Coin-op classics R-Type and R-Type II come together as R-Type Dimensions, with original 2D and new, fully-enhanced 3D graphics.

“R-Type Dimensions” combines the genre-defining coin-op classics “R-Type” and “R-Type II,” with a twist. Although classic gameplay remains untouched, “R-Type Dimensions” elevates the experience to greater heights with brand-new additions and enhancements. For the first time, “R-Type Dimensions” allows multiplayer co-op play locally or over Xbox LIVE for up to two players.* Fight through all 14 Bydo-infested stages in the original 2-D or all-new 3-D graphics with the ability to swap back and forth between the two seamlessly. Strike down the evil Bydo Empire and save the earth in “R-Type Dimensions.”

Key Features:

  • Single player and co-op play. Locally or on Xbox LIVE for up to two players
  • “R-Type” and “R-Type II.” Two full playable classic coin-op games
  • All-new Infinite game mode. Assuring completion of games regardless of skill level
  • Classic game mode. Play that exactly mimics the original coin-op experiences
