Oh my...Bullet Hell + Co-op is mighty tempting...It better land in a time frame that isn't overloaded...*glares at February*

So, this sounds suspiciously like a Wii Ware release, but if it's on a disc I will definitely buy it.

My younger bro loved Ikaruga, so we're definitely getting this.

It's a proper retail release. Aksys is shaping up to be a pretty good publisher over there it seems!
