R-Type and Disaster Report developer, Irem, has been mostly making PSP games. In 2010, Irem is leaping into the current generation with their first boxed PlayStation 3 title. Don't get too excited.
Where is Steambot Chronicles 2? It was shown in 2006 in playable form at TGS for the PS2, then at TGS in 2007 it was announced that it had been moved to the PS3 and they had a really great trailer for it. Since then it's vanished without a trace. This is so disappointing.
No wonder most Japanese developers are so far behind when they're still making games like this.
