It's a nice package, I like that they threw Omnibus 1 in there, I quite liked 2. Darius Plus is also nice for those who haven't played it, but obviously not worth another purchase. It definitely sucks that the carts are separate, that alone makes the JP release preferable to me, and I wouldn't trade that convenience for Plus.

Sorry if I'm confused, but the original import collection doesn't have the console versions, unless there's some other set I'm unaware of.

The super-duper expensive limited edition release had all the games on one cart, minus an Amazon order exclusive (yuck!), the GB Sagaia which was a separate download code. I still have my unused download code because I've been too lazy to make a Japanese eshop account. I bet I could sell my box-set for oodles with that stupid slip of paper ho ho.

AC is right though, it's already sometimes a pain to switch carts so less of having to do that is a plus for me. A Darius Plus if you will.

The reason I'm actually tempted by Plus is that currently I can only play it via Magic Engine due to a busted Duo, so having another physical copy (for use on the main TV to boot) would be grand.

There's also the extra marquees and pin badges - eventually I'd be able to cover my entire person in them as protective talismans.

A pcb cardboard box and marquees when you buy a console game - why?

The chance to actually get this collection on PS4 finally has me interested. I just wish it wasn't under the same old collector-oriented distribution model where you have to compete against scalpers for something that's likely to sell out in 5 minutes.

140 Euro is a bit too much for me. It'd be nice to have those soundtracks but I guess I just stick with a reg. edition of the arcade games

Considering the arcade only disc for Darius 2 and Gaiden, as Darius 1 Arcade Archives has served me well and I don't really care about the console versions. Do we know if these will have online leaderboards?

For those of us unfamiliar with Strictly Limited, do they take actual preorders or is this one of the "buy in the first thirty seconds or fuck you" places?

I already have the original JP release, but thinking about the console version so I can play the MD Darius II and Darius Plus on the go. Too bad they aren't making the GB Sagaia more available or adding the PCE CD games to the mix. I'm personally more interested in those more than Darius Alpha or Darius Twin. I do have the carts for GB Sagaia, MD Darius II, and Super Nova (US Darius Force), though. Not sure why the console only collection is more than the standard. I might just wait for the digital (I'll probably wait for a sale too) since I already have the JP AC only version in physical form.

Ha! I just received the jp version from play-asia yesterday (black friday sale). So I think I'm done with Darius for a minute. Put me in the "maybe if there's a sale on the digital version" boat.

The original Japanese release has online leaderboards, I'm assuming these will too unless they pull an XS Games and start removing features. :lol:

EDIT: I misread, sorry. This is a very good question. Do the console games have leaderboards?

I'm doing the same thing. I'm just going to try to grab the Console edition since I have the Arcade one. I emailed them about GB Sagaia actually. It would be awesome to get that game as a freebie. I genuinely enjoy that version of the game.

As someone with the Japanese special edition I'm really waffling on whether to get this. Having the book in English would be great, but probably not $140 great. I might just go for the Console version for the exclusive games not on the Japanese version.

Is it the same book, but localized?

I believe so, but don't quote me on that. It's a hardcover unlike the Japanese version, for whatever that's worth.

Preorders are online. I went for the full PS4 package; just couldn't be sensible about Darius.

I did the same for the full PS4 edition. How often do Darius games get physical localized releases in this day and age? Might as well.

Just finished preordering the Switch Collector's Edition package. I completely forgot to preorder the Japanese version back when it went live so it's nice to be able to snag this one instead.

It's not sold out, another batch (with half of the stock of everything) goes up 18 hours after the initial batch. The second batch usually lasts a lot longer and in many cases with Strictly Limited Games, hangs around for quite some time.

Never really played a Darius game before. Played Burst but never got into it

I did enjoy Gaiden on the Saturn ages back

I ended up pre ordering the arcade version for the PS4.
Now I'm somewhat interested in getting the console version but I don't want to place another order and spend more on shipping.
Am I missing out on the console collection or will the arcade Collection be good enough?

Having my eye on the next preorder batch coming later today.

Brand preferences asides, any reason to prefer Switch or PS4 gameplay wise? Think i've seen comments about input lag being sub par on Switch in general. Going forward, i wonder if Nintendo will be liberal letting us running Switch games on its next system while Sony kinda announced that for PS5.

Noodalls made a spreadsheet with input lag test results, which includes Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and others. In some cases, the PS4 actually has more input lag.

Actually, I'm a little worried the PS4 port is poorer quality, unless M2 also did it. Aside from Hamster's ACA Darius, none of this was originally on PS4 in Japan. Has SLG said anything yet about who worked on the PS4 version?

I only have a PS4, so we'll see. It's not like I had a choice anyway.

I've wondered about this too, purely as an observer of current-gen emulation specialists. It'd be more convenient to get the PS4 one, but I'll just wait on a Switch if disaster ensues.

They're almost certainly different code bases, so I imagine it would be a major chore to get them both on one disc. It SEEMS like it should be a total gimme, but it's not as simple as it seems.
