Dariusburst Another Chronicle EX+ jets into battle on PS4 and Switch next month

Breaking away from Darius Cozmic Revelation

ININ Games has announced that it will be releasing a standalone edition of Dariusburst Another Chronicle EX+ in western territories on June 11. Available on PS4 and Nintendo Switch, the sci-fi shmup is an updated edition of 2011 arcade Dariusburst Another Chronicle EX (minus the “+”).

The title is already set to arrive later this year as part of the Darius Cozmic Revelation compendium, which also includes G-Darius HD. This set a full-price release with a limited run of physical copies, so one would assume that ININ Games has chosen to break out Another Chronicle EX+ to ensure there are plenty of copies to go around. Frankly, If you love Darius, you’ll probably have already pre-ordered Darius Cozmic Revelation, but at least now you’ll have the choice.

Dariusburst Another Chronicle EX+ features an ultra-wide resolution, representing the dual-monitors of the arcade original, and will feature updated visuals, local four-player co-op, four game modes (including exclusive new scenarios and branching stages), and the option to play as the devastating Silver-Hawk Murakumo in each and every mode. It’s shaping up to be a great edition of a button-pounding classic, and with the Switch edition, you can now enjoy alien-blasting action on-the-go.
