Wednesday will see the launch of R-Type Dimensions over XBLA for 1600 MS points, and it includes original and redone 3D visuals.
Irem's R-Type I and II are in the package with the added bonus of online co-op play for both thanks to Tozai developers. Side-scrolling explosive action is guaranteed, with cool ships too.
"The coin-op classics, R-Type and R-Type II, are together at last in R-Type Dimensions! Fight through all 14 Bydo-infested stages in original 2-D or all-new 3-D graphics, and swap back and forth on-the-fly," blurbs the official Xbox.com description.
"The classic gameplay remains untouched, and a new Infinite game mode allows continuous progression from game start to the final boss. The Bydo will not evade you this time!"
At $15 for two classics with added online co-op and the chance to continue from when you last played, it sounds like a pretty good deal to me.
