If you're a fan of R-Type, you might be interested to know that remakes of the turn-based strategy / tactical RPGs R-Type Tactics I & II have been announced.

These Irem PSP classics released in 2007 and 2009 will be handled by Granzella (comprised of former Irem team members) and were announced during the company's latest live stream event. These remakes will apparently be made available as a "single release".

The first game, known as R-Type Command in North America was released in the west in 2008. The sequel, however, was never made available outside of Japan.

Platforms and release dates have not been announced yet, nor has a localisation. If we hear any updates, we'll be sure to let you know.
