It's no secret that among the horizontal scrolling shooters, Irem's R-Type
and Konami's Gradius
series' are the best of the best. If you disagree, go play them. Seriously. Anyway, we were alerted via e-mail today that Play-Asia is selling R-Type Tactics
today, as it was released overseas. Normally, importing games requires some kind of knowledge of another language, unless you don't mind having no idea what's being said, but this is R-Type
at its core. The story won't revolve around much more than "kick ass, don't take names, but do it tactically this time." So go ahead, if you really want
, snag this game and take advantage of the region free PSP! We're tempted to.
