By Ishaan . June 20, 2013 . 12:50pm

Kokuga, the Nintendo 3DS shoot-em-up designed by Ikagura creator Hiroshi Iuchi, is headed westward, and publisher G.Rev say it’s coming sometime this month or the next—that includes a release in North/South America, Europe and Australia.



While you wait, you can watch a Japanese tutorial for the game above, and check out stereoscopic 3D screenshots on this page.

  • I guess that’s a little more descript that the ‘summer’ we knew about back in April…

  • Haseyo

    I was considering importing this, but I’ve watched a few reviews saying this game isn’t exactly the greatest in terms of controls.

    • Which reviews?

      • Haseyo

        I don’t know where many of them are now, but I do know this one:


        He’s pretty fair imo. Again, it’s not that it’s a bad game or anything. I’ll still get it in English definitely as that’ll save me a good $20 from importing.

        • Thanks for this. More info for me to consider on this game.

    • Mnstrzero00

      Aren’ t difficult controls part of the appeal of grev games?

      • Haseyo

        Difficult controls shouldn’t be the appeal to any game. If you want to add challenge, put it in the game itself and not by giving me arthritis.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    aw yeah, Ikaruga is one of my favorite games

  • 60hz

    been keeping my eye on this – will download.

  • What’s the price? I have about 8$ to spare.

    • Haseyo

      This is a full-blown 3DS game, so probably $40.

  • Rollersnake

    Is this a twin-stick shooter? Does it support the circle pad attachment?

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Considering there is no info about this game being released digital, it should be releasing also in retail right?

    If it is released retail, i am surely going to buy this game again lol. I love shump so much that i kinda eat all of them now.T_T

  • Rytan

    Another game I will be terrible at yet still love to pieces. My body is ready.
