Publisher Tozai Games announced that R-Type Dimensions EX is coming to PS4 next week, on December 19th.
Dimensions EX includes both acclaimed arcade classics initially published by Irem, R-Type (1987) and R-Type II (1989). 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. Three new features will be introduced in this edition: Full Power-Up Mode, which allows players to power their ships to maximum weapon in Infinite Mode; Fast Forward, the ability to speed up the game in any mode; and crystal-clear 1080p resolution.
R-Type Dimensions EX will be available via PlayStation Store for $14.99. Those who purchase the game during the first two weeks of sale will receive a 20% discount, reducing the price to $11.99.
