Rising Star Games has announced it will be doing the honours later this year of publishing PSP game R-Type Tactics.
The game first came out in Japan in September 2007, then in the US (as R-Type Command) in May. So we're feeling a little bit neglected here in Europe. Still, better late than never.
The latest R-Type in the classic series comes 21 years after the original Japanese arcade game. It's still a side-scrolling shooter, of sorts, because the word 'tactics' hasn't been added to the title just for effect. Instead this newest R-Type has been created as more of a strategic shooter with a whole host of features not seen before in the series.
