More on Ikaruga

The Nintendo Switch version of the game features single-player and also local. You can also play two-player coop, and it contains “global leaderboards that can be accessed online for tracking high scores.”

You can also flip the Nintendo Switch vertically for “arcade-style TATE mode action,” Nicalis has confirmed that it worked with acclaimed developer Treasure to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch. Ikaruga costs $15 USD.


Well this is a nice suprise, we always thought Ikaruga was an overlooked title when it graced the Nintendo Gamecube. Perhaps now it will get a bit more of the audience it deserves!
