Granzella has announced a delay for R-Type Tactics I • II Cosmos, pushing the new tactical re-release into next year.
The new collection will forgo its previously planned summer 2023 release for one sometime next year – in 2024.
When R-Type Tactics I • II Cosmos does release, it’ll be available for Windows PC (through Steam and the Epic Games Store), Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5.
Here’s a rundown on the collection:
R-Type Tactics I • II Cosmos
As the Bydo continue to eliminate humanity, you must outsmart and outmaneuver them if the Space Corps has any hope of victory. That is, until you find yourself fighting alongside the very forces you were tasked with destroying…
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 Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, and PC, with R-Type Tactics II also 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. You can also set your sights on competitive online play to see who the ultimate tactician really is. With hundreds of ships and levels to choose from between both games, along with branching missions and a new third campaign (all exclusive to R-Type Tactics II), R-Type Tactics I • II Cosmos is packed with out-of-this- world happy!
- New Frontiers: With the debut of R-Type Tactics II in the West, both titles make their way from the PSP to modern consoles for the first time!
- Whose Side Are You On?: Multiple campaigns for each faction, as well as branching storylines in R-Type Tactics II, allow for a unique gameplay experience across both titles while fleshing out the world of R-Type® and the origins of the sinister Bydo Empire.
- Destroy the Competition: Face off against other players online in both R-Type Tactics I and R-Type Tactics II!
- An Unreal Makeover: Both titles have been remade using Unreal Engine 5, creating a collection that’s both strategically engaging and visually enthralling!
