Rising Star Games to Release the R-Type Tactics Game for Sony PSP Later This Year
      06/11/08 05:13 PM

Rising Star Games is pleased to announce the release of R-Type Tactics for the Sony PSP. Available across Europe from September 26th 2008, this next instalment sees the classic brand reinvent itself as a tactical game, growing up with its fans throughout its 21 year legacy.

With a pedigree which includes a reputation for being one of the best side-scrolling shooters in gaming history, the R-Type franchise is considered to be a cult masterpiece of the shooter genre. Celebrating its 21st year since first appearing in Japanese gaming arcades in 1987, R-Type Tactics melds this classic brand with state-of-the-art tactical gameplay.

About the Game

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 the surroundings, the commander must use all his cunning and wits if he hopes to succeed, let alone make it home alive.

?R-Type has one of the strongest brand heritages in the gaming industry,? said Martin Defries, managing director of Rising Star Games. ?Many fans have grown up with R-Type, grown older and more mature. It?s fitting that in its 21st year the franchise has acknowledged this and created a game for these fans that is both refreshingly new and familiar at the same time.?
