R-Type XBLA announced

Microsoft has just announced at Tokyo Game Show 08 the R-Type will be coming to Xbox Live Arcade.

The game will be called R-Type Dimensions and and you'll be able to switch seamlessly between 2D and 3D graphics, apparently.

That's definitely worth getting up at God-knows-what-time.
