Irem Software Engineering
Irem Software Engineering is a Japanese video game developer and publisher. They are primarily a developer for video game consoles, but have a history of releasing arcade games as well, the most notable being Moon Patrol, Kung-Fu Master, and the R-Type series of shooting games. After the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, Irem closed its game development division in order to focus on pachinko and slot machine development. Some of the game developers moved on to form Granzella, the company currently responsible for R-Type Final 2 on Kickstarter.
