The arcade cabinets for the 1986 horizontal shooter Darius and its 1989 sequel Darius II featured a three screen set-up, giving the game a single panoramic view.
Taito is releasing Darius Burst: Another Chronicle, the latest entry in its Darius series, in Japanese arcades. The cabinet is a four player set-up and features a wide wide-screen. Perfect for shooting ships that look like fish!
Last year, Darius: Burst was released on the PlayStation Portable.
There will be a location test for Darius: Burst: Another Chronicle next month in Akihabara. This winter in Japan the game will get a, dare I say, wide release.
