If you love the juicy, vertically-scrolling shoot 'em up action of Ikaruga on your Nintendo Switch, or if you've been holding out on picking it up all this time, you'll probably be pretty pleased to know that a physical release is on the horizon.

There are no concrete details just yet on when it'll be launching or where you can expect to find it, but it's absolutely on the way. It has been teased by Nicalis on the studio's official Twitter account (and you can be pretty sure that the game will appear on Nicalis' store in the near future).

Of course, back in August last year Nicalis showed off the "world's largest Switch game case" for the much-loved shmup, sending fans into a frenzy by making them think a physical release was on the way. We're still not entirely convinced it was a real tease ourselves, but at least it's definitely coming now.

If you're not clued up on this one, feel free to check out our full review.
