Ikaruga developer Treasure has successfully passed the Steam Greenlight voting process and is bringing the shooter to Valve’s store soon. It’s good news for fans of the game, but the Japanese studio has stressed that language barriers between both companies are making the procedure something of a “hand to hand fight.”

In an interview with Gama, Treasure CEO Masato Maegawa has revealed that Microsoft enquired about the Saturn shoot ‘em up, Radiant Silvergun for its XBLA service.
“Microsoft actually asked us if we could put it out,” he said. “We’re thinking about it, certainly, but it’s not as simple as just saying ‘OK, let’s put it up.’ I mean, sure, with Ikaruga, we released it as-is without having to do or add a great deal to the game, and it was popular and well accepted for what it was. But if you play Radiant Silvergun nowadays, it’s certainly aged in assorted ways, and I’m not sure they’re all good.”
However, although Treasure seems positive about a re-make, the develop remains unsure as to whether Live Arcade would be its natural home:
“I think we’d definitely like to see it out there. But the situation around that game is a bit different from Ikaruga, so I don’t know if we’d see it on [Xbox Live].”

According to the Major, Treasure’s Ikaruga is now up on XBLA. It’s 800 Points, as usual, and is something you probably want to own. So buy it.

According to Treasure’s site, Ikaruga’s going to be published on XBLA this Wednesday. If you don’t know, this means you should definitely buy it, although we say that with some caveats after the fiasco that was Mr Driller Online. Still, great news. The shooter classic will cost you 800 of the most deserving MS Points you’ll ever spend. Hopefully.

Treasure’s beloved top-down shooter, Ikaruga, is to be released on XBLA on April 9. Great news there, if you’re a fan of making your eyes and brains bleed. There’s no word on whether or not this is going to be a worldwide thing, but we’re going to keep the faith and tell you it is, even though we have no clue. We’re nice like that.

We can embed this one, and that’s just great. According to this, Treasure shooter Ikaruga is listed on the Japanese developer’s website as an 800 MS Point release any time now. The game is something everyone should play, if only to see if you are actually genetically capable of finishing it. We’ll never forget that ridiculous movie of the Japanese guy playing it two-player by himself in an arcade. Fingers crossed, anyway, that this is true.

According to this, the upcoming Bangai-O Spirits for DS will have a level editor. There’s a hands-on with the upcoming Treasure game throuh he link.
That’s not all. Apparently you’ll be able to transmit levels to other DS users by sound.
“Once you’re done your creation, you can save it to cartridge and send it to other Bangai-O Spirits owners in a very unique way: through the power of sound,” said IGN. “Using old-school modem-like technology, you’ll convert your levels into a sound that other Bangai-O Spirits carts will recognize. Place a set of headphone earpieces to a DS microphone, plug in the 1/8th inch jack to the host, and send that file off through high-pitch whines. It’s similar to the way that we Commodore 64 and TRS-80 programmers used to save and load our created programs, and here it makes a return in a contemporary game design.”
Geek essential, number one, 2008. No release date yet.
