Shooter fans, rejoice - Taito is bringing its classic Darius series to the Switch in the form of Darius Cozmic Collection.

It's expected to launch in Japan on February 28th 2019 and will cost 5,200 Yen. The collection includes four of the arcade entries, but a limited edition - costing 16,800 Yen - will add five console entries, and will also include an 'Arrange' music CD, 'official materials' book and miniature acrylic marquee. Sadly, the amazing G-Darius is nowhere to be seen, but we should probably be grateful we're getting this at all.

Here is the list of included titles across both versions:

  • Darius (Arcade)
  • Darius II (Arcade)
  • Sagaia (Arcade)
  • Darius Gaiden (Arcade)
  • Darius Twin (Super Famicom) [Special edition-only]
  • Darius Force (Super Famicom) [Special edition-only]
  • Sagaia (Sega Master System) [Special edition-only]
  • Darius II (Mega Drive) [Special edition-only]
  • Darius Alpha (PC Engine) [Special edition-only]

You can visit the official website here. The moment we hear about any kind of western release, we'll let you know. Can we have a Switch release of Dariusburst next please, Taito?
