Here's what Hiroyuki Kimura told in an interview in 2018:
Full interview: http://shmupemall.com/interviews/interv ... 18015.htmlMy hope is to hopefully make a completely different game after Aka to Blue, probably an action game that everyone could enjoy. I think people might misunderstand Tanoshimasu to be shooting game-only company, but after our action game, who knows, I might make an Aka to Blue sequel! [laughs]
Also, my ambition is to become a company like Treasure. Treasure is a fascinating company, who made interesting action games such as Gunstar Heroes, and also good shooting games like Ikaruga. I aspire for Tanoshimasu to become a company able to provide a quality of a similar calibre.
Of course it was a long time ago and it was before the arcade success of Aka & Blue Type-R.
By the way, Arcade Belgium is a reputable arcade news source since 2003. We don't write ****. It reminds me of the guy on Facebook who didn't believe that our interview with ShouTime was our own. He was sure that we translated an interview from IGN Japan. It wouldn't even be possible as both interviews got published at the same time and of course I wasn't aware of the Japanese interview. Needless to say that all questions were my own but of course there are some mandatory generic questions. Luckily, after all these years, we are well known and respected by the amusement industry professionals, and that's what matters.
