R-Type comes to Japan’s Wii virtual console shop

One additional game appeared in the Virtual Console shop for Japanese Wii owners and it was the TurboGrafix-16 release of R-Type. R-Type is a side scrolling shooter, which is well remembered for force ship attachment. The force acts as a mobile gunpod and can be shot out like a living weapon. When you’re faced against the first boss you can shoot the force into the Dobkeratops mouth to kill it quickly. Battle the Bydo empire (again) for the price of 600 points.
