Darius shooter for GBA

Not what you want it to be, sadly

PCCWJ, previously known as Jaleco, has announced its plans to release a revamp of side-scrolling 2D shoot 'em up Darius. Developed by Taito in the late eighties, Darius was best known for its three-screened arcade cabinets, which created the illusion of one big, long screen into which you flew and fought. There's nothing too special about it - you fly from side to side fighting enormous drones and enormous bosses (many of which look like overgrown crustaceans), but it's a good, solid shoot 'em up, as PCCWJ obviously feel.

Darius R will appear on the GBA in Japan this December, and we have several screenshots from the game's 15 levels for you to examine.
