Ikaruga creator announces Ubusuna for PS4

New shooting game still some time away, Iuchi says.


Ikaruga creator Hiroshi Iuchi and company M2 are working on a new shooting game called Ubusuna for PlayStation 4.

On his official blog, Iuchi shared first early details on the title.

“I don’t think it should surprise anyone that the game’s genre is ‘shooting,'” Iuchi said. “It’s the ’50YW’ project I’ve spoken about here a few times. We’re keeping the game system as the base and brushing it up. We’ve built a prototype and are currently tweaking the specs, but for all the changes that weren’t made to the game system, as many changes have been made to the world and story. Since we’re rewriting them how we really want them to be, the background and world of ’50YW’ will be dropped.”

Iuchi continued, “The plan is to sell it on PlayStation 4 as a digital download. I won’t say there isn’t the possibility for it to be multiplatform, but in terms of production scale and budget, M2 is focusing on one right now.”

Unfortunately, there is “still some way to go” before release, with Iuchi asking that fans please await the game patiently.
