Radiant Silvergun physical

Limited Run Games has revealed plans to produce a physical release for Radiant Silvergun on Switch, and multiple versions are in the pipeline.

A standard edition is planned, along with a steelbook edition and a collector’s edition. The last one is the biggest of the bunch with all sorts of extras. In addition to a copy of the game, the collector’s edition features a chiptune arrangement and soundtrack, special box, retro styled box, steelbook slipcase, steelbook, a keychain, pin set, and acrylic diorama.

Treasure’s shoot ’em up game Radiant Silvergun has been announced for Switch. Not only that, but it’s launching today.

Radiant Silvergun originally came to the SEGA Saturn and arcades in 1998. A new version was made available for the Xbox 360 in 2011.


Nicalis has provided an update on the physical version of Ikaruga. In the west, the game is arriving on October 27.

The physical edition comes with the following extras:


New information is in regarding the physical release of Ikaruga.

In Japan, there’s already a confirmed release date of September 24. Nicalis, who is handling the overseas version, is only stating that it’s coming “soon” and it’ll be out by the end of 2020.

Nicalis is giving Ikaruga a physical release, the company announced today. The project is “currently in active production.”

Additional information, including a launch date, “will be announced when all the details are finalized.”


If you want to own Ikaruga on Switch, the only option you have is digital. Nicalis released Treasure’s shoot ’em up awhile back exclusively on the eShop. However, it sounds like fans will have another option soon.

On Twitter today, Nicalis posted the image above – a boxart image for Ikaruga, which teases a physical copy. The company didn’t say anything else aside from suggesting that fans sign up for their store newsletter. That can be done on the official website here. Stay tuned for future updates.


Earlier this year, Treasure worked with Nicalis to bring Ikaruga to Switch. Could Radiant Silvergun be the next shoot ’em up from the studio to make its way over?

A couple of weeks ago, Treasure responded to a fan on Twitter asking about Radiant Silvergun on Switch. Here’s what was said:


Ikaruga is one of a few different games out today on Switch. For a look at the launch trailer, continue on below.


Earlier in the month, Nicalis announced that Ikaruga is coming to Switch. The reveal was made through social media as well as an official press release.

Had Nicalis had its way, the announcement would have gone down slightly differently. The company actually reached out to Nintendo about revealing the news in a Nintendo Direct, but the Big N “wasn’t interested.”

Ikaruga is coming to Switch, Treasure and Nicalis have announced. It will cost $14.99.

Treasure, who is also responsible for Nintendo’s Sin and Punishment series, originally made Ikaruga for the arcades in 2001. The vertical shooter would end up on GameCube a couple of years later.
