    I believe it's 3D a la R-Type Delta: polygonal graphics with x/y gameplay.

    Mmm, R-Type. The last time I played R-Type was in the arcade about 15 years ago. Great game, I'd buy this in a heartbeat if it came to the US.

    Yup, 2D gameplay, 3D graphics ala Einhander etc.

    The official R-Type Final homepage is live with screens.

    Not only is a new Gradius on the way, Dean, but Treasure are on the case.

    Woo, and indeed, Hoo!

    Ikaruga is just the dogs round bits, frankly.

    Though I really need to find myself a DC or GC arcade stick at some point.

    The screenshots on the website look very tasty, if it's anywhere near as good as Einhander then i'll be happy [​IMG]

    I never could get into Einhander, R-Type, and Gradius.

    Hopefully sometime down the line, we'll get Thunder Force 6 and a TRUE sequel to Radiant Silvergun(presentation similarities aside, Ikaruga ISN'T it). Hopefully Capcom is thinking about more Giga Wing and Mars Matrix too.

    What I'd REALLY like to see though, is a sequel to G. Darius. It was hands down the most technically impressive shooter on the PSX, and I'd love to see what THQ could do with some new hardware. Add in the fact that Darius games always have great replay value since they have around 30 levels with branching paths, and the innovative weapon systems can't be discounted either.

    Considering that Capcom makes and publishes Giga Wing and Mars Matrix, I don't think Psyiko has much say in the matter.

    Also, I don't know if you noticed this, but Taito leaves about 95% of its games over in Japan, so it would most likely be THQ bringing it over to the US if they made another Darius game.
