9/16/2010 at 8:38 AM

Continuing the TGS news this morning, Microsoft have announced that the Treasure's classic SHMUP Radiant Silvergun will be coming to Xbox Live Arcade.  After Ikaruga's success, we heard rumors that Treasure was considering bringing the game to the platform, the title was originally in the arcades and on the Sega Saturn.

Radiant Silvergun features two player co-op and much like Ikaruga there's a detailed chain system in place to really rack up high scores.  In addition to that there's the seven weapon system which you can see detailed in the screenshot above.  While the graphics have been upgraded slightly the game will also see some variations of the chain system.

No release date was given, but we do have some new screens.
