MS7 & R-Type coming to XBLA
That’s right, direct from the Tokyo Game Show. Metal Slug 7 & R-Type Dimensions will be heading their way to the Xbox LIVE Arcade collection. There has been no official release date as yet though.
Metal Slug 7 will be loaded with “new missions, new weapons, colossal new bosses, new game modes, and new Slugs to pilot.”
“R-Type Dimensions” combines the genre-defining coin-op classics “R-Type” and “R-Type II,” with a twist. Although classic gameplay remains untouched, “R-Type Dimensions” elevates the experience to greater heights with brand-new additions and enhancements. For the first time, “R-Type Dimensions” allows multiplayer co-op play locally or over Xbox LIVE for up to two players.* Fight through all 14 Bydo-infested stages in the original 2-D or all-new 3-D graphics with the ability to swap back and forth between the two seamlessly. Strike down the evil Bydo Empire and save the earth in “R-Type Dimensions.”
