Earlier this month, Nicalis tweeted out an interesting tidbit about the announcement of Ikaruga on Nintendo Switch. Nicalis confirmed that they actually offered Nintendo to reveal the game in a Direct. However, Nicalis says that Nintendo of America “wasn’t interested”. The tweet that Nicalis made can be seen down below, so feel free to check it out.
We offered. @NintendoAmerica wasn't interested. Sorry!
