Previously, R-Type Final 2’s Kickstarter crowdfunding was held in June for only a week’s time, leading to complaints that the campaign was over before people even realized it. Now, a second crowdfunding campaign has begun to make up for it.
Granzella released a message for the players on the website, which you can read below:
We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for your continued support for “R-Type Final 2“. Also, we thank you for supporting the Kickstarter campaign we ran in June 2019. Thanks to many backers, we were successfully funded and achieved the goal.
After the campaign period, we received feedback from many people saying “the campaign had been over before I knew it” because the campaign period was very short due to our circumstances and that we failed to make people known about the campaign effectively. We apologize that we have not been able to respond to this feedback and that we did not run the initial crowdfunding campaign long enough.
Therefore we decided to run an additional crowdfunding campaign for one month starting from October 1 (Japan Time) onwards. Once again, we are sorry that it took time for us to decide on launching an additional campaign. We look forward to your continued support and cooperation for “R-Type Final 2”.
Here’s the starting and end times for the second campaign below:
-Japan Standard Time (JST): At 10 PM on Tuesday, October 1, 2019
-Coordinated Universal Time (UTC): At 1 PM on Tuesday October 1, 2019
-Eastern Daylight Time (EDT): At 9 AM on Tuesday October 1, 2019
-Pacific Daylight Time（PDT）: At 6 AM on Tuesday October 1, 2019
-Japan Standard Time (JST): At 10 PM on Friday, November 1, 2019
-Coordinated Universal Time (UTC): At 1 PM on Friday, November 1, 2019
-Eastern Daylight Time (EDT): At 9 AM on Friday, November 1, 2019
-Pacific Daylight Time（PDT）: At 6 AM on Friday, November 1, 2019
Essentially, the crowdfunding is open for another month starting today, although not through Kickstarter. Instead, the crowdfunding is being done through the website, which you can find here.
Finally, Granzella released an official video for the playable version of the game that featured at TGS 2019:
