Ikaruga creator Hiroshi Iuchi has been working at M2 for about a year now, following his time with G.Rev, Treasure, and years of freelance work. On his official blog, he announced that he’s currently working on a new shooter for PlayStation 4.
Iuchi mentions in his blog that as part of M2, he’s been helping out on various projects for the company, but that he got the go-ahead from M2 to talk a little bit about his new game, called Ubusana.
While he couldn’t share much as far as the game’s features and contents go, Iuchi revealed that it will be some sort of shooting game that will be a downloadable title for PlayStation 4; however, he doesn’t rule out the possibility of it being a multi-platform game.
According to Iuchi, it will be a while until the game is released, and the game’s systems are currently being polished, while working is ongoing on adjustments using the original prototype, that was known as the “50YW” plan.
Iuchi also mentioned that he normally wouldn’t make an announcement without much to show for it, but it was M2 president Naoki Horii who told him, “I’m sure that those who buy shooting games will patiently wait even if we make an earlier announcement.”
More details on Ubusana will be revealed in the near future.
