Tozai Games was thrilled to announce that R-Type Dimensions will be arriving on Nintendo Switch and Steam come late 2018. This will include both of the classics published by Irem, R-Type and R-Type II, which can be played with the original 2D graphics and music or 3D graphics and remastered audio.
Two notable features that will be introduced are the Full Power-up mode, which allows players to power their ships to maximum in Infinite Mode, and Fast Forward, which allows you to speed up the game in any mode.
Here are more features that you can look forward to in the upcoming title:
- 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
