R-Type Dimensions to receive Nintendo Switch, PC ports in 2018
Last week, Tozai games announced that R-Type Dimensions would be coming to both the Nintendo Switch and Steam.
R-Type Dimensions is a compilation including ports of the original arcade versions of R-Type and R-Type II. While already available on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, this new release on Switch and PC includes two brand new features: the option to speed up the game, and a “full power-up mode,” which gives you the ability to power up your R-9’s weapons to the maximum in Infinite Mode… so cheat options, essentially.
Like the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions that came before it, the Switch and Steam versions also include the ability to play using both the original sprite-based graphics or a refashioned 3-D visual style.
Here is a list of the game’s features:
• 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
Do you have what it takes to defeat the Bydo Empire… twice? R-Type Dimensions is set for release on Nintendo Switch and Steam PC this winter.
