Wow, just WoW! Great to see it contains both R-Type and R-Type 2. Love that instant switch between 2d and 3d look, great. Can't wait to get my hands on it. Shame they did not included R-Type LEO, but who knows maybe its coming one day. We can always hope.

I think R-type is still the unbeated king of shoot'em ups.

With Thunder Force VI coming out in just a few days, it feels like 2008 is going to be the year of the shmupers!
But seriously "arcade mode"? Is this "World of World of R-Type"?

you are definitely right. I still remember beating the hell out of the SMS and PC-E versions ...

But why do they show the last boss? That's insane! Wonder if part one contains that "Special Stage" ... but I guess not

Is it a faithful remake or will there be extra content and features?

Edit: Apart from the 2D to 3D thing, I see that.

LEO was okay but didn't seem like a proper R-Type game.
I'd rather see R-type III, even though it wasn't in the arcade.

I REALLY want Sega to bring Thunder Force VI out on the Xbox360 on XBLA or even on disc as a full price game! :(

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I never really understood why people get so bent out of shape over sales. Dreamcast and Sega Genesis are two of my favorite consoles ever. Love my WiiU. Just play games noobs. (2 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I'd like to see uncharted but that won't be this year. And as with every big game thing like E3, i'd love to see last guardian. I suppose that might be a surprise thing for this year...but i doubt it. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I find it hard to believe that Microsoft doesn't have a single title to position as a big holiday release. Sure, it might be Halo 2, but I also (SADLY) half expect that strategy to work. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I have a feeling E3 is going to be more a conveyor of bad news. Like division not coming this year, or destiny delayed until january...just annoying all round. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think MS will have sunset overdrive, halo 2 and forza horizon (oft rumoured to be 2014) and sony will have the order, last of us, driveclub. I think exclusive wise that'll be it from both. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: yeah, the remake of halo 2...halo 5 ain't this year. I'd be surprised if either have anything to add to this year tbh. (3 Hours ago)
