Now you can crash and burn in crisper detail than ever before

Treasure has released further details on the PS4 port of their Magnum Opus, the 2001 bullet-hell masterpiece that is Ikaruga.

The colour-defined shmup will be made available on PS4 on June 29. Not only that, but PS4 Pro owners will be able to make use of the ports glorious 4K visuals, bringing the title's frantic, intense visuals and frame-perfect action to life like never before. The port will retain all the features of the PC release, including the Double Play, Prototype, Replay, Screen Rotation modes and much more.

Having already been made available on Dreamcast, Gamecube, PC and Xbox 360 formats, this is just one more way that new generations can experience this amazing, if tough as nails, arcade classic. WWE star Asuka loves it, so I guess we all should.
