The Final History of R-Type

by eiga

The Final History of R-TYPE Shoot ‘Em Ups – From the original Arcade R-Type in 1987 to R-Type Final 2 in 2021, a complete history of IREM’s iconic shoot em up series. R-Type is arguably the most well known shooter next to Konami’s Gradius and has graced over a dozen home systems, from the Sega Master System to the Super Nintendo, TurboGrafx, MSX, Playstation, Amiga and many more. Often imitated but never duplicated, the combination of devious, puzzle like gameplay and alien atmosphere made R-Type one of the best selling arcade games of it’s time. Do you have a favorite R-Type? Do you know them all? With the new R-Type Final 2 release just around the corner, discover something new about this legendary IREM series. And pay homage to the almighty Dobkeratops, the most recognizable boss monster in all of shmups.
