Today, NIS America and Granzella announced the next two titles in the R-Type series are coming to the west.
The first is R-Type Final 3 Evolved for PS5. Despite the title, this is actually R-Type Final 2 in Unreal Engine 5, including all stages from the first Stage Pass and Update 2.0, plus exclusive stages designed by Kazuma Kujo himself and a few bells and whistles that doesn’t reach could be other platforms.
One of these is a PlayStation Home-like space that allows players to socialize and challenge each other. Kujo-san himself loved PlayStation Home and it served as inspiration for this feature.
The game will be released in the West for PS5 in Spring 2023 and will feature Japanese, English, French, Italian, German and Spanish subtitles.
Below you can check out the first screenshots, including a look at the physical Special and Deluxe Editions.
The second announcement is R-Type Tactics I • II Cosmos, a remake in Unreal Engine 5 of the classic turn-based strategy games R-Type Tactics from 2007 and R-Type Tactics II: Operation Bitter Chocolate from 2009. It’s worth noting that the latter was never released outside of Japan localized.
This comes in summer 2023 for PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC.
