Darius Cozmic Collection Out Now

Ross founded the UK Anime Network waaay back in 1995 and works in and around the anime world in his spare time.

Classic shooter Darius is back, bringing us not only a collection of the arcade hits, but also the console classics too - so there's guns. Lots of guns.

Old-school gamers will fondly remember the name Darius, blasting it's way through arcades since 1987, blowing away the competition with 3 screens, multiple endings and non-linear play. Due to that success, the game was also released on consoles, and has been a mainstay of the shmup series all the way up to today. 

As if in answer to all our locked-down frustration, Taito has released two separate collections, one for arcade, the other for console, so that we can blast the living hell out of fish-like alien invaders. There's never been a better time to kick their collective invading asses!

The Cozmic Collections are out now for both PS4 and Nintendo Switch - we'll have a review up shortly so you can see which of these titanic collections deserves your cash.
