Ikaruga shmupping up Steam on Feb. 18

Are you ready to die … a lot? You better be because Ikaruga is hitting Steam in a mere four days, on Feb. 18, to be exact. The game’s Steam page finally went live, and lists everything you’ll want to know about the game before it becomes available.

No price is listed on the Steam page, but according to Treasure’s Twitter, they’re aiming for about $9.99, although that hasn’t been finalized as of yet.

At launch, Ikaruga will only support two-player, local co-op, but online co-op is apparently promised at some point in the future, and it will support an Xbox 360 controller.
