Now here's a blast from the past. Courtesy of DotEmu, purveyor of updated re-releases of classic games, Irem's 1987 side-scrolling arcade shooter R-Type is ready to be experienced all over again.
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.
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.
