For some reason, PSP games take a while to reach the European market. The upcoming release of Crisis Core, for example, is comically late compared to the Japanese and American releases. (At least Square Enix is making up for the tardiness through a number of great bonuses in the territory.)R-Type T...

When Atlus revealed the pre-order bonus for R-Type Command, we were pretty excited. Getting a replica ship sounded awesome ... until we found out that assembly is required. Yeah, we're lazy bums: we like having our ships pre-built for us! While the process of building the R-9 model isn't too cumber...

For fans of the franchise, this bonus alone should be worth the cost of admission. Pre-order bonuses are av...

The screens keep coming in for Atlus' upcoming R-Type Command. As one of the only games to come out on PSP for the next few months (seriously), we've resigned ourselves to pay close attention to the game. Thankfully, what we've played hasn't looked too shabby -- if we did, we really wouldn't have a...

We recently sat down with Irem's upcoming R-Type Command. Atlus is publishing the game in the States, and we have to admit that we were surprised by the new direction for this classic franchise.

One look at the PSP release calendar in April will send shivers down your spine: there's almost nothing coming out on PSP this month. Why is that? We're not exactly sure. Perhaps developers are in a post God of War and Crisis Core daze?The next big game on our radar is R-Type Command, set for relea...

Guess that God of War disc that Sony sent us had us a little ... distracted. We forgot to show you the debut trailer for R-Type Command, coming to PSP this May. This new iteration takes the series to a bold new direction. But is it the right one? Take a look at the trailer and tell us if you...

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAs you can see, we follow Atlus USA's requests to the letter. The quirky company has asked us to tell you lot about R-Type Command, "a bold new turn-based strategy entry in the long-celebrated series of side-scrolling shooters."
