Those of you who own the Nintendo Wii have surely made use of their extensive catalog of older games. It has been announced that out of all of these games, R-Type for the Sega Master System seems to be getting removed from Nintendo’s service on September 30th. The reason for the decision is unknown, but Sega is giving gamers one last chance to grab the title.
R-Type’s basic premise was a side scrolling ship shooting game. Moving from the left to the right hand side of a stage while destroying everything that got in your way. The game included upgrades, and other features that were very impressive at the time of its launch. Its success went on to create numerous other R-type games on a variety of systems. You have one last chance to grab this gem before September 30th when its gone from Nintendo’s online catalog forever.
