Grab a hammer, Ikuze Gensan is coming (to Japan)

Developer Irem, notable for their R-Type franchise, is working on yet another PSP game. Carpenter Story Ikuze Gensan looks like a 2D/3D platformer, where you carry a big hammer and cause lots of explosions. We like.

Supposedly, you play a boy who's on a mission to stop an irresponsible construction company. In your quest, you will savagely destroy tons of private property and cause general chaos on the streets of virtual Japan. With Irem's penchant for mayhem, we're pretty psyched for this -- even if it means we'll have to import it.

Import R-Type Tactics if you dare

It's no secret that among the horizontal scrolling shooters, Irem's R-Type and Konami's Gradius series' are the best of the best. If you disagree, go play them. Seriously. Anyway, we were alerted via e-mail today that Play-Asia is selling R-Type Tactics today, as it was released overseas. Normally, importing games requires some kind of knowledge of another language, unless you don't mind having no idea what's being said, but this is R-Type at its core. The story won't revolve around much more than "kick ass, don't take names, but do it tactically this time." So go ahead, if you really want, snag this game and take advantage of the region free PSP! We're tempted to.

Ten new R-Type Tactics screenshots

Okay, so we admit we're a little biased. Any time we see Irem do anything, we want to report it. They've released ten new screenshots of their upcoming strategy game, R-Type Tactics. While they look good to us, we'd love it if Irem released a demo, so that we can fully understand how to play the game. We're sure R-Type will be fine as a strategy game, but a nagging voice in the back of our head remains a little unsure ...

Check out our updated gallery for all the pictures.

A first look at R-Type Tactics

If you haven't heard, Irem is working on a new R-Type game for PSP. R-Type Tactics looks to take the series in a bold new strategic direction. Tactics will feature all-new turn-based battles based on grids ... while retaining the series' trademark good looks and massive explosions.

Check out the first direct-feed screenshots of the game in our gallery below. Then, visit the official Japanese website to find out more about the game (provided you understand Japanese).

Steambot Chronicles producer making a PSP game

Irem's Kazuma Kujou (the producer of Disaster Report and Steambot Chronicles), is reportedly working on a new PSP title. In an interview with Gpara, he mentions that he's working on a sci-fi strategy game for our beloved system. He unfortunately didn't reveal any other details about the game. Later in the interview, he did say that he'd like to explore player freedom in an upcoming game. Though it is unknown if that desire specifically applies to this upcoming PSP release. I quite enjoyed both Disaster Report and Steambot Chronicles. They still stand out as being unique, even in the crowded PS2 gaming space. Let's hope he can bring that same quirky and creative gameplay to the PSP.
