Treasure considering an original game for Steam

Following up on its successful Steam Greenlight campaign for Ikaruga, Treasure is considering developing a new original game for PC. Treasure is a Japanese development studio lauded for its intense action games, such as Gunstar Heroes, Mischief Makers and Bangai-O.

"Ikaruga is the first one, and we don't intend on stopping there," Treasure president Masato Maegawa told Famitsu about the studio's plans for Steam. "There are some players who say 'How about Radiant Silvergun?' but we also don't intend to only do ports. We're thinking of making a new original title for the platform, Steam."

Maegawa added that Treasure's current business plan is to focus on PC and work on ports it can release on other platforms later. "For a small company like us, it's almost impossible to release the same title on all hardware, and on the same day," Maegawa concluded. Treasure's last game was monster beat-em-up Gaist Crusher on the 3DS, published by Capcom in Japan last December.
