Steambot Chronicles 2 Still In Development



News on Steambot Chronicles 2 has been scarce…or non-existent, rather…since the game’s initial reveal. The project, named Bumpy Trot 2 in Japan, was originally in development for the PS2 until developer Irem switched over to the Playstation 3. Recently, ScrawlFX got in touch with Irem to investigate whether or not it was still in development.


“We are still developing Bumpy Trot 2,” an Irem rep confirmed to them. “We are now trying to release it in Japan as soon as we can.” When further questioned as to whether there were plans for a western release, Irem responded that no plans for a release outside of Japan had been decided upon yet. Keep your eyes on the game’s website, just in case…although, it hasn’t been updated in ages.


A big thanks to Xeahnort for the tip!
