Get your arcade sticks out. R-Type Dimensions will be released on Xbox Live tomorrow for the sum of 1200 MS points (just over £10).
The XBLA title contains updated versions of hard-as-nails '80s shooters R-Type and R-Type II, with nice new 3D visuals.
While the core gameplay and enemy patterns remain untouched, there is a new 'Infinite' mode, giving you endless lives so even normal human beings will be able to reach the end. Maybe.
Give it a go on the normal mode though, if you think you're hard enough.
