An collection of arcade classics are being remastered and brought back as Tozai Games announces R-Type Dimensions for Nintendo Switch and PC.

Expected out in late 2018, R-Type Dimensions includes both acclaimed arcade classics initially published by Irem, R-Type, and R-Type II.  Each title can be played in classic mode with the original 2D graphics and retro music or with hi-res 3D graphics and remastered audio.

Tozai is introducing two new features with Dimensions: a Full Power-Up Mode that lets power their ships to maximum weapon in Infinite Mode, and Fast Forward, the ability to speed up the game in any mode.  There is also a slow motion play function, two-player co-op or competitive play options, and custom controller configurations.  Furthermore, the Switch version will feature in-game achievements.

R-Type Dimensions is expected out this winter.
