Almost 0. A lot of the shorter bullet hell games are digi releases, and if I remember Ikaruga's physical releases werent spectacular when it came around the first time.

-1. A 10 dollar game isn't profitable to sell physical. SHMUPS are niche games, Ikaruga was a sales disappointment on the Gamecube, it will probably fare better on the PS4 digitally. At least I hope so. Most SHMUPS have been digital only in the last few years.

I would prefer physical and would buy it too.

At least the Gamecube version is worth a lot of money, due to the rarity of the release (at least the european version).

There is definitely a chance. I can almost garuantee that either LRG and Eastasiasoft are looking at it. They have released alot less popular shmups than Ikaruga. And Ikaruga is a well known shmup. It would sell out instantly!

Your optimism borderlines foolishness, but we will see as we get closer to the release date.

Yeah there's a good chance it's gonna be get on disc at some point.

These few-thousands units runs seems profitable otherwise they wouldn't exist.

I don't think so. Psyvariar Delta is getting a physical release and Ikaruga is a way better and well-known Shmup.

The last physical version of IKARUGA was for the Ninteno Gamecube. Since then, the XBLA, PC and NesSwitch dont have a physical copy of it. Dreamcast version still rulez!

I dunno, I'd say there's a chance as lots of utterly useless indies have been released on disc lately. It seems the more ugly and crap the game is, the more likely for a physical edition.

 

Wait, did I just accidentally make a case against a physical Ikaruga disc?

I remember having lot's of fun and ofcourse frustration on the AC, GC and XBLA. We managed to pull through and clear the game on each platform! 😊

Yes that was literally 2 weeks shy of a year ago. Evidently they have changed plans in a year. Sorry my grandmother Cassandra didnt pass the powers of premonition to me -_-.

The game was never planned to get a physical release. Other Publisher picked it up instead to help funding. Like LRG, Eastasiasoft does. These things take time you know.
