Irem’s 1989 sequel to R-Type is headed to mobile devices courtesy of DotEmu, making the game – which received far fewer conversions than the original R-Type – more easily available to fans. The mobile port sports a range of features to allow players to get the most from the game, including support for Bluetooth controllers, selectable auto-fire and worldwide leaderboards. The game also features achievements, for those of you into such modern additions.
DotEmu has previously handled well-received mobile versions of the original R-Type and Another World, so we’re hoping that R-Type II turns out similarly well. The game will be available soon on iOS and Android.
