Remake (2007)

Main Article: Barjona Bombers (2007 game)

In 2007 Himaruya posted a remake of the game on his site as a demo, though it was lost in the revamp that came later in the year. It was very short, only containing a few CG preview images for the game and some text. He announced plans for a completed version in 2008 and posted concept art, but the game has yet to materialize. The demo (balzen.zip) appears to be gone from his sakura.ne server as well (due to its expiration), making it practically impossible to find.

A page for the Barjona games (with updated profiles) was also briefly in existence, but it too was lost when Himaruya revamped Kitayume.

Trivia

  • Though Nishiki, Teruchiyo, TERUKO, Erika, Iyuta, Kamome, Matsuri, and Takara are mentioned in the cast for the game, appear in concept art, and were assigned voice actors, they do not show up in it. It is assumed that they would have appeared in a follow-up game, but no follow-ups were produced or announced until the brief Barjona '07 demo. Tira and Komachi also only appear in a photo in the game, while their voice samples and profiles suggested that they'd play more of a part.
