Irem Readies Nintendo 3DS Title

By Spencer . July 25, 2011 . 1:30am

imageThe developer behind Disaster Report and over a dozen pachislot titles is dabbling with the Nintendo 3DS. Guess which series they’re bringing to Nintendo’s handheld.


No, it’s not R-Type. It’s Pachipara. Pachipara 3D (temporary title) is in development. Their 3DS game also happens to be the only publically announced title in the pipeline.


Their last Pachipara port, Pachipara 15: Super Beach Story in Okinawa, was released on May 26 in Japan.

    I think that’s the quickest my hopes have ever soared and just as quickly were shot down.

    Well played Spencer, well played. ;D

    • i agree that was very mean


    • It was like the subtext read my mind or something.

    • Hey, I said it was a pachislot game on the front page :P

      • DanteJones

        Haha yeah, I read the main title then subtext right after, so it was “Ooooh-awwww…” moment. XD

    • Yes. Doesn’t really matter if of they close or make nothing but such games anymore, it’s they same result to me.

  • SolNeko

    • Japanese people love them obviously.

        I think gambling with real money is illegal in Japan

            “Because gambling for cash is illegal in Japan, balls won cannot be
            exchanged directly for cash in the parlor; instead the balls are
            exchanged for tokens, which are then taken outside and exchanged for
            cash at a place nominally separate from the parlor and possibly run by organized crime” – Wiki

            Like I said, illegal.

          • Yakuza. heh.. its still madly popular even if it is illegal.

  • joesz

    I just got owned by him..

    I was so excited then. All my hopes were torn away when Steambot Chronicles 2 was officially cancelled. I have no faith left in iRem. I wish them well in their endevours in the safety games market. :'(

  • Meh, since the Disaster Report, Steam bot chronciles person in charge left, i wont get excited with irem again

  • I guess this is a conservative method to diversify their portfolio fast.

    Hell Yeah! This certainly is a worthwhile replacement for the loss of Disaster Report 3!
