R-Type confirmed for iPhone

EA to publish shooter remake.

An iPhone version of classic shooter R-Type is on its way to the iPhone.

Looks like Electronic Arts has picked up the rights to publish the game, which will feature side-scrolling gameplay just like in the old days.

You can also expect eight levels, eight bosses and a wide variety of power-ups and ship upgrades. There are three different control modes - tilt, touch and virtual d-pad.

EA has yet to announce a price or release date for R-Type for iPhone, but we do know it's "coming soon".
