New details: Ikaruga

Treasure releases new information on and screenshots from the Dreamcast version of its arcade shooter.


Treasure updated its official site with the first screenshots from the Dreamcast version of Ikaruga, its latest shooter. The Dreamcast version will feature a slightly different presentation than the arcade version. To compensate for the fact that Ikaruga is a vertical shooter played on a special screen, the Dreamcast version will feature black bars on the right and left sides of the screen. The Dreamcast version will also have a practice mode, an illustration gallery, a sound mode, and some other features, but Treasure has no plans to add new levels or bosses.

Ikaruga is currently scheduled for release on September 5 in Japan.
