Acclaimed arcade classics R-Type and R-Type II are getting a nice facelift and are coming to the Nintendo Switch and Steam. These classics are being revived in the form of R-Type Dimensions. Along with the full version of both of these games, there will be some extra goodies packed in with this title. Check out the trailer above and some more information about these classics below! Having never played these games before, they remind a lot of Ikaruga, which is pretty exciting. R-Type Dimensions will be out later this year.
