Treasure announces Ikaruga is winging its way to PS4

The Colour and the Shape

Treasure has announced that, following its recent Nintendo Switch port, its classic arcade shmup Ikaruga is on its way to PS4.

Rumblings of a PS4 port first happened earlier this year, when a rating for the 2001 game showed up on Germany's ratings board. Developer Treasure have now confirmed that the game is in development on PS4 via their Twitter account, where they also noted that the game will see an official unveiling next week, with a release to follow "soon".

Ikaruga's twitchy, deep, reflex-based gameplay has won it an army of fans in the 17 years since its original release in the arcades and later on multiple generations of home consoles. No doubt its PS4 debut will only serve to allow waves of fans, old and new, fresh access to its complex, timeless gameplay.

Ikaruga is scheduled for release on PS4 soon.
