Use to prefer r type over gradius but after gradius v gradius sound better.

The chances of this are rather low. Irem doesn't make video games any more - their last game was in 2009. They moved (back) to making slot machine games. They're still around though, so they still own the R-Type license. The closest thing they that have to a successor is Granzella, who have some former Irem staff, and who have been largely focused on PlayStation Home. While it's not impossible for there to be a new R-Type game this generation, I certainly wouldn't expect there to be one.

A new rumoured Ikaruga isn't good enough for you?
Check out this sweet box fort I made. Dare I say, 'World's Greatest' :)

While we're at it, I would love a new Einhander (though I doubt Square Enix will ever make another one because their head has been up their ass, as of lately).

While we're naming obscure SHMUPs, a new Kolibri would rock my pants, too.
Think of the allergies b4 you applaud. Next time, just sit there & stare blankly at a person to express your support of something. -Madigari on PS4 @ E3 '13

I wouldnt call R-type obscure since it is pretty much king of the genre. If I was gonna name an obscure one I would say Phalanx
heres the crazy boxart

I wouldn't call R-Type king of anything.

There are many other shmups that are FAR better and more enjoyable.
RE4 sucks because it's not survival horror.
TLOU is like RE4, it's the greatest game ever! ~Gamefaqs
