The fourth installment of the Disaster Report series, Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories, is back from the dead, and it looks like the developers are aiming to show another side of natural disasters.
Kazuma Kujo, who created the Disaster Report games, recently stated via Twitter that he is working on a new title.
On March 11, Japan was hit with a massive earthquake and tsunami. The country was left in ruins. Within days, Japanese game developers began canceling, altering, and postponing games. One game, the latest Disaster Report, got the axe.
Earthquakes are great and terrible forces, destroying homes, claiming lives, and reminding humanity as a whole that this planet we crawl across isn't as solid as it seems. The east coast of the U.S. found that out today. For the rest of us, there are video games.
In the wake of Japan's devastating earthquake and tsunami, publisher Irem canceled its catastrophe survival adventure Disaster Report 4, a game that was due to hit Japanese PlayStation 3s this Spring. Now it's halting production of every other Disaster Report game.
Added to the list of games playable on the Tokyo Game Show floor this week is Irem's Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories, the latest and greatest catastrophic adventure, now on the PlayStation 3.
One year ago today I started officially blogging for Kotaku. What better way to celebrate this anniversary than by ticking off a list of journalists that appear in video games?
