NIS America and Granzella just announced that R-Type Final 3 Evolved is coming to the West on PS5 as a new release remade in Unreal Engine 5. This PS5 version has seven exclusive stages. Previous versions of R-Type Final 2 will be updated to R-Type Final 3 Evolved, but will not include the exclusive content and Unreal Engine 5 visual upgrade from the PS5 version. During a recent press event, NIS America confirmed that it will also be handling R-Type Tactics I II Cosmos in the West. Read about that here.
