imageIrem, makers of R-Type and the Disaster Report series, also have a long running pachislot series called Pachinko Paradise, often abbreviated as Pachipara.


Pachipara Portable Sakura for PSP was slated for release this month, but the game won’t ship. Irem canceled it. The producer apologized to fans and said the title did not reach the level of quality where it could be sold.


This is the second canceled pachislot game for PSP. Last year, AQ Interactive canned CR Hana no Keiji Zan.

    Whoa! I never thought the PSP pachinko consumers were particularly demanding. Good on Irem for sticking to quality. I kind of want to send them donation or something. :P

    That’s fine with me. All I want out of Irem is Bumpy Trot 2. Or maybe a new R-Type game (a shmup, not a strategy game).

    • Exkaiser

      Irem’s staff doesn’t want to do any more Shmups, though.

  • Chow

    I wonder if that’s the real reason, or if that’s just a spin excuse.

    Why they tried to sold this at first ?
