to back Granzella’s R-Type Final 2 if they missed out on the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.
Granzella unveiled their plans to revive the R-Type series with R-Type Final 2 back in June. At that time, they held a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter that ran just one week but was successful, raising $914,688.11 to bring the game to life. That being said, Granzella is giving fans another opportunity to back it on the game’s website after an appearance at TGS 2019.
Apparently, even though this new game was successful on Kickstarter and was received well at Tokyo Game Show, many fans have voiced their disdain about not being able to back R-Type Final 2 to Granzella. Its crowdfunding campaign lasted only a week, which is pretty unorthodox for games on Kickstarter, because of outside circumstances. Granzella is planning to give potential players another chance to back the game via PayPal as R-Type Final 2 crowdfunding will reopen on the developer’s website from 9am ET on October 1 until 9am ET on November 1.
The reward tiers are identical to the game’s Kickstarter campaign and stretch goals for up to $2 million in funding have been posted. These mainly will allow Granzella to add new stages based on older R-Type games. If you missed out on the initial crowdfunding campaign but are still quite interested in assisting with its development or getting some of the backer rewards, this PayPal-based crowdfunding opportunity will probably be your last chance to do so.
R-Type Final 2 is currently set to release worldwide for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch sometime during December 2020.
