Battle Robot Space Fish in “G-Darius HD”, Coming Soon for Switch, PS4
Taito and ININ Games have partnered up to release G-Darius HD, a remastered port of 1997’s arcade title… G-Darius. Developed by M2, G-Darius HD will be available physically and digitally for Nintendo Switch and PS4 later in 2021 (that’s for both North American and European territories).
While the Darius shoot ‘em up series dates back to the mid-80s (or as we called the genre back then: shooter), G-Darius introduced polygonal 3D graphics to the traditional 2D formula of shooting robot fish in space in search of the mythical G-spot.
Okay, so I made that G-spot thing up.
Here’s the official breakdown of G-Darius HD from ININ Games, followed by a trailer and such:
