Ikaruga | oprainfall

A new batch of games, 37 to be precise, have passed the voting process on Steam Greenlight on Wednesday. One in particular is something a lot of shmup and Treasure fans will be quite happy for: Ikaruga. Since its arcade debut back in 2001, it would make its way onto several platforms: The Dreamcast in 2002 and the Gamecube in 2003, as well as getting localized and released for the west in that same year, along with an Xbox Live release in 2008 and finally a release on Android early this year. Having yet another shoot ’em up on Steam is always delightful, but one such as this is worth getting hyped for, especially if you have never played it.

Though of course, let’s not get too ahead of ourselves. As you know, the voting process only makes these 37 titles have a good chance of being distributed on Steam due to demand and with no actual guarantee, but there’s a good chance if everything goes smoothly. So hopefully, all these titles and not just Ikaruga will eventually show up on Steam in the near future.
