A Premium Discography Dedicated to All R-Type Fans!
R-TYPE is the title of a horizontal-scrolling shooting video game that first premiered in arcades in 1987. Its sci-fi-themed world features grotesque aliens that are part bionic part organic.
Our shining memories of the R-TYPE series are accompanied by its marvelous soundtracks, and today in 2021, we have brought them back to life in high-quality digital recording format. Along with the famous BGM from the main series, the R-TYPE Original Sound Box also includes songs from the wide and varied R-TYPE ports and spin-offs from across the globe. Interviews from the series’ composers line the pages of the discography’s booklet. The box art is a brand new drawing by Akio, the graphic designer of the original R-TYPE video game.
With the long-awaited new title R-TYPE FINAL 2 (Developer: Granzella Inc.) just on the horizon, 2021 is a year where shoot ‘em up fans from all over the world will once again gather around the R-TYPE series, making it the perfect time to debut a truly timeless edition of the R-TYPE series discography.
