He teased that he was working on a new shmup for the PS4 way back in 2014. What the heck happened to it? Vaporware?

I know that he left Treasure for M2. Honestly, if he had stayed at Treasure, there probably would have been even LESS of a chance of this ever coming out. But remember everyone's initial response to the silence on Raiden V when it was announced for the Xbox One?

Anyways, anyone expecting anything? Like an Ikaruga spiritual successor? I am assuming Treasure still owns the Ikaruga name and contents within.

At the beginning of the year Iuchi said development was temporarily suspended due to another project.

Let's see what this year's TGS brings but it really doesn't look like they're currently working on it.

Sad! The gaming industry can always use new high-profile SHMUPS. My PS4 SHMUP collection was finally starting to become noticeable. Oh well, maybe one day.

In a June 7th (2018) French-language interview with Shmup'em all, when asked if they are planning any original shooters besides Ninja Soldier, M2 president Naoki Horii says Iuchi is working on one; he doesn't name the game, but in any case, according to the interview, Iuchi is still working on an original shmup at M2.

there appears to be some in-development footage of Ubusana in this Dreamcast documentary. Is that new?

That's definitely new, looks like a prototype was set up for showcasing somewhere. Very nice.

I see our main man did mention it on his now downsized site http://www.vgmaterials.com/

Keep holding that candle.

I'm pretty sure it is, the older banners were also, the previous one was more obvious as it featured polarized bullets flying around, like you see in the footage from this interview.

Part 1 also has a segment where our savior reminisces about RSG/Ikaruga and some never before seen prototype footage https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eD7JYqty8aE&t=36m
