UPDATE: Nintendo has listed the release date as June 27

Kokuga, the shoot-'em-up from G.Rev and Ikaruga creator Hiroshi Iuchi, is launching on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America and Europe this June or July.

Featuring a non-linear level map and 4-player download play, Kokuga is a top-down shooter in which you operate a tank through 15 free-scrolling stages, using Attack and Support cards on the touch screen to activate special power-ups.

For more details, check out Danny Bivens' impressions of the Japanese version, which was initially released last September.

UPDATE: The game will release June 27 with a price of $14.99, according to Nintendo's official page for the game.

This makes me very happy. I want more new shoot'em ups on the eShop! Liberation Maiden has been completed and Nano Assault EX has left me cold.

I would buy this.

Naturally I'd prefer a physical release.  But I love Ikaruga and G.Rev so I'm there day one.  Any word on price point?  I'm hoping $10 but guessing $30.

Somewhere in England, a man is rubbing his hands together in glee at this news.  ;) :D

The screenshots look crazy, fitting for a game like this.

Yes!
I wish this was at E3.

I hope it's not anywhere near the Japanese version. 5040 yen!
