Goodbye R-Type (again)

After Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was pulled from Virtual Console, two more titles are set to leave the service in Europe this month.

Super NES games R-Type III: The Third Lightning and Super R-Type will no longer be available to download after 31st March.

It's not the first time this has happened with the venerable shooter series: in September 2011 R-Type for Master System disappeared from the service.

Anyone who's already bought the Super NES games will still be able to redownload them after 31st March, but anyone who's yet to shell out for some 16-bit shooting should act fast.
