It seems the rumour from November turned out to be true. Atlus USA has today announced that R-Type Tactics will be heading to the US under the new name of R-Type Command. This entry into the R-Type saga will be in the form of a turn-based strategy game and will be available from May 6th for the recommended price of $39.99. We're happy to see this game finally make its way out of Japan, but why so late? May 6th couldn't feel further away.

They should port R-Type Final to the PSP...games like that and Gradius are just right for the portable crowd.

I love R-Type Final. That game has so much replay for true R-Type fans. I hope some company publishes Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaiki da in North America.

confused :( one of the classic names in shooters and its not a shooter, sometimes i wonder how on earth decisions like this get made.

A fast action, highly entertaining shooter downgraded to a lousy turn-based game? What moron thought this one up? Somebody really dropped the ball. I've been waiting so long for R-type for my PSP and this is what they send.
