What You Need to Know:
- Wonderful news for you fans of top down shooters or Bullet Hell as they're widely known, as Nicalis officially announced that cult classic Ikaruga is making its way to Nintendo Switch May 29th!
- Ikaruga on Nintendo Switch features both single-player and two-player (local) cooperative modes, as well as global leaderboards that can be accessed online for tracking high scores. Ikaruga can be played in the traditional horizontal mode on Nintendo Switch, or flipped vertically for arcade-style “TATE” mode action.
- Throughout the gameplay, as the amount of absorbed bullets increases, so does the player’s homing laser attack. When maxed out, this special attack can be ten times more powerful than a standard shot and all attacks can be chained together to earn bonuses that will achieve higher scores. Get ready for all the action later this month, thanks to Treasure and Nicalis!
