Relive Shump History with Darius Cozmic Collection

Who doesn’t love a good shoot ’em up, especially from glory days of the arcade, mega drive and SNES and Taito knows this well. Thus Taito are releasing Darius Cozmic Collection on Nintendo Switch on 16th June. It comes in two flavours, the console edition packed with 6 titles including 9 versions:

  • Darius II (Mega Drive, JP version)
  • SAGAIA (Genesis, US version)
  • SAGAIA (Master System, EU version)
  • Darius Twin (Super Famicom, JP version)
  • Darius Twin (Super NES, US version)
  • Darius Force (Super Famicom, JP version)
  • Super Nova (Super NES, US version)
  • Darius Alpha (PC Engine, JP version)
  • Darius Plus (PC Engine, JP version)
  • Price: 54.99€ / 44.99 GBP / 59.99 USD

The arcade collection, featuring a really cool wide-screen mode like the two screen original format has 4 titles with 7 versions:

  • Darius (Arcade, original version)
  • Darius (Arcade, new version)
  • Darius (Arcade, extra version)
  • Darius II (Arcade, Dual Screen version)
  • SAGAIA (Arcade, ver.1)
  • SAGAIA (Arcade, ver.2)
  • Darius Gaiden (Arcade)
  • Price: 39.99€ / 34,99 GBP/ 44,99 USD

The port work has been done by M2 so you know it’s going to be top notch, the only issue is price, perhaps Taito should’ve followed Capcom’s example with their beat ’em up bundle for £15.99 with the English and Japanese versions of 7 classic games.
