About R-Type Command

In a desperate war against the mysterious alien
race known as the Bydo, humanity sends wave after wave of fighters into Bydo
space — none of which are ever heard from again. Mankind’s main hope now
resides with a lone commander, sent to lead a small armada on a perilous mission
into the heart of the Bydo Empire. Low on fuel and forced to scavenge resources
and equipment from his surroundings, the commander must use all his cunning and
wits if he hopes to succeed, let alone make it home alive.

Key Features:

  • R-Type reborn – The highly acclaimed franchise
    moves into the strategy genre with exciting tactical gameplay!
  • Control the Bydo forces – For the first time
    in the series, take command of the Bydo forces as they launch their assault on
    Earth!
  • Intense strategy gameplay – With nearly 100
    different units at your disposal, it’s up to you to choose the best fleet for
    battle. Upgrade your existing units or purchase new ones!
  • Head-to-head local multiplayer – With the PSP
    wireless communication feature, play against a friend in Wireless Ad Hoc mode
    for a one-on-one strategy battle!
