Ikaruga 2.0!

Hiroshi Iuchi the creator of the hellish Dreamcast and GameCube top down polarity shooter Ikaruga also developed a shooter for the 3DS called Kokuga with 'shmup' specialist G.Rev.

The game was released in Japan last September and hopes of a Western localization appeared to be slim. However there is now proof that Kokuga will make it overseas as it has been rated by Germany’s USK board where it says the text has been translated into English!

Kokuga is a little different to its predecessor Ikaruga in that it isn't as difficult. In this game you take 20 cards with you into battle, all of which give you a helpful boost should you start to become overwhelmed by the enemies. It also features a four-player mode, which will certainly add to its replyability!

It's unknown if Kokuga will be a retail release or an eShop download, but we'll let you know when we find out!

What do you think about this surprising news?
