The game was met with strong reviews upon release and has developed a devoted fan following.
Developer Treasure, which has largely been quiet in recent years, tweeted in June: “On June 19, 2022, Treasure Co., Ltd. celebrated its 30th anniversary!
“This year, the 30th anniversary, we are working hard to announce the highly requested ‘that’ title. We look forward to your continued support of Treasure.”
Treasure’s last releases were a duo of 3DS games in the Gaist Crusher series. Prior to this, the company had been prolific during the PlayStation 2 era of console gaming, developing 12 titles between 2000 and 2006.
