Warming the hearts of shmup fans everywhere, Tozai Games confirmed today that the influential arcade classic, R-Type Dimensions EX, is coming to PS4 on December 19th. The game will be available at a 20% discount during its first two weeks of sale.

R-Type Dimensions EX includes both acclaimed arcade classics initially published by Irem, R-Type (1987) and R-Type II (1989). Each title can be played in classic mode with the original 2D graphics and retro music, or with shiny, hi-res 3D graphics and remastered audio. Three new features have also been introduced in this edition: Full Power-Up Mode, allowing players to power their ships to maximum weapon in Infinite Mode; Fast Forward, the ability to speed up the game in any mode; and crystal-clear 1080p resolution.
