If you are of a sure age and inclination, then the Tokyo-based Treasure is a reputation that all the time retains its lustre. Founded in 1992 by Konami veterans that had been sick of engaged on sequels, the studio targeted on authentic designs and over the 90s and 00s produced a string of all-time nice shoot-em-ups together with Gunstar Heroes, Radiant Silvergun, Bangai-O, Sin & Punishment, and Ikaruga.

As the necessities for high-end growth elevated, the extra boutique Treasure started to focus its sources on Nintendo’s moveable platforms. Its final game was Gaist Crusher God in 2014, after which it primarily went quiet (though it did re-release Ikaruga on the Epic Games Store just a few weeks in the past). The studio’s thirtieth anniversary was June 19, 2022, and this was greeted by an announcement from Treasure’s social media accounts.

An edited machine translation of the tweet reads: “On June 19, 2022, Treasure Co., Ltd. celebrated its 30th anniversary! This year, the 30th anniversary, we are working hard to announce ‘that’ highly requested title. We look forward to your continued support of Treasure.”

The most essential factor is that Treasure’s engaged on any form of new game after such an extended interval of silence (and sure, there is a good likelihood I’ll get egg on my face when it is introduced as a Switch unique). The odd reference to it being ‘that’ title clearly suggests this undertaking includes one of many studio’s extra beloved video games, although everybody would have a special thought of what probably the most particular candidate can be. Personally I’d simply like to see one other nice shoot-em-up with new concepts from Treasure, whether or not it is an Ikaruga or Radiant Silvergun would not particularly matter.

The studio was named as it’s as a result of the aim was to be thought-about one of many video games business’s treasures. For an extended time frame it was. Those who’ve performed its video games will likely be hoping it will possibly sparkle and shine as soon as extra.
