Darius Cozmic Collection

Taito have announced that the Darius Cozmic Collection is finally getting a digital release this September in Japan. Two versions will be available:

  • regular version (5 200 Yen + taxes): includes all the Arcade games
  • Consumer version (6 500 Yen + taxes): includes all the Arcade games + the home console versions (it’s basically the equivalent of the Limited Edition released at retail)

For those who already own the retail version, a major update will be released this September. Details about the update itself will be shared at a later date, and all we know for now is that some features will be impacted by the update:

  • Darius (Arcade), Darius II, Sagaia (Arcade): rankings will be reset, and replay data created before the update will become unuseable;
  • Darius Gaiden (Arcade): replay data and Quick Save data created before the update will become unuseable.
