XBLA: R-Type Dimensions

Despite releasing during an era characterized by unfortunate haircuts and glam rock, 80’s arcade game “R-Type” managed to define the shooter genre – which is why Xbox LIVE is bringing this classic to our own Arcade with “R-Type Dimensions” on February 4.

Coin-op classics “R-Type” and “R-Type II” come together as “R-Type Dimensions,” with original 2D and new, fully-enhanced 3D graphics. The classic game play remains untouched, while the all-new “Infinite” game mode allows even novice pilots the chance to complete both games in either solo or co-op play via Xbox LIVE.

Published by Microsoft and developed by Tozai Games and SouthEnd Interactive, “R-Type Dimensions” will be available for 1200 Microsoft Points worldwide on February 4.  The game is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
