      #29889 - 03/28/08 10:14 PM

Atlus today unveiled the playable demo for R-Type Command, the upcoming PSP (PlayStationPortable) system turn-based strategy game, exclusively at the PLAYSTATION Store. Boasting a taste of the many missions from R-Type Command, the demo offers an eye-opening hands-on glimpse into the franchise's daring new direction.

About R-Type Command
In a desperate war against the mysterious alien race known as the Bydo, humanity sends wave after wave of fighters into Bydo space--none of which are ever heard from again. Mankind's main hope now resides with a lone commander, sent to lead a small armada on a perilous mission into the heart of the Bydo Empire. Low on fuel and forced to scavenge resources and equipment from his surroundings, the commander must use all his cunning and wits if he hopes to succeed, let alone make it home alive.

Key Features
- R-Type reborn - The highly acclaimed franchise moves into the strategy genre with exciting tactical gameplay!
- Control the Bydo forces - For the first time in the series, take command of the Bydo forces as they launch their assault on Earth!
- Intense strategy gameplay - With nearly 100 different units at your disposal, it's up to you to choose the best fleet for battle. Upgrade your existing units or purchase new ones!
- Head-to-head local multiplayer - With the PSP system wireless communication feature, play against a friend in Wireless Ad Hoc mode for a one-on-one strategy battle!

R-Type Command has been rated E10+ (Everyone 10 and older) with Animated Blood and Mild Fantasy Violence by the ESRB. R-Type Command for PSP takes to the stars on May 6th.

That's cool that there's a pre-release demo, but I tried it out and I was like, "What part of this is supposed to be fun?"

Clearly not the same type of game as "classic" R-Type titles.
