User summary

Darius was a horizontal scrolling arcade shoot'em-up game presented in 1986 and release in 1987. It featured a gameplay of three TV monitors side-by-side, and a large bench on which the players sat, with a subwoofer inside the bench.

The game also featured multiple endings, with a stage selection after each stage.

Due to the strange video output with 3 screens, all ports of Darius to home consoles have been shortened to one-screens.

The following information is from Wikpedia:
In 1990, three port to PC Engine were released in Japan (source: Wikipedia). Super Darius was CD-ROM² System add-on on March 16, followed by Darius Plus as an 8-Megabit HuCard version on September 21. Darius Plus is notably the only commercially-released HuCard that has enhanced support for the PC Engine SuperGrafx. A third version, Darius Alpha, was also released as a sweepstakes giveaway and was limited to only 800 copies. Darius Alpha is an alternate version of Darius Plus where the player fights only the bosses. Like Darius Plus, it also has enhanced support for the SuperGrafx. All three PC Engine versions were developed by Bits Laboratory.

During the same year, a home computer version of the game titled Darius+ (unrelated to the similarly-titled PC Engine port) was published by The Edge and developed by Softek for the Amiga, Atari ST and ZX Spectrum in Europe.

In August 2016 the original arcade version was re-released for PlayStation 4 in Japan and other Asian PS-Store's, the port was made by Hamster Corporation and is part of the Arcade Archives on PlayStation 4.

Darius R, a remake of the first Darius game with some different tunes and a fewer number of stages, was released for the Game Boy Advance in 2002.

While never originally ported to the Sega Genesis, a port of the game by M2 will be featured on the Sega Genesis Mini microconsole, scheduled for release in 2019.

In 2019, a collection of Darius games, called Darius COzmic Collection, was released for the Nintendo Switch, and is the first arcade-perfect port, as it shows all 3 screens at once.
