Irem's Arcade Shmup 'R-Type II' Blasts Onto Android & iOS

R-Type-II-Heading-To-Android-and-iOSAfter successfully giving the original R-Type title a successful port to touchscreen devices, DotEmu have returned to bring the games sequel over to Android and iOS. Irem's 1989 classic which has seen very few home console conversions can now be kept in your pocket and ready for action on the go.

This updated 2014 port introduces touchscreen ready controls alongside compatibility with external control pads, also coming with auto-fire options and worldwide leaderboards. If anything DotEmu seem to be gifting R-Type II the conversion it deserves by allowing the older generation to tackle the insanely difficult shooter in its rawest form, while newcomers can turn on the automatic blasters and cruise through the futuristic playing fields.

Although the game's newly launched trailer states that the game is now available, it would appear that the game is still yet to appear on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
