Published May 12, 2014 Leave a Comment

The wildly popular arcade shooter games R-Type and R-Type II have been remastered to work on the PlayStation 3 called R-Type Dimensions. The game will be available on May 20th from the PlayStation Network for US$9.99.

R-Type Dimensions will feature a total of 14 levels for gameplay exactly like the coin-op version. There will be 14 levels in total, this is a combination of both R-Type I and R-Type II games leaving no level left behind. And to sweeten the pot even more the game has gone from 2D graphics to add new high-definition 3D graphics. Now players can toggle between the graphic styles during play with a push of a button.

There are two game modes, these include an Infinite Mode, that will allow players to practice and play any level, and a Co-Op Mode for two people. Players can also alter the game experience with a slow-motion button and can configure the controller to their own personal preferences.

When ever a game is remastered it is a good bet that it will be a hot title all over again, I am sure this is the case with this game.  I remember spending hours in the arcade trying to beat this one and enjoying the ride the whole time.  This game is going to be a sure winner and a welcome addition to my game stable.  So until next time…

Game on!
