I'm not hopeful they'll make the March deadline, but who knows. I did finally receive Ultracore, but still waiting on Vasara. It's pretty disappointing, how long these things take. Not sure why Limited Run can make these things happen, but Strictly Limited can't do so in a timely fashion.

Limited Run has had their share of problems and a lot more experience.

I made the possible mistake of now pre-ordering the Arcade collection on top of the Console collection I pre-ordered a month or two ago. I hope I don't regret it, lol.

You and me both then. They didn't make it clear that it would take months. Also I got Vasara from Play Asia (never again with the custom's duty to the UK) so why are Strictly Limited claiming it's an exclusive?

I didn't see a release date, so i assume it's coming out Feb 28th, as that's when the J version came out last year (i think?)

It maybe due to their rights to publishing in a certain region. It has always been like that

Probably a lot of effort for M2 and they didn't have the time. I do wish it was in though.

The following is an excerpt from the latest update on Darius collection release date. Hopefully all being well delivery to Strictly Limited could be last week in March then off for assembly and despatch thereafter. Looking at a mid April delivery (fingers crossed):

https://mailchi.mp/strictlylimitedgames ... eb-616616/

DARIUS - The master files are currently being QA checked by Sony and Nintendo. If no bugs are found, we will finally be able to start production. We expect the games to arrive at our new warehouse in roughly 6-8 weeks after the QA approvals.

None of their published or stated timelines have ever been anything close to accurate.
Look a their loose language... "currently being Q/A checked" ... "if no bugs are found" .... "start production" ...."arrive roughly 6-8 weeks"
It is generous to suggest the games arrive at their warehouse before May.
Then they have to assemble the limited editions sets.
So shipping in June, at the earliest.

I believe you will be correct in your timings. I think mid April is an absolute best case scenario if the wind is behind them and all lights are on green.

Isn't all of this already readily available in Japan? Is there anything completely new here that is has to be Q/Aed again, and they took pre-orders months ago how is it just hitting Q/A? There can't be that much translation needed here, but maybe I'm wrong.

This is good news for me. I've always been worried that SLG was pulling the PS4 version out of their ass. Not at least I know they got it from Japan, so hopefully no major bugs.

So, I have a package arriving from Germany. This is the only thing it could possibly be. Does strictly limited just create postage really early or did anyone else get a tracking number this morning?

^JP Special Edition also got Darius Plus, Sagaia MD, and Super Nova with the update, making the list of titles on the grand menu ludicrously long. It's so awesome to see that a year after launch the JP version of such an obscure game is still getting proper support free of charge. I <3 M2 and Taito :)

I have a feeling this one might just be G-Darius, Metal Black and guess some handheld ports. Most of the Darius series as been accounted for with between the two current Cozmic Collections so I'm not sure why they are doing a whole ass collection with G-Darius being THE selling point. Rather it be just a single ShotTrigger release. Seems like Taito just doesn't want to release anything that won't be $80-100 edition instead of a modest $35-$40 digital release.

Is there any point in getting Dariusburst PSP when CS is basically that game but better and more feature complete?

I was under the impression that the original Burst was different from the AC and CS games (and I wasn't referring to a specific Burst game, though I would rather see one of the AC games over the PSP version).

Metal Black > G Darius for me personally. There are plenty of console/handheld ports unaccounted for as well. Also DB on PSP is a different game from AC/ACEX/CS. Those are sequels, not upgrades.

I stand corrected. I guess G. Darius ver. 1 and 2 + Taito Legends 2 ver., Metal Black, GB Darius games, and Dariusburst PSP+Second Prologue would be ideal. At some point though I gotta ask, is anybody really dying to take resources away to put more effort into the remaining better entries to play the ZX Spectrum version or some other strange port for the sake of preservation?

I'll be honest. Mentioning the possibility of Metal Black alongside this second collection makes me sad we haven't gotten an updated port of Border Down for modern consoles. That's a game I would love to see M2 bring back to life. The scale of what G.Rev wanted might cost too much but I think M2 could whip something substantial yet faithful to the original.
