R-Type is the best side ways scrolling shooter and I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise. A version of the original game and it’s sequel recently showed up on the PlayStation Store in the shape of R-Type Dimensions EX, which included a version with the original graphics and an enhanced version with better, although not stunning, graphics.
Granzella have now announced R-Type 2 Final, a complete remake with super spiffy graphics and gameplay that has been tweaked for today’s modern 16:9 displays. It will also include a load of classic ships and weapons, and a difficulty level that adjusts to suit your skill.
R-Type 2 Final is coming to PlayStation 4, other formats and a release date have yet to be announced.
