A few years ago, R-Type and R-Type II were revitalized for new platforms under R-Type Dimensions. This release is now making its way to Switch, Tozai Games has announced.

Among the features of R-Type Dimensions are new 3D graphics as well as re-imagined arrangements of music tracks. Players can switch between the 3D visuals and classic 2D graphics with a single button. Other elements include an infinite game mode for continuous progression from game start to final boss, two-player co-op with the Joy-Con, achievements, slow motion and fast forward functions, and player statistics.

R-Type Dimensions launches this winter in Japan. A western release should follow around the same time.

Here’s a trailer:
