There are so many exciting games to look forward to especially during the early part of 2019. For those who were fans of classic arcade shoot em up titles back in the late 80’s and early 90’s you will be happy to know that the Darius series developed by Taito Corporation will be re-released for the Nintendo Switch in February 2019. The Darius Cozmic Collection will include games such as Darius, Darius II, Darius Gaiden G-Darius along with Darius Alpha. Despite, side scrolling shoot em up titles not being as popular as they used to be in the 90’s the Darius Cozmic Collection definitely has the potential to stand out on the Nintendo Switch.
The vibrant 2D sprites and side scrolling arcade styled gameplay for the Darius Cozmic Collection is something that will definitely appeal to old school gamers. Depending on how successful the Darius Cozmic Collection is for the Nintendo Switch we could end up seeing a revival of the series altogether if Taito Corporation has any interest whatsoever in making it happen.
