Please don't let this be an April Fools. At the very least we need an R-type collection, Leo has no home version at all, Delta and Final are PS1 and PS2 only respectively.
Irem seemed to do it every year and mostly R-Type stuff, hopefully not this time.
One year it was a real life R-9 https://web.archive.org/web/20071009150924/http://www.irem.co.jp/contents/gallery/aprilfool_03/index.html
Really hope it's for real though this time.
There are a few that need a new home (but ain't getting one, sadly). Still pisses me off about 360 raiden fighters aces getting cancelled for a euro release. And Gradius V needs sorting out (though I'm hoping ps5 BC will).
Cave's 360 output would have had me purchasing a One if they were BC, too.
It is April Fool's Day right now in Japan and they go big on it over there.
However, this just doesn't look or feel like an April Fool to me. I'd expect something more outlandish in the preview if it were a fake.

If true, in my veins.
Yeah, it's a bit too believable.
Engaging anti hype thrusters.
If it is true, fuck them for releasing the details now.
(Also, god love 'em).

I agree theres nothing really 'funny' about it. The screenshots look pretty believable too.
We should know by morning. Japan's pretty good at the "not beyond mid-day" thing, so if it's a hoax, they should have come clean by around 4AM UK time.

Crowd funding? Hmm...
Confirmed that it was NOT an April Fool. Still subject to a crowdfunding campaign, though.
