Ikaruga developer Treasure may bring more games to the west via Steam, chief director Atsutomo Nakagawa said in a recent Famitsu interview translated by Destructoid.

“Ikaruga is the first one, and we don’t intend on stopping there. There are some players who say ‘How about Radiant Silvergun?’ but we also don’t intend to only do ports. We’re thinking of making a new original title for the platform, Steam,” he said.

Sweet. Treasure’s other games include Sin and Punishment, Bangai-O and Guardian Heroes.
