R-Type Dimensions finds new life on PS3 this month

Remastered compilation of R-Type and R-Type II

R-Type Dimensions released several years ago on Xbox Live Arcade and hey, it's back in the news with a PlayStation Network version coming to PS3 later this month. Cool.

This is a package combining R-Type and R-Type II with bonuses, including (optional) new high-def graphics, Infinite Mode, and a level select, to name a few. It'll be out May 20, 2014 for $9.99.

It's disappointing to hear R-Type Dimensions isn't also coming to PS Vita, as that usually seems to be the way. Surely the people responsible for this port knew there'd be demand for a portable version, too. Wonder what kept them from going for it. Death to the Bydo, all the same.
