Game Description

The legendary Japanese arcade title blasts its way onto the GameCube in one of the most intense and stunningly beautiful shooters ever! As Shinra, the only survivor of a massacred freedom federation, you must battle the corrupt Tenro Horai with your new and powerful ship, Ikaruga.
