Ikaruga director's Nintendo 3DS shmup is jetting West

Kokuga coming to eShop this summer

A successor to two of the greatest shoot-'em-ups ever made is coming to Nintendo 3DS in Western territories later this summer. Kokuga, the latest project from Ikaruga and Radiant Silvergun director Hiroshi Iuchi, is preparing to make its attack run on the eShop in the Americas, Europe, and Australia sometime either this month or next. 

Unlike its forebears, Kokuga eschews the classic fighter jet set-up and in favor of a "compact mobile tank." Set against the backdrop of an ethnic rivalry hurtling towards war, the game centers on a young operating crew learning to use the armored vehicle in a variety of simulations and training exercises. Of course, it all goes horribly wrong and the youngsters are pressed into service. Commence the shooting!
