Turn-based R-Type for PSP - movie

A turn-based R-Type strategy game? See it inside

Atlus USA, known picking up obscure Japanese games for publication in the west, is releasing an all new R-Type game for the PSP in May.

R-Type Command - ready for this? - is actually a turn-based strategy game based on the classic shoot-'em-up. Wondering what it looks like? Check out the trailer in our video player.

Players take control of the commander of a small armada, sent on a mission into the land of alien adversaries, the Bydo. Running low on fuel, the commander is forced to scavenge resources and equipment from the surrounding area.

It's only been confirmed for release in the US to date - but anyway, how weird is this game?
