Update [Wed 26th Oct, 2022 11:30 BST]: Granzella confirmed today that R-Type Tactics I & II will be coming to Switch in 2023, and we now have a name for this compilation.
As confirmed by Ryokutya2089 (thanks Gematsu!), RI Type Tactics • II Cosmos will contain both CHEAP Tactics (Command in the West) and R-Type Tactics II: Operation Bitter Chocolate. But while the collection is confirmed to launch next year in Japan, no Western release has been announced.
If we get confirmation of a Western release, we’ll let you know. And, if this edition gets released our way, it will be the first time Operation Bitter Chocolate is released here.
For more on these two games, check out our origin story from April below.
Original article [Fri 29th Apr, 2022 04:45 BST]: If you are a fan of R-Type, you may want to know that the remake of the turn-based strategy/tactical RPG RI & II Type Tactics was announced.
The Irem PSP classics released in 2007 and 2009 will be handled by Granzella (including former members of the Irem team) and were announced during the company’s latest live streaming event. These remakes are likely to be offered as “a single release”.
The first game, called R-Type Command in North America, was released in the West in 2008. However, the sequel was never made available outside of Japan.
The platform and release date are yet to be announced, nor the localization. If we hear any updates, we’ll be sure to let you know.
