Tozai Games announced that they are bringing arguably one of the greatest shoot ’em up franchises in history to the Nintendo Switch and PC with R-Type Dimensions. It’s coming in late 2018, and includes both titles originally published by Irem: R-Type and R-Type II. Each can be played in their classic mode or with an upscaled, hi-res 3D/remastered version.
Two new features will be introduced in this edition: Full power-up mode, allowing players to power their ships to maximum weapon in Infinite Mode, and Fast forward, the ability to speed up the game in any mode. The Switch version will also feature in-game achievements.
- Two complete games: includes all 8 original R-Type levels and all 6 original R-Type II levels
- Switch between hi-res 2D/3D graphics with revamped music, or play the classic versions with the push of a button
- Infinite Mode and Level Select: learn the levels inside and out for the perfect, 1CC runs
- Co-op Mode: 2 players can play together “couch co-op” style or add collision for competitive play
- Slow motion play function: weave through bullets and enemies with ease
- Custom controller configuration: change the button layout to match your play style
