Following a Switch release last week, Treasure announced today that their acclaimed shoot ’em up Ikaruga will be officially unveiled for PS4 in the near future, with an announcement slated for next week. This has been expected for a while ever since a PS4 version of the game appeared on a German rating’s board in March. The Tweet, accompanied by a picture of Ikaruga artwork and PlayStation controllers, is embedded below.

Translated, the Tweet reads, “” ” in operation! The title screen is (C) TREASURE only. PS4 users, please wait just a little. Official announcement next week, it will be released soon. Coming soon!”
This will be the title’s first appearance on a PlayStation console. Ikaruga is a highly acclaimed shoot ’em up that holds up flawlessly, and fans of the genre should certainly have this on their radar.
