Ikaruga creators Treasure recently revealed that they’ll be making an original game for PC, but while we’re waiting for that, they’re also making a few adjustments and additions to the upcoming PC version of Ikaruga on Steam, including a new mode with a horizontal screen orientation.


4Gamer reports that Ikaruga on Steam will be based off the Xbox Live Arcade version, but with a few additions. One of these is called the “Double Play Mode,” which lets you take control of two ships with a single controller, for those of you seeking more of a challenge.


Meanwhile, the side-scrolling shooter mode is pretty much the same as the original horizontal version, made to give Ikaruga a little twist. The game will use Steam’s Cloud features, along with rankings and other features.


As far as resolution goes, Ikaruga will support full HD with 1920×1080 or 1920×1200 resolutions. The screen can be adjusted to 16:9 or 4:3 display ratios.


According to Treasure, the price will be around $9.99 on Steam, and they also stated “recent PCs should have no problems running the game.” You can view system requirements for the game here.


Ikaruga will soon be available for purchase on Steam.
