Well I ended up getting all three R-Types after not being able to play R-Type 3. Whilst initially not happy about spending more money than I had to, I'm kind of glad I got them. The original R-Type is phenomenal - I've never really played it before but it's intensely nostalgic. Can you be nostalgic about a game you've never played? I think it's just the graphics and gamplay that does it.

Super R-Type is great too but HARD! Starting at the beginning of of a stage after ONE life lost on the boss? That's harsh but it's still great - I've managed to get to the third stage - god knows how!

R-Type 3, well, I can't comment on that one since I have a HD set up. I may track down a scart lead some day but, until then, I can only speculate as to what this is like.

I just wanted to buy the PC-Engine/Turbografx version of R-Type and it was removed from the Virtual Console (in germany). In fact not only this but all R-Type games were removed from the Virtual Console including Super R-Type and R-Type III. Maybe it would be a good idea if NintendoLife marks these games as "not available anymore". (Like already done with the SMS version.)

There is only one R-Type they don´t quit in the service. It is R-Type III, all other games was removed except that. I have all, it is better you get that game before they quit it too.

There is no single R-Type game available anymore. At least in germany. Maybe in Mexico it is different.

Here in the states, all of the R-Types except R-Type 3 are history as well. Fortunately I downloaded them all before they were removed.

R-Type III is only still on the service in North America. It was also removed in Japan, Europe, and Australia.

I got all the R-Type VC games except for the Master System version, and I'm kicking myself for missing out on it. Sure, it's not as good of a port as the TG-16 version, but it did have that bonus level :(

^ Lucky you. I wish I had downloaded the PC-Engine/Turbografx version earlier.

Warning!!

According to a message on the Wii Shop Channel, Super R-Type and R-Type III: The Third Lightning (both for the SNES) will become unavaliable for purchase on March 31, 2012.

Hasn't that date passed already, or did you mean 2013?

Ok, then North America (Canada, USA and Mex) has still R-Type III while all the world doesn´t. I recommend if you don´t have it get it.
