Shipping out next Fall
The original plan for R-Type Tactics I • II Cosmos was to have it release on Switch sometime in Summer 2023. Unfortunately, back in June, we learned that was no longer the case, and the game was going to be pushed into 2024. While we’re still waiting on a specific date, today we’ve found out that R-Type Tactics I • II Cosmos will arrive sometime in Fall 2024. This news came with a new trailer, which you can check out in the video above at the 29:30 mark.
R-Type Tactics I • II Cosmos combines the side-scrolling, shoot-‘em-up action the series is known for with tactical, turn-based strategy gameplay for a one-of-a-kind R-Type experience.
Remade in Unreal Engine 5, this two-game collection blasts its way onto modern consoles, with R-Type Tactics II making its debut in the West for the first time! Deploy your forces across multiple campaigns, playing as both the Space Corps and the Bydo, in either solo play or competitive online play. You can also enjoy a number of exclusive features in R-Type Tactics II, including branching missions and a new third campaign.
