    The US version has reversible box art.

    Still looks pretty darn nice, all things considered.

    Agreed. I pulled the trigger and pre-ordered this. I was very hesitant, due to the fact that its been over 9 years and I still don't have my copy of Paprium. I also pre-ordered Mega Turrican Director's Cut. The cost for this game on eBay is absurd. Its cheaper to get this CIB from these guys. Go big or go home!

    So Darius shouldn't be arriving until August? I was starting to worry that mine got lost in the mail or something.

    Any word on when Mega Turrican Director's Cut is going to be released?

    On the site it still says early 2021.. so who knows. The latest update was last November.

    As for Mega Turtican DC (and the Turrican Anthology 1 & 2 on current machines) the site now says later this year and more info coming soon. 🙂

    Well, we've gone from an August 2021 release back in June, to Q3 2021 around the end of July, to now Q3/Q4 2021 now that August is nearly over.

    This thing just keeps getting pushed farther back

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand now it's Q4 2021. I figure by November, it'll be "Early 2022" or something.

    I'm a big fan of the first Darius game, having now been exposed to it thru the Cozmic Collection. I can see why the series is respected as a classic in Japan, although Darius II feels like a step too far (the dev team admits the extreme difficulty was a last minute change lol).

    I also felt that the PCE Darius Plus is quite excellent - given the necessary changes made to adapt to single screen play.

    How's this port in comparison gameplay wise?

    Yeah, I checked my account to see if any updates had been added. Nothing to report. I think it's just going to be a while. At least it's something else to look forward to. Fortunately there's a good deal of new games coming out or in development.

    I'll answer that in my next review. Many nuances to talk about, I'd say.
