We’ve been covering the progress of Taito’s epic shooter Dariusburst Another Chronicle for a while now and after seeing it released in Japan last year and then tested in Europe and the US this year, it’s finally time for venues to pick the game up so more players can enjoy this unique game. Taito has announced that the English version of game is now available for purchase (interested parties can contact Taito directly LINK FIXED).
I’ve had plenty of hands-on time with this game as I’ve been hosting the US location test at my facility since September and I am hopeful that many of you can get a chance to play it soon as well. I know I say this about a lot of arcade games but it’s really good. Thanks to the Chronicle Mode, this game has a ton of content that gives you a good reason to keep coming back to it and it’s unlike anything else currently in arcades, providing an experience you just don’t find anywhere else and it’s worth it. It’s also worth noting that for fans of co-op gaming this is also a gem since you can play with 4 players at a time. In fact there are Chronicle Mode levels that require 4 players to pass it. More information on the game can be found here if you are unfamiliar with it.
