Taito’s multiscreen horizontal shoot’em up was ported to PC Engine in 1990, the first release was on CD then six month later the hucard version (Darius Plus) was released.
Darius is known for its huge robot fish bosses and for the multipath story : the first level is unique then every time the player finishes a level he can choose which one to go through; this ends to multiple endings and different difficult, similar to Outrun branching stages.
The original arcade soundtrack, composed by Zuntata’s founder Hisayoshi Ogura, is included thanks to CD greater space available compared to Hucards.
It was released only in Japan.
