A new revision of Darius Burst: Another Chronicle, titled Darius Burst: Another Chronicle EX+, makes its appearance 10 years after the original version. It’s coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
The original team is proudly working together on this version. Inin Games is handling publishing and plans both digital and physical versions. You can expect additional features to expand on the arcade version from 2010.
The Darius Burst series started in 2009 on PSP. It was then greatly expanded upon with additional features and improved graphics for the 2010 arcade release.
Pyramid is developing Darius Burst: Another Chronicle EX+ for consoles. It will not only include features of the arcade version but also new features like a replay mode and new missions. It even supports co-op for up to four players.
Prepare to burst with power
The Burst Beam brings a new, strategic dynamic into the game and changes the battles dramatically. The screen-filling laser shoots powerful blasts or can be locked into a certain position and be used as a shield against enemy fire. Asteroids and enemy fire are replenishing the shield, which gives the player the opportunity to hide behind it for quite some time.
Deep sea sci-fi
One of the series’ most iconic features is the unique oceanic-themed design of enemy bosses. They draw their inspiration from a mix of sci-fi and deep-sea creatures, embodied as large mechanical battleships.
The screen is ultra-broad, modeled after the dual-display of the arcade version creating a fantastic sight into the marine-themed setting. The magnificent sea-life panorama is enhanced by an equally great soundtrack. Taito’s in-house sound team, Zuntata, amplifies the adrenaline-filled atmosphere with powerful beats and emotional tunes.
Darius Burst: Another Chronicle EX+ launches on PS4 and Nintendo Switch on June 11, 2021.
