265w ago - According to the latest Famitsu Magazine, R-Type 3D is coming exclusively to the PS3 console.

It appears that R-Type Final is indeed not the last in the series, according to distantmantra commenting on the latest Famitsu issue at [Register or Login to view links]: "There's something about a PS3 exclusive (?) R-Type 3D, and 3D Dot Game Heroes got 8/8/7/7."

For those unaware, R-Type is a side scrolling shoot-em-up arcade game produced by Irem. The player controls a space fighter named "Arrowhead" to defend humanity against a mysterious but powerful alien life-form known as "Bydo", which was later discovered to be not entirely alien in origin.

To quote from Examiner.com (linked above): "It is unknown whether the "3D" in title means that the game will take place in a 3D plane or whether it would be in a 2D plane with 3D graphics (a la R-Type Delta)."

More details to come as they are available!

SF4 wasnt a slight tweak.... was it?

I want more remakes but really only for the ps2 games. They could benefit from some update graphics trophies etc. Older games are harder to translate
