Darius Cozmic Collection is a compilation of some of the games in the arcade shoot'em-up series Darius. It was first released in Japan on 2019-02-28 for the Nintendo Switch.
The compilation came in 2 versions: One that featured 4 games (or 3, arguably):
- Darius – in 3 versions
- Darius II
- Sagaia (the wester version of Darius II – essentially the same game, but with slighter shorter stages and some adjustment) in 2 versions
- Darius Gaiden
and another deluxe edition that ALSO featured:
- Darius Twin (Super Famicon game)
- Darius Force (Super Famicon game)
- Sagaia – Master System port
- Darius II – Megadrive port
- Darius Alpha (PC Engine game)
- (Arrange soundtrack CD and an 128 page fanbook)
Darius in the arcades being a horizontal shoot'em-up spanning over 3 screens, and Darius II being over 2 screens, previous ports of Darius have been one-screen versions. With the resolution available for 8th generation machines, the Switch port is a near-perfect arcade port, showing all screens in a band over the TV screen, with the upper and lower parts being extra info and the old stickers that were taped to the arcade machines.
