Gunstar Hero

Speaking to, Maegawa commented that he really liked the job fellow Japanese developer IntiCreates did with Mega Man 9. This might suggest that Treasure is looking at doing similar things with its own IP – which should get all serious video game fans very excited indeed. New Gunstar Heroes, anyone?

However, before you get carried away with the idea of Treasure throwing its weight behind WiiWare, it’s worth noting that Maegawa also stated that the company’s focus would remain on traditional ‘disc based’ releases, and the upcoming Sin & Punishment 2 will NOT be a WiiWare release - something that had been rumoured recently. Boo.

Maegawa also gave his thoughts on the Virtual Console service, details of which you can find over at our sister site Virtual Console Reviews.
