Granzella to Launch Crowdfunding for "R-Type Tactics I・II Cosmos"
Additional Scenario Production Project

 Granzella Inc. (Kanazawa City, Ishikawa) is all set to launch a crowdfunding campaign round on Kickstarter for the "R-Type Tactics I・II Cosmos" Additional Scenario Production Project starting from November 17th to 30th, 2022.

Your generous support of our crowdfunding campaign three years ago came to fruition in 2021 as "R-Type Final 2". We cannot thank you enough. "R-Type Final 2" has kept evolving since then, thanks to your continued support. And now, we are about to embark on a new project, aiming to revive, recreate, and enhance the sci-fi simulation game employing the R-Type worldview. It is "R-Type Tactics I・II Cosmos".

 "R-Type Tactics I・II Cosmos" is scheduled for release in summer 2023 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. This title combines the content of "R-Type Tactics" and "R-Type Tactics II: Operation Bitter Chocolate", released in 2007 and 2009 exclusively for the PlayStation Portable, into one package and reconstructed with cutting-edge expression technology.
 This crowdfunding project aims to add 24 new missions and units to make "R-Type Tactics I・II Cosmos" more exciting and offer more profound enjoyment for everyone who plays the game.

 Rewards available for backers include the right to appear as one of the adjutants in "R-Type Tactics I・II Cosmos" (limited quantity) and the right to become a development advisor (limited quantity) to participate in planning meetings and playtests for the content production.
 In addition, we have prepared rewards such as exclusive aircraft for backers to use in the shooter game "R-Type Final 2", which is currently on sale, and "R-Type Final 3 Evolved", which we plan to release exclusively for PS5 in March 2023.
We invite everyone to participate in this endeavor, and we hope you will work with us on the production.
