Future Cave shmups?

Will Cave port any more shmup/bullet hell games to iOS? I'm really afraid they are shying away from doing any future ports, but I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts/information. I think their ports are the pinnacles of iOS shmups, and I would hate for them to stop porting their treasures onto the platform.

I hope so. But I read awhile back that Cave wanted to get into the social gaming arena. In the meantime I recommend Sky Force 2014. It's one of the very best shmups(non bullet hell) on the App Store.

Touch Arcadehad a brief news update a while ago. Seemed like CAVE was developing a slightly more cartoony shmup. Not sure what happened with that.

Ah well, a shame. I wish they would get around to porting over all of their games to iOS. A friend of mine is debating picking up an iPad Air this winter mostly for shmupping on the go, and while at this point I would tentatively say go for it, not having all of the Cave games on there is a sad state indeed.
