Hooray for Taito. After screenshots surfaced hinting at an HD remake of Raystorm on XBLA, a recently leaked Famitsu scan tells us the company is set to revive another of its classic shooter franchises with Darius Burst for PSP. Soon you can partake in the joy of shooting giant robotic fish wherever you may go.
Burst will reportedly feature more than 11 stages, and continue the series tradition of branching storylines and alternate paths. If you've played any of the earlier Darius games, you know how awesome and/or funny that can be, and what it can do for replay value.
Darius Gaiden was one of my favorite shooters on the Saturn, and it's been so long since we saw a new installment I'd almost forgotten about the series entirely. Nice to know Taito hasn't. Anyone else excited for this one? Check out the Famitsu scan in the gallery and let us know what you think.
