Shouldn't this have its own thread by now?
There is currently a week-long Twitter poll to see which of four new ship designs people like best (with the caveat that these are just proposals, and there are no guarantees they will make it into the game).

R-Type Final 2 has reached the $1 million stretch goal, so it will now get a re-creation of one of the stages from R-Type Leo.
Also, they released a video showing the launch sequence for the Blue Symphonies ship. This is strange, not just because it came in last in the poll, but because they also note that it doesn't mean the ship will actually make it into the game.

The second crowdfunding campaign is officially over, finishing with over 10,000 backers and less than US$6,000 shy of the next stretch goal. A shame it didn't quite get there, but it was just a recreation of a stage from R-Type II, and since we already have R-Type Dimensions, it doesn't seem as interesting.
I find it interesting that the most voted-for stage to be remade from R-Type III was stage 4. It's a clever stage, yes, but is almost kaizo in its design, often trolling the player. It also has an extremely difficult end boss, so the whole thing is kind of a drag to play through.
Then again, I guess trolling the player is kind of a thing in R-Type...

According to Gematsu, R-Type Final II is scheduled for an April 29 release in Japan. NISA has not announced a Western release date yet (other than Spring 2021), but I bet they'll say something in the near future.

Shrikeswind: Sidebar, I never thought I'd see the day where staying up to ungodly hours was a sign of health. Covid be wild.

nocturnal YL: Remember NinDB Top 25? My list would have been slightly different now, even if I keep the series composition: (24) Ys VIII → (18) Ys Origin; (9) Atelier Totori DX → (8) Atelier Firis DX.

Shrikeswind: Finally finished this year's Christmas thread. Hoo boy has this been a stressful month. Sorry for the delay. And for that matter, sorry for any dead links in the playlists. No time to actually fix it, I need to get to bed.

nocturnal YL: Random trivia time: in Super Mario Galaxy 1, it's possible to swim in lava. The reason is that the overlapping water allows the Ice Flower to make platforms. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUmJLqo8kWg
