Bellevue, Wash.—December 19, 2018—Tozai Games delivered a blast of holiday cheer with the release today of R-Type™ Dimensions EX for the PlayStation®4 system. Find out for yourself what everyone is raving about with a 20% discount during the game's first two weeks of sale on the PlayStation Store.*

 

Of the recently released Switch version, Metro.co.UK says, “The best 2D shooters of the retro era return once again, with a good value package that has plenty for new fans and old,” while Nintendo Life comments, “Both games are handled brilliantly, whether playing with the old-school sprite-based art style or the enhanced polygonal one.” Comicbook.com says, "the new treatments are excellent, and pay loving tribute to Irem’s work."

R-Type Dimensions EX includes both acclaimed arcade classics initially published by Irem, R-Type (1987) and R-Type II (1989). Each title can be played in classic mode with the original 2D graphics and retro music, or with shiny, hi-res 3D graphics and remastered audio. Three new features have also been introduced in this edition: Full Power-Up Mode, allowing players to power their ships to maximum weapon in Infinite Mode; Fast Forward, the ability to speed up the game in any mode; and crystal-clear 1080p resolution.

The key features of R-Type Dimensions EX include:

 

  • 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
