R-Type Final 3 Evolved will be available on the PS5 with over 20 playable stages. The existing R-Type Final 2 releases on the PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC will receive a major update that also rebrands the title to R-Type Final 3. The PS5 Evolved version will take another step further by adding more new stages and a VR mode where the player can watch the units’ launch sequences with a VR device.

R-Type Tactics I-II Cosmos

At the same time, Granzella also revealed details about R-Type Tactics I-II Cosmos. The company will compile content from the two turn-based strategy games originally released on PlayStation Portable while remaking the graphics to current standards.

The first R-Type Tactics came out for the PSP in Japan in September 2007. Atlus localized the title in North America as R-Type Command in May 2008. The sequel R-Type Tactics II: Operation Bitter Chocolate also appeared on the PSP, but it only had a formal release in Japan in late 2009.

Although Irem secured an ESRB rating for R-Type Command II in 2010, an official localization never came out until Western users took it upon themselves to release an English fan translation in 2018. The second game’s inclusion in this remake compilation will mark its first official release outside Japan.

R-Type Final 3 Evolved will appear on PlayStation 5 in March 2023. Granzella will then release R-Type Tactics I-II Cosmos for PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in Summer 2023.
